A new year and trying something new



I read about this from a post on 2Peas and thought it was just a great idea. It's called the Counterfeit Kit Challenge. The premise is you use as inspiration a kit club's kit for that month and pick supplies from your stash to make your own kit. Brilliant I say! So for January the inspiration is from Dec. JBS's kit. I do love her products, but didn't have the colors from her kit but pulled from my stash to come up with this. I'm lovin' it and can't wait to start making some layouts.
Since this is my year for saving money, I plan on using this strategy for not buying any new product (only adhesive if needed).
I thought too I would like to incorporate some of the many stamps I have, so each month I will be pulling from my stamp stash. The Maya Road doily stamp & stamp border pretty much fit the bill for this kit.
Here's the scoop on joining in: http://counterfeitkitchallenge.blogspot.com/
I will be back with some layouts soon.
