090122 CKC September Kit Reveal & Blog Hop


It's hard to believe it's already September, 2022!

Counterfeit Kit Challenge will be run this month by Master Forger of Ceremonies Juliet. First, let's meet her Guest Designer, Christine Harden!

I'm excited to join!
My name is Christine Harden and I have been scrapbooking about 23 years (since my daughter was 6 months old). In October I will have been married to my high school sweetheart for 31 years and we have one daughter. I am a 12x12 scrapbooker, mostly single pages, but do have the occasional two pager. It is very hard to pick a single favorite manufacturer, as I think so many have their own unique look and feel, it would be like picking a favorite child. 

I tend to be a collection scrapbooker, and add "stash" items when I think of it! My typical scrapbook time of day is 4:30 am!  I have a full time day job in addition to a side hustle and my scrapbooking hobby. I owned a scrapbook store 11 years ago, before online shopping took over the marketplace.  So my scrapbook room still looks like a store, or so I'm told.  :-)  I currently participate in hops Scraplift Crafternoon and MIUM (Mix it Up Monday). My favorite inspiration is sketches, and I really enjoy interpreting sketches with my own twist.

Juliet says,  Hit all the buttons for me!  Love the blues and greens with a touch of orange!  Reminds me of early fall colors and also a little bit of the 'back to school' vibe. Love those high top tennies and oh those papers!

 As always, I started with the papers.
This was the first sheet I pulled, which inspired my slant on the color scheme.
Mary Beth Shaw Artists' Paper, Stampington & Co.
