November 2016 Counterfeit Kit Challenge Reveal

Welcome to November! I am Kelly and I am excited to be sharing this month's inspiration kit with you. I knew I wanted a kit with a fall theme to force me to dip into my stash of fall products, but with elements that could be adapted to other types of pages as well. I quickly fell in love with the October 2016 kit from Cocoa Daisy, City Park.

This collection is the perfect mix of autumn goodness and more neutral papers and embellishments that will allow for a variety of stories. The color scheme is a balance of lights and darks and the papers are a mix of cute fall patterns with more simple designs. I just love the unexpected pops of light blues throughout the kit!

From the Cocoa Daisy website: Combine the "go go" of city life with a relaxing bit of Autumn and you have our October scrapbook kit, City Park. We've used product lines from Fancy Pants, Pretty Little Studio, Shimelle, Crate Paper, and Echo Park, as well as plenty of Cocoa Daisy exclusives to create this vibrant Fall-inspired collection. Puffy alphabets, an entire package of versatile stickers, die cuts, enamel dots, a vellum sticker sheet, shipping tags, and a yard of trendy diamond ribbon are going to give you just what you need to capture your memories this month. And we had to include some artwork from Jaimee in the form of exclusive stamps because those trees were just too cute! We think you'll agree.

I hope you have fun creating your own kit from this fall-themed collection! 


I would like to welcome this month's Guest Designer, Dawn Winslow.

Hi!  My name is dawn and we live in a tiny town in SW Missouri nestled in between Springfield and Branson.  I am a coffee-drinking, gluten-free, nature-loving, Jesus girl!!  I am wife to my main man and love of my life, Dick. I have a son Dakota, two stepsons Eric and Chase, two adopted daughters Lauren and Arielle, and the most amazing grandson Skylar, EVEH!!!  I started scrapbooking about, well... many years ago. :)  It is so much more than a hobby to me.  It is memory keeping and honestly memory making.  I scrap it all, the good, the bad, the hard.  I believe it is part of our stories as we journey here, and I pray that the generations after us will glean lessons from our pages and know we loved, deep, through it all.  So thankful to be guest designer this month for this amazing blog.  It has been awhile, and I am pumped to be with y'all!!  Y'all are AMAZING!!   Blessings, dawn
