Counterfeit Kit Challenge February Reveal and Blog Hop

It's an exciting month!  My scrappy hiatus is complete and I am back just in time to welcome our February Kit presented by CKC participant, Emma Clark.  I "met" Emma through the Layout A Day scrapbook challenge and was thrilled when she started playing over at Counterfeit Kit. She is a prolific and dedicated scrapper who not only knows how to kill a kit with tons of super creative layouts, but now is also a kit club creator!  UK based, Mind the Scrap brings us our February inspiration entitled, "Snuggle".


My interpretation brings us back to a 1950's diner.  The pinks and blacks with pops of teal and overall playful nature of the kit had me hanging out at the SOCK HOP!

Let's see if the dance floor is open...

My daughter's toy doll diner came in handy for my kit staging this month.  I followed the solid cardstock colors exactly by including a navy, turquoise and lime pieces.  (I love this combo!)  The geometic triangles just below the solids is a good stand-in for Emma's light blue and navy one.  In addition to sky high cakes, pies and malts,  you'll find my version of the transparency behind the counter.  While not clear, I felt the black scripty words and images made a perfect substitution.  Up above the "specials" board are a few more pieces of paper that round out the collection.  Some more turquoise and a multi-colored piece that stands in for the scalloped banner like paper.  Black thickers and more scripty words work well to mimic Emma's vibe.

Let's twist on over to the counter to see which kind of embellies are on special!

I added some Valentine goodies as love is in the air this month! 

Some lacy doilies can pretty up the blue plate special or a layout!

Why don't you grab a booth, put a few coins in the jukebox and come up with your angle for this month's kit?  Whether it takes you down memory lane, through the sea of love or to inspiration point, I hope you create a kit that keeps you scrappin' around the clock!

Speaking of Sock HOP, it's time for you to HOP over to see Margie.  

Lynnette:  YOU ARE HERE

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a fun interpretation (as always) and I love how it's staged!Missed you last month!

  2. And once again I'm completely amazed at your kit and your inspired unveiling of it! Definitely caught the hip and cool vibe of your selections and I especially love the embellishments you added - the colors are just gorgeous and fun.

  3. Beautiful kit and well displayed too :) I agree about the sock hop it does remind you of that :) It'll be a fun kit to play with :)

  4. Lynette, seriously? How do you manage to come up with something new each month? Your imagination astounds me! This is such a cute kit - and very faithful, I think, to the original!

  5. Thanks Lynette, I'm so pleased (and super proud) to be working with CKC this month.
    I ADORE your kit, i love all of the embellishments and everything looks better in a doll diner right?!?!? may have to try that ;)
    Cant wait to see what you do with it this month xxx

  6. Thanks Lynette, Im so excited, and super proud to be working with CKC this month.
    Im loving your kit and embellishments especially, you've picked up our vibe perfectly!! I must take on board the staged diner look, everything looks better in a doll diner right?!?!?! love it xxx

  7. I second what the others have said - you were sorely missed last month and your staging is just delightful, imaginative and so very creative! I can't wait to see what you come up with each month and I'm astounded how you manage to surprise us every time. Your kit sums up the original and your staging inspiration so perfectly and I can really see how you will use the supplies to make Lynnette pages in all their glory! Can't wait to share this LOAD month with you!

  8. Chocolate malt & a patty melt, please - & can I get fries with that? ;-) She's ba-ack! Your staging has my mini-lovin' heart. I think your kit will just about make pages all by itself, it's so packed full of goodies!

  9. I don't know anyone that doesn't love a '50's vibe. I would like to thank Gracie for sharing her malt shop with us. It is adorable. The scripty paper is a good stand in. I was thinking, if you wanted to forge, you could lay a clear overlay on it, and trace with a quick drying photo pen. And personally, in my humble opinion, no kit is complete with out paper doilies. You layouts will be hoppin' and boppin' all through the month.

  10. Lovely kit and an awesome way to display it:).
