September 2016 Counterfeit Kit Reveal Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to this month’s Counterfeit Kit Challenge inspiration kit reveal hop. 
Start: Master Forger Margie chose Felicity Jane’s August kit called Happy Day as our inspiration.

Style: I love the various shades of pink, peach and coral included here.  And having been a Felicity Jane subscriber in the past, I loved their emphasis on black and white too.

Peachy Keen Day Papers
I started by finding a couple of peachy florals on which to base my kit; three lines from We R Memory Keepers fit the bill – Farmers Market, Chalkboard and Love Notes.  And then I filled in around them with black and white from Felicity Jane and some more sherbet tones from Jillibean Soup.

  2. LOVE your take on the inspiration this month Susanne! In fact, I'd love to have your kit show up at my door as well! I love the black & white pieces you added and the trims, sequins and washi you included really capture the feminine feel of the inspiration.
