Counterfeit Kit Challenge

I have been anxiously awaiting the 5th. I followed a link from Crystal's blog and found the most incredible blog. Each month they choose one of the kit clubs out there to forge. You then pull things from your stash to create your own version of the kit. I decided this was the perfect challenge for me since I have tons of stash and need to become more productive. This month there is actually one main kit and four optional add on kits to copy. I didn't realize it would take me so long to create the kits. I spent a little over an hour this morning and creatred my version of the main kit and have about half of the stuff pulled for two of the add on kits. It took me a little longer, because I had a stack of prints sitting on the counter that I want to get scrapped. The butterflies and bees of the kit didn't seem right for the pics I have picked out, so I changed the color scheme up and got to pulling papers for the kit. I am excited and ready to start working. I will take pics of what I have pulled together as soon as I finish the add ons. I think I am only pulling for two of the add ons and will only pull the other two if I am getting enough made with what I have in this kit. If you haven't checked out this great site do so immediately. I don't have the blinkie on here yet, because I haven't quite figured out how to do it yet. You know I am new to this whole blog thing. I will have it figured out before the weekend is over.

It's actually quite exciting to be waiting for the 'reveal', isn't it? Just how I imagine it to be when you're in a real kit club. Glad you're inspired to shop your stash, your kits look great!
