May's Counterfeit Kit!

I have been having so much fun pulling things for this kit!  I really like the direction I was able to take with it!

My camera is not working, so I took these pics with my phone, which is getting ready to be finished as well.  Sigh.  So excuse the not great photos. 

Here is my overall kit:

I did not have any bicycle paper that would work, so I went with a camera theme instead.  I LOVE the woodgrain paper and the colors of cardstock I pulled!  I think I can manage some guy and girl stuff with this kit!

I am going to use some blank Momenta stickers and print my own alphas.  I also made my own washi tape, since I didn't have any that would work.

Butterflies already punched from my scraps.  That was easy!

The frames were easily made with my Cricut and I had fun making the note cards to journal on!

I have tons of fun brads, so I added some of those...and a few stamps (managed to sneak a bike in anyway).

I am ready to go with this kit!  I will admit, that I have saved about 3 previous kits from this year.  I love them too much to break them down yet.  I have so much to play with!

Bethany    **You are Here**

I am excited to issue you my own challenge today! 

Paper Only Challenge!  For your project, you may only use two things...paper and adhesive! 

Now get that panicked look off of your face! You can totally do this!  There are SO many embellishments and things that you can make out of paper.  It will take a bit of time, but think of how proud you will be when you finish!

Here is a great site that inspired me!
Turn Your Scraps into Sunbursts

And here are the projects I put together based on their tutorial!
**It was a bit time consuming, but now that I have the templates, it will be easy to put together again.  In fact, I have plans to do one for my daughter's crazy hair day photos!  And yes.  Yes I am proud!  LOL

Have an excellent weekend of creating!  Don't forget to show us what you make by commenting on the National Scrapbook Day blog post on Counterfeit Kit Challenge!
