On to the inspiration! Clair tells about her choice for this month's kit: "I've chosen a kit from September 2016 that, to me at least, seemed like a nice transition between summer and autumn. It makes me think of the outdoors, camping, cooler evenings and warm cider. It's the Lost River Kit from Studio Calico. I hope that you like it!"

 Let's open up the Magic Blue Box & explore my September counterfeit!

There are a lot of elements I liked (pennants, kraft envelopes, doodled tree paper), 
but I was more inspired by the mood board on the blog reveal (hence the name of my kit):

Yummy!Here is my gridded match-up:
I have two grands starting kindergarten this year plus eclipse photos to scrap, which directed many of my choices. (I don't always think ahead like that!) I've rounded out my kit with those pages in mind.

My version of the Project Life-style cards:

I have collected some alphas & will return to my stash as needed.

Hop on for more Master Forger inspiration, and don't forget to return on the 4th for our Forgery on the Fourth post that gives you the inside scoop of creating counterfeits of some of your favorite elements. That could be as easy as a free printable download, so don't miss it!

Can't wait to see what you put together!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love this! Especially all of the back to school touches.

  2. Brilliant idea to focus on their mood board - I didn't even realize that one was available! I love how you interpreted it in your match-up and that you were planning ahead as you gathered your supplies. And how can those little sweethearts be entering kindergarten already?!?

  3. Well done Leslie, good idea using the mood board. Your kit looks very appropriate for the themes you mentioned.

  4. I love how you've used the mood board and found such great complimenting pieces! I find it really helps to build a great kit with photo ideas in mind, I can't wait to see how you use your kit :)

  5. Fantastic choice to go with the mood board :) I actually like that better than the kit too and looks like a good way to choose for your kit. I too have the same things to scrap plus a little getaway that we are taking today so that will influence my choices of papers this month :)

  6. I love the fact that you decided to work from a different inspiration. I had no idea there was a mood board available, but I love how you have made it work for you! x

  7. This is so cute, I missed the mood board. Absolutely love your version - cute cute cute.looking forward to seeing your projects.
