My New Challenge

I have found a really fun blog. They call themselves Counterfeit Kit Challenge. Each month they choose a page kit from a company and recreate it from their stash. I love this idea. You get to shop from your own stash. No money required. I love the challenge of this.
This month they are using Burlaps and Butterflies's June kit. You can find it here. This kit is very flowery and girly. It's not me at all. I used it as inspiration only. I have the same elements in mine but with a camping theme. I'm dying to get started on the photos from my April vacation.

Here is my version of the kit:

Since I didn't have any thickers to add, I add two cricut cart instead. I will be using Mickey font and Lyrical Letters. I have also added Camping Critters, two types of ribbon, green raffia, brads and some fabric covered pins.

Here is a close up of the papers that I chose. I chose 10 patterned papers from my stash. I have two of each for a total of 20. 5 pieces of cardstock was not nearly enough for me. (I am a paper addict.) I picked out 5 colors from su and I added three pieces of each color.

I didn't have an coordinating phrase stickers so I used this fun sheet of phrases. I can simply cut them out and adhere them myself.

Vellum butterflies and flowers weren't going to work for my theme. I substituted chipboard stickers and some 3-dimensional stickers.

Here is my add on pack. They suggested making a summer add on pack. Since I have a bunch of beach photos to scrap from our April vacation, I thought these would work nicely. I used random paper from my stash, brad buddies, mudd puddles and mini sea shells.
