A Little October Counterfeit Kit Fun!

It is my absolutely FAVORITE month of the year!  Fall is beginning...our big tree in our front yard will turn such pretty colors...nights come sooner (which means cozy evenings with a fire and candles lighting up different rooms) and Halloween.  We are not trick or treater at our house, but Halloween does mean passing out fun treats, taking the kids to pick their OWN stash of candy (might as well buy what you want instead of walking around for candy you might not like) and having an all out "spooky" movie night with the kids in the living room.  SO FUN!

To get you in the mood, we have headed over to CSI (Case file 365-9).  I really enjoy stepping out of my comfort zone from time to time for some more creative inspiration.  No rules or even pre-picked paper...just a great color scheme and ideas to pull my kit together.  Throw in some great topics with their testimony section and I am ready to roll!

Our Guest Designer Tina is here and ready for a brand new month!  Give her a big welcome and make sure you stop by HER BLOG to see what she has been up to lately.

Hi I am Tina. I am so excited to be here today. This is my 2nd time being Guest Designer here at Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog. The Kit Challenges each month are fun to take on :) 

I've been doing it for almost 2 years and love looking for things to work with for the challenge in my stash. I live in South Williamsport, PA. I am married to a wonderful man now 21 years between the 2 of us we have 8 kids, 17 Grandkids, 2 Greatgrandkid with a pair of twins and another on the way :) We are the owners to 1 fur-baby too, Buddy an Australian cattle dog (Blue Heelers) and has been part of our lives since 2004. I'm a mold ejection laborer working the night shift for Shop Vac

I started scrapbooking in 2007 when 2 coworkers/friends took me to my first crop, one of the girls said all I needed to bring was the pictures and anything special to go with them, she provided me with my first album and I had access to her supply of paper. I fell in love with the hobby that day and have been doing it since, that year for Christmas they gave me my first tote-bag kit that I still use when going to crops. I love to scrap in my Scrapcave (scraproom) it gives a chance to relax and enjoy the process of preserving memories. I scrap, make cards, smash and project life.

You can find me at Tina's Scrap Corner I look forward to meeting you all soon :)

These type of assignments are my FAVORITE!  All bets are off as the Master Forgers work their magic on their supplies to create kits that are very much their own.  After the hop your challenge is to use the inspiration to make something YOU love and use it up with us this month.

Guest Designer, Tina:

We would LOVE to have you participate!  Check out the How to play along with us tab at the top of the page to see how you can play along after you make your kit!  We have a month full of special challenges and ideas so we can get some creating done and get some supplies used up.

  7. Working my way back through all the posts - this month's kits were all so very different but the source inspiration was there through them all - wonderful!
