October Counterfeit Kit Challenge

It's October, and that's time to get a cold!  No, no, wait....that's not it.  I mean, I got the cold, but that's not the big excitement.  October means I'm officially a Master Forger!  And it's time to reveal our Counterfeit Kits for the month.

The inspiration kit is from Little Red Scrapbook, September 2010:

And here is my kit for the month:

Top Left: My full kit with some extra stickers to use this month.

Top Right: The papers are a hodge podge of Cosmo Cricket, GCD Studios, MME, DCWV and Basic Grey.

Bottom Left: In place of the Thickers in the original kit, I counterfeited my own.  I'll show you how I did it and use my sample word later this week. 
Bottom Right: I cut some tag shapes to match the ones in the kit, but I haven't decided how to decorate them yet.  The round blobs to the right are an experiment.  The googlie eyes are not for Halloween :).  I don't have any of those pretty pearls from Queen and Co. in the inspiration kit, so I'm working on a counterfeit.  I'll let you know how the experiments work out.


As I tried to put together my original kit, I couldn't find any scallop-edged papers to use in place of the piece in the inspiration kit.  What I did find was a bright purple floral paper, and that inspired me to put together this purple-themed add on kit:

All the papers are SEI and American Crafts.  I threw in some extra stickers (probably to alter) and some purple flowers. 

Hope you are inspired to play along with a kit of your own!
