November is one of my favorite months. I call it the "calm before the storm" ... as much as I love December and the whole Christmas season, the hussle and bussle of the holidays can be exhausting. Since we Canadians celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday in October, the month of November is usually a fairly quiet. For me, November is all about warm beverages and curling up with good books and weekend getaways to cozy B&B's in the middle of the woods.
This month, the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog is counterfeiting the fantastic October kits by Jenni Bowlin. If you've been following the reveal blog hop, my blog is the final stop on the hop and you should have arrived here after visiting Millisa. If you haven't done the full hop yet, you can kick things off over on Vikki's blog.
There were numerous kits to choose from, but the one that immediately caught my eye was this add-on ...
I had that leaf paper by Basic Grey and also had the blue sparkly Thickers by Maggie Holmes. I used those two items as a starting point and built the rest of my kit around that. Instead of oranges and reds seen in the original kit above, I decided to make my counterfeit version a little more "November friendly" and went with lots of blues and greys. I named my kit "London Fog" after one of my favorite warm beverages. (If you haven't tried a London Fog yet, you've gotta)
Here's a peek of what I came up with ....
You can view the full kit in my video below.
My goal for this month is to kill this kit - and I mean that in the nicest possible way, of course. :) I find I make a layout or two using my kit and then get distracted with newer goodies and my kits end up collecting dust. I'm going to be ambitious this month and aim for 5 layouts. Who's with me?!
