CKC August kit

It's that time of the month again where I get all excited & inspired with new challenges & new kits. And what better place to start than with the Counterfeit Kit Challenge for August. That said, if I am really honest, I struggled with this one! I just really didn't have anything in my (vast) collection that I felt matched this at all! So, I decided to take a slightly different approach this month & picked out a few shapes & colours to build my kit on. 
This is the original kit...
And this is what I came up with...
 Some yellow, some brown, some blue. Some clouds, some spots, some feathers. With a dash of chip & doilies for good measure. I had some thick twine that matched the colours so have also included that & the rest I will just have to make up as I go along. Still, I am happy with the final result...just ;)
Here is the link to join in the fun & thanks for popping by..Jx

CKC 1000th blog post contest

Ok, so I hold my hand up & admit that I may have got a little over excited when I read about this challenge from Counterfeit Kit Challenge! I have put together a whole kit (alright, alright you got me...I put together 3 kits before deciding on one ;D ) So here it is....
I picked the July main kit from My Creative Scrapbook 

And this is my counterfeit kit...

Then onto the challenge. I decided to go with a card challenge to "bring the inside, outside"

And here are my examples...

Cirlcles are punched through the front of the card & an embellie applied to the inside of the card to show through. The pp on the centre card is the reverse side of the black & large floral pp.
I actually completed all of this on the first night the challenge was posted but because we have had some internet issues for the last week I am only just able to post this now. All sorted now so I am back online.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend & thanks for looking..Jx
