Chalk It Up!

Welcome to another month of kit counterfeiting with the Counterfeit kit Challenge Blog.  This month we have Jane as our guest designer and you should have reached me via Angela if you've followed the hop from the start.  We're all making our own versions of Noel Mignon's jam-packed Balboa Kit

I loved the teal in the kit and the neon rainbow against black of the Hazel & Ruby supplies so I started there ... with some counterfeiting*.

I then found some more black and bright stash and built this month's kit including some seriously hoarded supplies ... {some from as far back as 2005}!

Fun, fun, fun! And neon is so on trend right now. Like the addition of brads and paperclips.

Tina Campbell said...

Wow that is a super cute kit to work with, love seeing the diversity in the kits yours just pops with the different color elements and all those little bits and pieces

Sounds like you are excited about your kit this month, and rightly so, but I warn you. I think I beat you for oldest product this month, lol - 2003 :~D

Laura said...

Ooh, so colourful :)

that kit is just you. I had that big colourful circle in my kit last month (but at 8 X 8) - I'll be posting the page using it later if I can get PD off the main computer).
Looking forward to seeing what you create this month.

Sandra said...

The brighter the better, I say. And oh boy are you going to create some amazing projects with it

Lizzie said...

Oh how bright and happy! Can't wait to see what you put together with this little lot - it will be rainbow-bright!

Lisa said...

I love those brights against the black. I can't seem to get on with that combination myself but I love seeing what others do with it. And I spy lots and lots of eyelets and
D brad which I'll be hoping to get some ideas on how you're using the I threw all y eyelets out but the mini brads? I have hundreds of them!

So cheerful...a lovely selection

Melissa said...

I really like your kit, especially those colorful little embellishments!

alexa said...

I have some of these papers too! (Blushes ...). You are going to get them used up though in this really vibrant and striking selection. Mine are going to be languishing till 2025 :).
