Challenge #2 - Decorative Doors

Knock knock
(who's there?)
(Avenue who?)
Avenue you knocked on this door before?

OK, not the best joke in the world but it leads me nicely onto

Challenge #2: Decorative Doors

I don't know about you but when I saw this prompt I just wanted to start singing
"Green Door" by Shakin' Stevens

Don't tell me that you haven't a clue what I'm talking about!
Who is Shakin' Stevens?

Let me help you out...

See what you've been missing!!!
That Ear Worm will be with you all day now (oops, sorry!)

So, onto the challenge...

Challenge #2: Decorative Doors

Head over to our

Pinterest Board

and get inspired by all of the beautiful doors that make people feel welcome to our homes.  
Whether they are architecturally beautiful
 or we dress them up for the holidays, we (and you) can find some great inspiration here!

Now let's see how our Master Forgers have "handled" the challenge...


Angela was inspired by this door to try something a bit different with her nesting diecuts. You can find out more on her blog.


Julene has stepped back to the 1920s with her layout.It is based on this door.


Lesley used this door for inspiration, can you see how?


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

If you take a peek at our side bar <<<<<<<<  you will see links to our Facebook and Pinterest, as well.  We hope to see you hanging out at ALL of those places.

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  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)
