110113 CKC November Kit Reveal Blog Hop!

Wow! Is it really that time again?
 This month give a hearty welcome to the amazing Vicki as our Guest Designer :~)
The full listing of the hop will be at the end of this post, so don't miss a thing!

Over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog we get the chance each month to troll our 
stash & put it together & then actually USE it! But first, we have to be inspired... 
This month our inspiration comes from Jenni Bowlin's October kits & add-ons.

There are lots more goodies in the add-on kits, a la Jenni!
Let's see what we can find in the Magic Blue Box~
(this month I had a little helper at the photo session, lol!)

Meet my October kit "Rustic Vintage" - a nod to Jenni B - beginning with the papers.

I have really mined the depths of my paper stash for some oldies but goodies! Authentique Genuine "Friendship", Crate Paper Restoration "Slipcover" b side, mystery paper - these are all in place of the plain cardstock - Echo Park Note to Self "Stripes", Crate Paper Maggie Holmes "Happy Day" b side, Bo-Bunny Serenity "Blossoms" b side, MME Lost & Found Two Breeze "Dream" b side, Basic Gray, Authentique Loyal "Honest", Bo-Bunny A Gift of Love "Block Party Fireworks" b side, Bo-Bunny Etcetera "Index" b side, October Afternoon Farmhouse "Clothesline".

Did you catch the pattern here? Most of my choices were the b sides! That made me realize that this
 kit will come alive with the details & extras, not the patterned paper, which will be a stretch for me.

A great mix of alphas at my disposal!

Some great flats (she was seriously NOT moving, lol)

More goodies...

Up close...

I have included some JB touches here & there, some transparencies to fussy-cut, and I hope to add some more vintage images from my Graphic Fairy downloads.

Now hop along, and be sure not to miss a thing!


  1. Great colours and I love that it's mostly the B-sides - I almost feel cheated these days if the paper isn't double sided! Ha ha! Your kit is chokka full of lovely elements and so many alphas! Wow - that is a LOT of title work. Looking forward to seeing this kit come alive in your more than capable hands

  2. Big laugh at myself. I always perk up when I recognize something in someones stash. "Hey! I have that!" and feel a kindred connections. was more like "Hey! I wait, I MADE that!!" You know I am thrilled to see you use your "breezy badges"
