Counterfeit Kit Challenge October Kit Reveal and Blog Hop

Drip, drop!
Drip, drop!
It's a rainy day here in the northeast.  A perfect day to stay in and kit.
This month Master Forger, Susan chose a collection pack for us to counterfeit.
"Indigo Hills" by Pink Fresh Studio is a bit modern for my taste, but there's always a way to approach the inspiration when it doesn't speak to you.  
My eye was immediately drawn to the indigo blue and yellow, so that's the way I'll tackle my kitting.

Here's my take called...

"Scrappin' in the Rain"

Let's take a better look inside the umbrella to see the extras...

Touches of gold mimic the inspiration.  I'll be "showering" my layouts with more goodies than shown here as the month goes on.  I was having trouble gathering things that "worked" so I may have to take my lead from the specific layout I'm working on at the moment.

And the papers...

Classic papers from My Mind's Eye, Basic Grey and Authentique feel like the right fit for me.  The yellow and blue combination is a favorite of mine.

Let's welcome our guest designer, Kelly!  We are so happy you are playing along with us this month.

Be sure to hop along (and jump through rain puddles, too!) to all of the other Master Forgers.
Now I must go and bring in those supplies as rain and PAPERcrafting supplies don't mix!
Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Very pretty! I love the soft colors in your papers and the touches of gold.

  2. I so love how you present your kits and in the rain is true dedication!
    A super sparkly kit to take those drip drops away!

  3. Cute papers and gorgeous idea for presentation Lynnette. Enjoy your kit.

  4. Your staging for your photography is really awesome! Anyway - yes beautiful kot you put together! Love the yellows and blue

  5. love all the blues...and I may have to add some "golds" to my kit after seeing yours!

  6. I like that you picked what appealed to you from the inspiration kit and used that as the basis for your kit. Yellow and blue is always a lovely and versatile combination. You've got some pretty letter options too. Hope you enjoy the month!

  7. I'd love to have seen your neighbours' faces when you were outside taking these photos! Great presentation as always and a lovely kit with just the right amount of blue and yellow. I'm late commenting but I did drop by and admire this early in the month! The gold touches are perfect and I agree about allowing yourself the chance to add things in during the month - mine changes a lot between putting it together and finishing it off!
