September 2018-Challenge #1-Color Challenge

Good Morning! September is all about color in the fall flowers, in the fall leaves and in the harvest too.
There are flowers enough in the summertime,  
More flowers than I can remember—  
But none with the purple, gold, and red 
That dyes the flowers of September! 
 —Mary Howitt (1799-1888)

It was cool to find this quote and this quote is what inspired the 1st challenge of the month. It is a Color challenge use Purple, Gold and Red on your project.

Our Guest Forger Janet of RTS scrapbooking was up for the challenge and created a fun layout:
Hi Everyone! Janet here again taking on the Counterfeit Kit challenge of incorporating
purple, red and gold on a layout. What fun! I used gold in my Thicker title as well as a
sprinkling of gold dots in my clusters.
My use of purple can be found in my stamped leaves and my vertical subtitle.

I broke out my Fiskars crimper (remember that tool?) and created a red scalloped 'crimped' edge along with red photo corners all placed on top of a thin red background. It was great pairing and playing with these colors for this challenge! 
You can view a Start to Finish process video of my layout at RTS Scrapbooking.  
Hop over, sit a spell and let's Record the Story! 

Master Forger Tina used that fun plaid paper in her kit to create this fun layout:

Master Forger Lori took on the challenge to create a layout showing off some of the beautiful colors of the fall season. You can read more about it on her blog here.
