January Counterfeit Kit

I'm so excited to be getting my Counterfeit Kit ready early in the month!  Let's hope I can kill this kit!!!

Here is the kit we're counterfeiting this month:
And here's what I managed to come up with:

Looks like my papers are a tad brighter than the originals, but I just had to add some new Bella Blvd. papers and stickers that I won from Scrapbooker's Paradise!  (They're the three on the top right.)  The top three on the left are Simple Stories, then the middle row has Echo Park and Studio Calico ledger paper, two pieces of vellum, a piece of Amy Tan (that's the one with all the frames) and some grey cardstock.  The bottom row has two pieces of paper I MADE!!!  The pink one I just painted some white lines freehand on, and the blue one was once plain white cardstock - I just inked and embossed some snowflakes, then brayered the whole thing with ink.  And finally, at the very bottom, another scrap of ledger paper and some pink glittery scraps.

Here's some of my embellishments:
 Let's see, speech bubbles seemed to be big in the original kit, so I pulled some cork shapes (new) and some die cuts (old, from another kit).  I've also got a cute stamp set from Close to My Heart that came with a mini album kit, and some leftover die cuts to go with.  Some Bella Blvd. stickers (also from that prize pack), Studio Calico flare buttons, an alpha stamp and star stamp set, heart pins (soooooooo old!), three mini clothespins, some doilies, gems, glittery buttons, washi, and ink.

The original kit had lots of stars, and since I didn't have any, I got busy cutting some with my Cameo:
And that's about it!  I'm really stoked to get busy and do some scrapping!  How 'bout you, are you counterfeiting this month?
