It's October?? Or should I say, It's October!!

Where is time going??  Slow up 2016!  Well, it's October, I've been sick all week, and it's been raining for days so, what's a girl to do??  Get outta bed, drink lots of tea, do some chores (mom's don't REALLY get time off) and put a Counterfeit Kit (CKCB) together of course!
This month's CKCB kit inspiration comes from Pink Fresh Studio and their August reveal of their  "Indigo Hills" kit.

 I think I was inspired with the graphic style prints and the colors:  subdued pink mixed with the goldenrod and the navy.  So, I knew that my March (no judgement, sometimes I hold em for a little bit lol) Hell Yeah Clique Kit had some similar colors so I 1/2 way cheated and pulled it out:
 A SIDES:
B SIDES:

I then looked at some of their embellishments and made my own small embellishment pack, focusing on journaling spots, small words, gold embellishments and misc die cuts.

I really loved their mixed  media looking papers and since the kit is kind of contemporary, I knew I didn't have any of those kinds of papers in my stash. So, for the first time, I broke out the acrylic paints and "counterfeited" my own papers!
THEIRS:
MINE: (I'm not sure why my colors are all crazy, my pink looks orange but trust me, it's pink)

and then THEIRS: I just liked the blue splatters
MINE:

So there ya go!  I did forget to add my washi tape in here but I'll do it later! I'm hoping to get about 6 layouts done and it'll probably happen since for once, I'm on time and made my kit on the first day!

So glad that you're joining us this month! You did a wonderful job making your own versions of some of the inspiration papers. I have some of those same Clique Kit papers and never thought to match them to this inspiration. Looking forward to seeing what you create this month!

Well you more than made up for the "cheat" by doing the forgeries. I think you've made a very cohesive kit. Enjoy it, Kate.
