It is going to be a great month here at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge! We have a lot planned, so grab a coffee and let's jump right in!
We have a great Event planned that is just around the corner! I hope you will join us for a National Scrapbook Weekend full of inspiration and prizes!
I know you are eager to get started with that, but you will need to be patient for a couple of more days! While you are waiting, let's pull together a kit to use for the rest of the month (Our Event will be kit free so we can have more freedom with what we create.)
Our kits this month will be inspired by a great selection of kits from PAPER CAMELLIA.
Then we have the Add On Kit
And the Every Day Life Add On Kit
Whew! That is a lot of inspiration!!
Here to help us with all of the madness we have going on this month is Laura (Beeds, Buttons and Birds)
My name is Laura and I’m from Sussex, UK. I turn 29 at the end of this month. At 14 I was diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and I have been mainly housebound since then. My current health situation is poor and I sleep more than I am awake. I'm much more of a list maker than a writer so here are a few lists about me…
Who Am I?
Daughter, Sister, Auntie, Big Cousin, artist, mess maker!
My Creative Side
Crafter, scrapbooker, painter, part-time beader, Crafty Ribbons DT member, photographer
Nature lover, bird watcher, Liverpool FC supporter, tennis fan, nail painter, arctophile, listener of boybands
To Sum Me Up
Dreamer, positive attitude, hugely grateful for this GD opportunity.
Let's get hopping and so you can get a jump on your kit! Here is the list of stops on our hop...make sure you say hello on each stop! See you soon!

And since we are doing something super special for the 3rd/4th...I would like to let you know our 1st May Challenge today (usually posted on the 4th):
and because you KNOW I won't let you go it alone without some inspiration:
Now, how can YOU participate? Go to the sidebar and use Mr. LINKY to link us to YOUR kit or project using your kit so we can leave you some love! We will make a brand new Mr. Linky for each month, so get your blog posts linked ASAP!
To make Mr. Linky a little easier for us to use, please type your name and then a description of what you are linking (ie: kit, mini challenge, ect…).
We also have a Flicker group, if you don't have a blog, but would like to share your creativity with us! CKC Blog Flicker Group
We also have a new twist on our Follower Blog Hop for this year! I hope you like it!
End of the Month Blog Hop:
On the 24th of each month we offer a blog hop opportunity to all of our followers! A chance for you to show off a special project made with your counterfeit kit for that month.
Here is how it will work:
Your Blog Hop Project may be from any of the 3 challenges we offer throughout the month.
Your project must be something new that you have not shown before and only post for the hop.
To be a part of our blog hop:
1. E-mail us your name/blog address/promise to participate at firstname.lastname@example.org BY THE 18th! (No late requests will be able to join this time due to the work it takes for us to get it put together.)
2. You will receive an e-mail from us by the 20th with a list of the hop participants.
3. You will need to schedule your own blog post showing your project based on this challenge and links to the person after you in the hop.
4. All Blog Hop posts will need to be scheduled to go live on the 24th at 12:00 A.M. Mountain Standard Time (Arizona)
