[[ First things first - if you're doing the full Counterfeit blog hop (and you should) then chances are you landed here after visiting Sherri's blog. If you're not sure what this whole Counterfeit Kit thing is all about you can head over here to start from the beginning. ]]
This month, the team is using the Penny Arcade kits by Studio Calico as our inspiration.
Usually when I pull my counterfeit kit together I start with a product or two from the "real" kit that I already have in my stash. It gives me a good excuse to dig out products that I've forgotten about and put them to good use. I couldn't do that with the Penny Arcade kits, though, because I didn't have any of the products featured. Not a button, not a gold doily … nothing, nada. The Fortune Teller add-on kit featured bokeh patterned paper, a sheet with days of the week on it and woodgrain alphas. I had similar products in my stash (not identical, but close enough) so I pulled them out and began to build my kit. The end result was a counterfeit kit that looks absolutely nothing like the real kit … but that's okay. I'm in love with it anyway and can't wait to dig in. Ladies and gents, may I present Wishful Thinking …
Unfortunately I haven't got a video to share this month. Time just got away from me (that's what happens when you're in vacation mode) and I wasn't able to get my film edited and uploaded by the reveal deadline. Hopefully these photos have inspired you to go through your stash and find similar items to create your own version of the Fortune Teller kit.
Next up on our hop is Lesley G … head over to her blog to see her version of the kit & be sure to tell her I said hello :)
