Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop!

Hello! Welcome to my post for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop! You should have come from Glinda's Blog. If not, be sure to head over the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog for all the details on the hop and to get the entire list of blogs participating today. All of the projects along the blog hop today are showing off interpretations of the Scraps of Darkness sketch, which is the same place the kit for February was the Counterfeit Kit Challenge's inspiration for shopping our stash of supplies to make similar kits.

The sketch we went off of was the following:



And here's my take:



This marks the second project I have made with my February counterfeit kit. But even so, I found once again that having my supplies in a kit made for a fun challenge as I was limited in what I could use and it made me stretch my stash of supplies. Elements such as the flowers, heart brads and the papers have been in my stash for quite some time. And with already having it in a kit of papers that I felt went together, it was easy to use multiple patterns all together! (Look, no plain cardstock on this layout!)

The layout is about my sweet husband just from this past Valentine's Day. He made me yummy homemade pizza with all red toppings for dinner that night. It was a welcome surprise to come home to as I had class late that night. I love that we're able to have a little fun on Valentine's Day and really, every day. That's what I wanted to capture with this layout.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hoppers. You're next stop is Margie.

Thanks for stopping by!
