Counterfeit Kit Challenge September Reveal and Blog Hop

This month at Counterfeit Kit Club our inspiration begins over at Scrapbook Circle 
with their kit...
August Kit: Island Paradise
Island Paradise 

Rich jewel tones and exotic prints evoke a sense of a faraway land.  
Take a look in my "Treasure Chest" to see what I have discovered...

Here's a closer look at my paper selections...

While I didn't have any of the papers shown, I remembered a Maggie Holmes paper pad that has a similar bokeh paper.  While flipping through to find it, I noticed another paper pad with a color palette pretty darn close to the inspiration.  Could I just use papers from the same paper pad?  (GASP!) 
 That feels somewhat like cheating!

Wait a minute...CKC is all about using up stash, making it work and creating pretty things.  So away I went, tearing out papers from the same pad to match the inspiration.  In the end I actually used (3) 6x6 paper pads, so it does feel a little more eclectic than I first thought. 

Nestled within the jewels, you'll find dark edged cork and glittery turquoise flourishes and letter stickers as also featured by Scrapbook Circle.

Not all of the treasures would fit in the chest, so my handy printer's tray catches the overflow.  Sparkly sequins and dark stained wood veneer add to the richness of this kit.

While not exclusively a card kit, I am thinking the 6x6 papers will lend themselves nicely to some greetings.  I am a bit short on note cards right now anyway.

So now it's time for you to discover your own treasures buried deep within your scrap stash.  Be sure to share your kit and creations over on Mr. Linky.

The order of the hop is listed below starting with our faithful CKC participant 
and guest designer for the month, Tina!  Welcome!
