Challenging Myself


I’m dreadful for standing on the sidelines watching, but never quite having the nerve to jump in and participate.  But no more! … nope, don’t hold me back .. I’m jumping in.  I’m joining in for the first time with the Counterfeit Kit challenge blog.  Yes, I know I’m so late to the party. 

I wasn’t 100% sure what to do, or what not to do, or how much you were meant to put in a kit – so I’m thinking I may well have gone a tad overboard! LOL.  Still, the plan is that this is the only thing, (other than my photo & glues) that I’ll take with me to the crops this month. Plus, I can just bring this goodie bag down with me in the evening to scrap in front of the tv.
So this is the original inspiration kit picture, from Polly Scrap Kits.  I just love Navy, Yellow and Red, so I was very happy when I saw it. I feel it has such a seaside theme to it.  

And here is my take on it; here's the papers and cardstock - I also went through my scrap draw and pulled a few small bits out as well.

Here's my Embellishments goodies

and here's the whole kit n caboodle
 
Its been a while since I put a kit together, oh but I enjoyed every single moment of it. I didn't have any of the cute little envelopes, so of course my trusty silhoutte flew into action.  Well, do you think I’ve gone a little crazy here?
I'm so looking forward to delving in and what with National Scrapbooking day tomorrow .. it's win win.

  3. I think you did a wonderful job pulling from your stash. Its full of goodies that should give you lots of layouts. I hope you have fun and no I don't think you went over board. There is no right or wrong when creating a CKC kit. I have made really small kits that I only done 2 layouts with and then on the other hand I have made kits that I had way to much left over. Good Luck and I did follow your blog so I can see what all you have created, also thank you for your comment on my kit and I welcome you to follow my blog.

  17. I have seen a few references to this kit idea just lately - at the moment I am wading through so many bought kits but something to thing about when the day comes that I do finally use them all up.

    That is a fabulous looking kit - looking forward to seeing what you create with it x

  18. Ooooh! Those envelopes look fab! Was that a purchase from the store or did you design them yourself?

  19. Oooh, what a lovely kit! So many gorgeous papers and other bits and pieces in there! One of the great things about making your own Counterfeit Kit is that there is no right or wrong to how big or small you make it. No one is going to slap you on the wrist if you don't use it all up, but if you do . . . you can always make yourself an Add-On!
