This month, my Scraps & Stash kit is inspired by the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog, and I’m thrilled to be participating in their February blog hop. See, not only do they provide you with inspiration for stash kitting and tutorials for “counterfeiting” elements you don’t have, they ALSO invite members to participate in a monthly hop showing off their take on one of the month’s challenges. What a great site, right?

I chose to try Challenge #1, which was to use something clear or sheer on a project. This was a perfect excuse to use one of the Basic Grey Hello die-cut pieces. On this layout (which is based on Stuck?! Sketches‘ February 1 sketch), I used the View Master wheel in place of a doily. Perfect for this travel-themed page, if I do say so.
