Counterfeit Kit Blog Hop

Welcome happy scrappers to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog hop. If you are following the hop you should have arrived from Missus Wokie's blog- if you not you might want to start at the beginning which is here at the Counterfeit kit site. I have had a blast doing this challenge and playing with my knock-off kit. I believe the Counterfeit Kit is better than a kit club one could subscribe to because you build it with the supplies you already have on hand; those things you obviously liked enough to individually pick out in a store.



Here's my take on this Month's Scrap of Darkness sketch.

Unforgettable Memories

This is my oldest son wearing a carnival clown costume in Plaza St. Marco, Venice Italy.

I am so happy I found this challenge. Thanks to this challenge I have completed six 8x8 pages in under a month. Here are a few of my other pages created with this kit:

Paw-fect Pal - My puppy and I posing


Clowning Around Venice - more pictures of DS1 from his photo shoot in Venice


God's Gift- my niece's Baptism


Bliss- My cousin Angie's wedding day


Thanks for taking a peek at the goodies I created.

Enjoy the blog hop Glinda is waiting for you to stop by. Click here for her blog and the next stop in the hop.
