Counterfiet Kit

I am way late on the Counterfit Kit for this month. Then again since I normally don't do them (I just look at the website and Ooooo and Awwww over it all) I suppose that since I actually got one together is an accomplishment in itself! I really was going to try to stick with the kit, but I ended up just pulling and pulling more stuff from my stash and this is what I came up with:

 Here is the first LO I did with it. I am really mad that I can't flip it :-( Grrrrr....it is such a cool LO! This was actually for a challenge at Scrapfit. I was suppose to drop paint to make a shape or something. I tried to make flowers out of it...
 A close up of one of my flower clusters. I ended up tearing up and sizing down a piece of cardboard. I then sanded it a little and painted it white. I thought it would be a quick process....it wasn't....it took 2.5 hours...sigh.....but I really like the results :-)


Last but not least, the last LO I did this weekend with my kit. I really am digging on it!
I gotta confess that I have really missed doing my own thing in regards to scrap booking. I have been living on sketches, patterns, and CTMH that I think I forgot how I scrapbook. The two layouts I did over the weekend are a reflection of my style. It was nice to have so inspiration to spark off my creativity. I can't believe I am saying this, but I may let CTMH go after I am done with this season's hostess club. I would like to try to live out of my stash for awhile and save some money.

Thanks for stopping in!

Love love those rolled flowers! Beautiful LO! I have so much in my stash I could start a store I think. SAD! I am trying to go to my scrap and leftovers first to create my cards and use those scraps up!
