Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Check out the new Counterfeit Kit Challenge by Bethany and Meridy: http://counterfeitkitchallenge.blogspot.com/. Each month, a new kit will be posted, and the challenge is to look through your stash for products to make a kit of your own. This month was a blast, and I had so much fun looking through all of my supplies to find just the right things to make up my kits.

Here is the inspiration kit, by Jenni Bowlin.
