Let's Get Sketchy with my Counterfeit Kit

Here's the first of (hopefully) many projects completed with my November Counterfeit Kit!
I really like how this page turned out!  I cut some elements with my Cameo - the feathers and leaf card, and managed to use up some of that embellishment kit I've been hoarding for ages - the book paper and this tag:

The journaling was the hardest part for me.  Jason's mom has dementia, and we're noticing it not just in how she acts but in how she looks, too.  The kids are very freaked out about it, so I wanted to make them a page to let them know how even though she's changing, she's still very happy (at least, when we're around!).

Here's the sketch I used from Let's Get Sketchy:

Nice, huh?  I'll leave it at that for now, but stay tuned for a card I've got in the works using some of the leftover papers.
