Counterfeit Kit challenge - layout

I have done another layout using my cfk, I actually did it on the 9th, but as it was for another challenge that my team on UKScrappers had set, and that didn't go live until today, I couldn't post it here until now.
the criteria for the UKS challenge is
Use a greeting as your title
Oldest piece of paper or stash
Stamp using an item which is NOT a stamp
I had a lot of fun with this trying out different things to stamp with, in the end I went with a little seal from a Per Una label that had hearts on and the inner seal from a Coffee Mate tin using one side for the background paper and the other side for the circle chipboards.

I've also done a couple more layouts for UKS challenges
for this one we had a sketch (one of mine). I had fun getting messy making the pattern paper on the left hand side lots of inking with distress ink and then spritzing with shimmermist
Bloomin' November

and for this one the challenge was to use paint, an odd size or shaped photo and either glitter or bugs (the team setting the challenge is the Glitterbugs)

Say Cheese
I painted over some of the leaves on the patterned paper because they were bright blue and looked all wrong but this fitted one of the challenge criteria perfectly

I love your Fall layouts :)

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
