Counterfeit Kit Challenge November Reveal and Blog Hop

Welcome to our November Reveal!  The full report on this month's offering begins at the Counterfeit Kit Blog, so go here if you'd like to hop in order.  This month we are featuring a kit from "Scrapbooks & Cards Today" entitled, "Fabulous Fall". 

 You've probably seen the full layout of the kit in the previous stops on the hop, so I grabbed this photo from the website that gives you sort of a mood board feel for the kit.

I soaked up these photos and then proceeded to counterfeit purely going on intuition and feel.  No matching of exact trying to copy embellishments.  Just grabbed what spoke to me from the "autumn department" of my scrapbook store...I mean STASH!  Sometimes it's best not to overthink it.

Here's what I came up with...

Since I just LOVE my printer's tray, "Tray o' Plenty" seemed like an appropriate name for the overflowing and over-abundance of scrap supplies I have at my fingertips.  I do feel very fortunate and blessed to have so many fun supplies.

So thankful for my scrap-bestie who always showers me with goodies.  Fellow Master Forger, Leslie (you will visit her next in the hop) sent me those FAB wood veneer owls and leaves, kraft doilies, metal clip birdies, tickets and pointer stickers!  That's MOST of my kit!

Sorry for the glare...this was the only time for my photo shoot and the sun was quite bright.  The little American Crafts 6x6 pad called "Autumn Crisp" plus a DCWV "Spiced Cider" paper pad are going to serve as my papers this month.  Throwing in paper pads (and we ALL seem to have many of them) is great for quick kit building and actually using them up (or at least making a dent).  All coordinated and ready to go!  Definitely remember that when time is short, but you still want to build a kit.

Well, Ms. Scarecrow and I are going to start digging in to the supplies!  Be sure to link up your kit to November Mr. Linky.

Here's the order of the hop!

A warm welcome to Guest Designer and fellow Jersey Girl, Binty!  
So glad to have you with us this month!
