Hot Of The Press Counterfiet Challenge Kit #1

I actually started this LO over the weekend. I used this paper by "Hot of The Press" that can be misted, inked, chalked, flocked, or whatever else you want to do with it! I was a bit worried when I saw how the paper came out once I got done glimmer misting it and inking it, but once I got the picture down I was happy with it. Can you tell I am trying to use up my Thickers? Those things are like rabbits --- they just multiply :-)

I sat down yesterday while my son finished up his school work and came up with this two page LO using the March Counterfeit kit that I put together. I am so pleased with this -- you have really no idea. See, I have had the penguin stamps and paper in my stash for at least two years. I was so tickled when I found this set because penguins are my favorite animal. I thought for sure I would use it up in a flash and have many uses for those cute little stamps, but it never happened. As I was putting the kit together I was able to see the paper mixed in way I did not envision before. Then I pulled out these left over pictures from my trip back home two years ago and came up with this:

I am not very good with two page LOs. I am a one page kind of girl, but I am so happy with this on so many levels. Feels good to use up my stash! TFL!
