Two challenges with June Counterfeit Kit

I had high hopes for finishing my spending freeze this month, starting about 5 pages on the long weekend,  but then life got in the way! 
I have a drawer full of photos waiting to be scrapped and it is in a woeful state! I started this month by going through an envelope of photos and making up little page kits from my June Counterfeit Kit, mostly just paper and cardstock.  I did pull some more supplies as needed - this doesn't bother me at all!  I see a kit as a starting point and have no problem pulling out extra stash.

This first page has a process video and is for Scrapbooking Top 50's challenge for the month:

The photo I chose to scrap isn't the most non-perfect photo - it's really just the bad lighting, but the story is definitely "real not perfect", telling about an attempt to make a pavlova with stevia instead of sugar, early on in my sugar-free days.

I had some white rub-ons in my kit, and I decided to rub them onto my background and then do my gelatos over the top. I love how that turned out!

Next up I used this sketch from Stuck!?:

This was the perfect opportunity to make sure I used some of the Stampin Up butterflies I included in my kit!

I had more photos from the same day so I made a companion page to go with it:
