Pretty In Pink!


Welcome to October's kit counterfeiting with the Counterfeit kit Challenge Blog.  This month our Counterfeit Queen Laura chose the kit-to-copy which was the Vintage Floral Kit from Hey Little Magpie in the UK.  Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your POV) the kit proved very popular and is already sold out, but that doesn't stop us from creating our own ... in fact it's what we counterfeiters do best!  Hopefully you've already visited Laura and Julene so you'll know that the original kit looked like this:

Hey Little Magpie Vintage Floral Kit - Oct K2C

And here's my take on it - concentrating on the pinks (shock horror) and the greys with a nod to the dots, delicate florals, geometric shapes and stickers:

Jimjams - Oct 2014 Counterfeit Kit - trims
It's quite a small kit, but my scrappy time is limited this month so it should be easy to use it all up ... and there's only so much pink I'm willing to use LOL! Now let's see whether Lesley has struggled to include pink or not ... she's next on our hop this month (the complete list is published here on the CKCB).  Happy hopping!

Such a nice clean kit, Jemma - I wish you'd put that together for me - hey we could do a kit swap one month? And PINK!!! WOA there girl, steady on - no really I love it and I don't think there is any pink in mine!

I like your choices for your kit it was nice to see something other than florals and not so much pink too.

Looks like this kit will suit both pages for the male and female population in your life - the geometrics bring a nice clean and simple look. I like that ruler ...
