Counterfeit Kits Challenge Kit March 2016

Good morning all

Today I am bringing you a kit I have counterfeited from the CKCB here.

This month we were encouraged to think outside the box as the sample kit they had supplied was bereft of patterned paper! Yep.. that's right... no patterned papers!

Instead they gave us this image  from the kit they had selected to work from


Whilst I like a challenge, along with the next person, this did throw a bit of a curve ball for me! (As I gather it did for the design team too!)

But, after some consideration and thought, I decided to so with a simple kit including Kaisercrafts Take Note collection which features cameras and has some of the more autumnal colours that feature in the original kit.

I also added some Heidi Swapp stamps and a couple more stamps, some photo frames and stopped there..never have I collated a kit as quickly as I did this one!

Now while I know I have 'cheated' and used some PP's, it is mainly PL pages and stickers so I reserve the right to add more card stock and extra embellishments.

So, without further ado.. here it is!


Its great to be back amongst my friends at CKCB after an absence of over a year (having moved four times in 2015 I was a bit pre-occupied!) Also, having now taken early retirement, I am looking forward to getting back into the world of blogland!

I do hope you'll join me on my journey... feel free to follow my blog as I aim to be a regular blogger again.

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Elaine, I'm really pleased that you decided to jump back in this month and that a 'difficult' kit choice didn't stop you. Remember, that it's never 'cheating' to make a kit work for you and your stash! That's the whole idea behind the Counterfeit Kit Challenge! :)
