October Counterfeit Kit

I went back and forth on the October Counterfeit Kit this month.  Although I liked the inspiration kit by http://www.gossamerblue.com, I was really in the mood for something with a Halloween theme.  It seems like very few kit clubs are offering Halloween kits anymore.  I ended up buying the October Afternoon Witch Hazel line from Two Peas because all of their Halloween items were on sale for 25% off.  That satisfied my need/want for holiday themed papers, and so I was able to finish putting together this kit without obsessing about it too much.

Inspiration kit (Gossamer Blue September, 2012):

I had a few sheets of paper from the inspiration kit, and did use those.  I also included more pages from October Afternoon Woodland park collection, because lately I just can't seem to get enough of October Afternoon, despite all the controversy over their never meeting their release deadlines.  I still think they are one of the best on the market.  In fact, I included an old, old page from another OA line from 2007 in this kit, and I bet you can't even tell which one!!  I threw in a few other assorted sheets of paper and some cute embellies to finish it off.  I quite like how it turned out!

A little layout

It's been so long since I posted anything, so today I will do multiple posts in an effort to catch up with the blogging world!

Here is one little layout I made from all those pre-made pages I did with the perfect collection class, using my August Counterfeit Kit.  The photos are from our vacation this summer, where my hubby participated in half of a 50 mile mountain bike ride.  It turned out to be such an ordeal for him.  He finished his leg, and we were all really proud of him!
