The kit that won't die...

Hey folks -
Been awhile! Nice combo of busy-ness and mojo-lessness, but I'm not complaining -- plus, the house is cleaner than it's been in months!

Anyway, how about a layout? Even though the "official" deadline for Counterfeit Kit projects for March is quite past, I still have a few more (and still more leftovers I could keep using!). Here's one:

Ah, good times. In case you haven't noticed yet, I kinda like beer -- the good, the snobby, the microbrewed. We earned a free beer tasting at our local watering hole, and of course I scrapped it!

I used mostly the add-ons from my Counterfeit Kit, which you can see here.  I love that Cosmo Cricket paper (Social Club) in the background. Patterned dots make me happy -- it doesn't take much, people!

Also, those thickers might be my new favorite. Closeup time:

(ooh, can you tell these two pictures were taken during completely different weather/lighting conditions? I sure can!)

We invited 8 friends and family members to the tasting, and we chose them based on their love of beer rather than on whether they actually knew each other or not -- a risky venture, but feed and water your friends and they'll have a good time, just like plants! And so we did.

Hope you're having a lovely day, wherever you may be. The blog may be quiet again for a bit, as I'll be in (hopefully) warm and sunny Atlanta. Don't bother robbing my house or anything while I'm gone -- Andrew makes a good guard dog :) If I spy anything particularly crafty, I'll be sure to tell you all about it.

This is awesome, Ang! I love that paper, and how all the elements work together. And the evening sounds pretty fun, too! :)

Hi there Angela, great LO's ,love the colours:0) I know I'm a bit thick at times but I haven't met any thickers, LOL. Are they the letters (beer tasting) that you have here? If so they look cool!
Hope you enjoy your stay, away in Atlanta (I'll get there one day)Have fun :0) xxx

Hey Angela - Have a great trip! I have been wondering what you have been up to with your blog so quiet! I am in the same boat at the moment- super busy and no mojo for scrappin. Picking up me new kit at the store tomorrow- hope that will give me some inspiration to get back at it :)
Have fun!!!!

What a great layout! What fun times! I laughed at the kit that never dies! I have paper packs of DP that I am convinced that reproduce itself! :-)

Ok, is it wrong to ask how many beers one has to buy before they get a 10-person beer tasting?!? What an awesome night that must have been--it's so fun when your friends can be friends. :)

I love those thickers, too--is it because they resemble bar snacks? That paper is super-fun, too, and I love the "everybody wins" sticker. I say keep workin' that kit, girl!

Mmmm, beer! You're going to love visiting here. ;) This is a fun layout because it's vertical and because Meg said the thickers look like pretzels. :D
