Counterfeit Kit Challenge-September Reveal!

I'm super excited to share with you that after Guest Designing last month for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge, I have joined as a permanent member of the Master Forgers!  I have loved this challenge since its start, and Bethany is the most wonderful (and convincing!) DT leader. 

We have an absolutely gorgeous inspiration kit, this month, too!  It is the Island Paradise Kit from Scrapbook Circle.

I also took inspiration from the kit's Tiki Torch and Bungalow add-ons:

Lots of gorgeous jewel tones, journaling cards, cork, "smile", "hello", "happy day", foxes, anchors, bokeh, veneer, labels, arrows, photo frames...the list of yummy scrapbook goodness goes on and on.  I think this is one of my favorite inspiration kits ever.  EVER.

I started with my patterned papers, and I ended up with pretty close matches to almost all of the originals:

I couldn't find any fox paper in my stash, so I substituted the birds.  For other papers, I might not have had the same colors, but I had similar patterns.  I added them, keeping with the jewel-toned theme.

Lots of cork stickers (which I will personalize with stamps), journaling cards and snippets, as well as some glitter phrase stickers, provide the base for my embellies this month.

I couldn't possibly create a kit without stamps! I know I will pull from my stamp collection to embellish the cork stickers, but I'm not sure how yet, LOL.  I'm including these stamps/sets in my kit, as well:


There are several things that I'm anxious to counterfeit this month:

these Basic Grey Grand Bazaar chipboard alphas... 

these AMAZING wood sequins...

this fun, trendy paper...

and finally, these fun clips:

A busy month, no? :)

Time to hop along to the next stop!  Thanks so much for popping by!
