A few projects made with my counterfeit kit

On Friday I was mentioned on The Counterfeit Kit blog as having the worlds largest kit. Uh oh! I guess I better get using it! I'm being watched! As usual I haven't had as much time as I'd like to scrap, but here is what I've done so far.

The first is a mid week mojo sketch from Scrapbooksteals.com This sketch was done by my super talented friend Melissa Dehne.
                                                                       Amethyst #3

This is also a mid week sketch, This one done by Kristy Lee.
                                                                      Amethyst #4

I also made a few cards. Two of them based on Scrapbooksteals Monday card sketch. One I just threw together with scraps.

I'm gonna try to squeeze in more than just a mid week mojo this week! Wish me luck!

March counterfeit kit

When I saw the March inspiration kit for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge. I was a little worried. I don't have a whole lot of blue and yellow in my collection and I just could figure out which direction to take my kit. So I sat down and looked through my paper stash, I finally came across the right paper to start my kit. I decided on this piece from Crate Paper: Restorations.
From there I chose I few more pieces from Restorations and then my paper selecting got a little out of hand. I ended up with almost 40 pieces of patterned paper. I considered putting some back but I prefer to have a large kit to work with so here's everything.

Mid week mojos with my counterfeit kit

I seriously had so much fun working with my counterfeit kit! I used it for the whole month of February and loved being pushed outside my comfort zone. Here are the layouts I created last month, all are from Scrapbooksteals Mid week mojo sketches.
I just finished putting together my March counterfeit kit and will post it tomorrow when I can get a picture!
