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!
