That's why the first challenge this month at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog is so great: dig out some un-loved supplies or tools and give them an airing.
My corner rounder is one of my Top Ten Tools, and certainly not one I would want to manage without, even though it hasn't had an airing for ages. So I gave it a bit of a work-out on this page with ancient photos from 2004. The background cardstock didn't come from my September Counterfeit Kit - it came from a "bargain" grab-bag of mixed green Bazzill - and was, I thought, almost unusably bright! Luckily it toned with the peppermint greens in my kit's patterned papers and there were plenty of photos to help cover it up.

Child No.3 remembered the day the photos were taken, hotly protesting that there was no intentional sabotage, just high spirits!
What she does remember is running full pelt into a tree branch and grazing her forehead.
"Look, I still have the scar!" she said.
I looked; perhaps I need new glasses?
Wait! Yes I can see it: the graze and lumpy forehead are visible in the one photo where she was prepared to smile at the camera!
Am I mean to call that Karma?! ;o)
