Counterfeit Kit August '17

Oh. My. Goodness. I cannot believe how long it's been since I blogged here! I have been minimally creative in the past few months, but most of what I make, I just snap a photo and post to instagram. Just easier, I guess. Anyway, it's about time I get into some challenges again, otherwise another year will pass by and I'll be even more behind, ack!

I always enjoy playing along with the folks over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge, so what better way to get back into the swing of things than by making myself a new kit for August? I know, I know, August is almost over, I am super late to the party, but I am convinced that I can make something with this kit in the next nine days! I've even got ideas in mind, if you can believe it, haha! So, without further ado, here is the kit that the CKC team has posted as inspiration:

Huh. It's the Gossamer Blue Main Kit from July '17, and my first thought was, there is a distinct lack of pink going on here! But no worries, I can work with this! I decided to stick with the main colours, and I even managed to do some counterfeiting as I was putting my kit together. Here's a portion of what I came up with:

Not the greatest image, I admit, but what I've put together has quite a bit of potential, what with the inks and stamps I've got available to me. I'm picturing a couple of project life spreads (not sure if you can tell from the image but there are some PL journaling cards there amongst the bits and pieces) and a mini album - the colours are going to work perfectly with the photos I took on my first ever hiking trip with Ailis.

I've also got some matching cardstock, tone-on-tone papers, and various die cuts, but the longer I take to put this post together, the less scrappy time I have. Better get to it before I procrastinate much more, am I right? Wish me luck, kids!
