Sadly, this will be my last month as a Master of Forgery for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge! It's time for me to get a real job after sixteen years as a stay at home mom. I will definitely still participate in the challenges, if time permits!
This month's inspiration kits were by The Sweet Peach Crop Shop (September, 2010). I loved the soft blues of the main kit, but unfortunately don't have anything like it in my stash. I thought briefly about ordering some Sassafras Lass Indie Girl, but that's not really the point of this challenge. I was inspired by the Juicy Themed kit, which had a more bold vintage feeling to it.
I recently bought the Le Cirque line by Graphic 45. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use it. The paper is stunning, with beautiful vintage circus images and a dramatic color scheme. I thought I could do a lot with it because my kids are very active, and always seem to be doing something acrobatic. I combined some embellishments I thought would work with this themed kit. I have a ton of ideas floating around in my head, and can't wait to get working on it!
