This month, you can choose to share any project you have made with your Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit which you have not shared on your blog yet. You project could be related to any of the three challenges or maybe just something you made with your kit. As a reminder, here are the three challenges this month:
I choose Challenge #2 to incorporate Zentangles on my page. I found an elephant zentangle and am using that for my card and layout. I colored one with colored pencils and the other with sharpies.

For the card I trimmed it down matted it onto some of the blue paper from my January Counterfeit Kit. She loves elephants so hopefully she will like the card.





For the layout I used the same elephant but colored it with colored pencils.  I trimmed a bit of the blue background paper, distressed the edges and used pieces I had left over from other project to make a place for the photo to go.  I added one of the clothespins I included in Counterfeit Kit and the tracing paper left over from another layout the put the elephant on it.



From here you will hop on over to Jemma at Just Jimjams blog to see what she has created with her January Counterfeit Kit.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the rest of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog hop.
