November! or should I say November? (PHOTO HEAVY)

All the fall/Halloween/gratitude postings have inspired me to scrap this weekend...what better way than to get my November Counterfeit Kit together ON TIME!  I admit, I did it in a different order this month; I hopped along their blog hop THEN I put my kit together instead of the other way around...that way, I can't go back and say "I should added this or that!" And,  IT IS XtraLARGE THIS MONTH!
This month's inspiration comes from the super talented and oh so gracious Jenni Bowlin (I got to meet her IRL for a class and she was amazing!) and ALL  her October kits/add ons...there were a lot to chose from and since I thought that last month's inspo kit was sparse, I chose a coupla them and combined em!!!...don't judge, I am trying to use my stash:

HER KITs:
I knew I didn't have the papers AT ALL, so I started with the tag inspo in the upper left and used some Crate Paper as my starting point.  I used the colors more as my base and added 2 of each color so I would have some variety...added some JB papers in there for good measure since we are counterfeiting her!

More of her papers:

MINE:
 I pulled out my Glitz multipack and most of these papers were in there*SCORE!*
CARDSTOCK AND PAPER PACKS JUST IN CASE
The embellishments gave me a bit of a problem so I just pulled vintage type ephermera that spoke to me.... pie chart I downloaded from STUDENT HANDOUTS.COM 
HERS:


my own "ADD ON"mega kit as I found rediscovered treasures in bags and envelopes! I didn't have any  printed feathers and leaves so I made &  handcut my own :):) courtesy of tutorials at Pinterest!
**and oh, the cool owl and bunny postcards came in a little pack from Ikea!! Deer/ tree Owl printable courtey of THE Caroline Johansson * super cute!
 I know my kit is huge this time, something I've never done, but I was inspired by the vintagey autumn feel, the owls and the metallics so I went all KAAAA*RAAZEEE.....



thanks for looking all the way to the end! Cross the fingers that the mojo equals the size of the kit!!
