I've been having some scrappy fun

playing along with the challenges at Counterfeit kits.

I've had so much fun putting the main kit together that I decided to do up a smaller one for the CHA bonus challenge.

Here is the paper pack that I have chosen.

I am loving the chalk board effect that is out lately and these embellies and frames are great too.

Here is the kit I put together to work with.

I have added in my kit an assortment of some of my favorite Purple Onion stamps, white letters and rubons to make my own embellies.

I had fun playing around with the stamps, white paint and rubons and made up my own frame to use on a page in my Cradle mountain mini album that fits in with the chalkboard challenge.

As my Cradle mountain mini album is black based I am sure to use more of my goodies from this kit to create a heap more pages in it.

Another challenge that they have this month is to finish of an unfinshed project. When I make cards I like to do up a set of three seeing as I get three card bases from one sheet of cardstock and while I was on holidays in Tassie with Mandy and during our stay at Cradle mountain I started but never got round to finishing the set as my mojo wasn't happening. It just so happened that I had included some of the materials that I had planned on using on all three cards in the main kit that I finished of my card set.

Here is the unfinished set.( Sorry for the bad photo. Was taken at night time.)

When I usually create my card sets I try and make them similar but not this time I decided to do three different cards and even left one without a greeting so that I can add it on later when I need a card for a certain reason.

Card 1

Card 2

Card 3

Sorry for the long post guys. As always thanks for popping in, any comments and happy creating.
