Counterfeit Kit, Time To Take The Challenge.

I have been watching Counterfeit Kit Challenge for a few months after seeing it on another blog and have finally decided to jump in. I used to go to a monthly crop and that would keep me going with inspiration but since I have become more involved in my ‘paying job’ I no longer have the time. Sadly, I have not done much Scrapping for the last 18 months or so.  It’s time to get my head back in the game. SO, each month I will follow the inspiration and will try to put a usable kit together.

Not only do they post a kit to counterfeit but give lots of lovely links for homemade embellishments. 

Here’s my first counterfeit

010

Bazill colored card stock, words paper/ striped paper/ circle paper from ‘Road Trip’ sheets by Marcella K,  graph paper by K&Co, ‘Wild saffron’ covered buttons by K&Co, hand made rosettes, free printable embellishments, ‘Collectionz Buttonz’ by Junkitz, K&Co chipboard kit, ‘Tim Coffey-Metal Art’ by K&Co, ‘Wild saffron’ labels by K&Co,

009

Alphabet paper/checker board paper by K&Co, numbers paper by DCWV, Fly A Kite Wild Cards by October Afternoon,  Wild Saffron chip board alpha by K&Co., stickers are 7 Gypsies ‘Home’.

Although the counterfeit challenge kit was very school based, boyish and summer oriented, I chose to tweek it towards what I wanted to use it for. I kept boys fun and games, warm weather tones, but brought a little travel in there instead of school house.

My pictures will be arriving soon and I am looking forward to using this.
