October Counterfeit Kit

This month's inspiration kit come from Cocoa Daisy "5th & Main".  I've followed this blog for a couple of months without participating but I'm all in this month. 

My papers are really different from the kit. My three guy's tend to by paper packs for me so the majority of my papers are from them.  I didn't have a dark blue with the flowers or polka dots to pull inspiration from so I used the kit just for color inspiration.  For my kit I pulled  shades blue/dark blue papers for specific photos.  I kept the pink in the kit as I want to do a couple of layouts of both my of Grandma's and Mom.  I substituted tans and orange for the gold paper.  I rounded it out with a couple of single sheets of blues, teal, yellow and a couple of sheets of multi colors in the polka dot and banner paper.

I didn't include cardstock and vellum in this kit as I will pull it as I need it and may even add a transparency with my die cuts.
I also liked the Daily Special kit and have print and cut several of my label files to include while I'm scrapping.  I plan to "forge" the  4x6 Die cut cards with the Silhouette or Cricut. I also made a Polaroid file using my Silhouette and think I have one of the View Master so I will cut them as I need them. I'm also planning on using several of my dies - like the film strip die with the vellum or cardstock.
I keep my embellishments in jars by colors so I'll pull those as I need them.  I also thought I would pull out the stamps as I create the layouts. 
Since I've been scanning Mom and Dad's Photos I realize I just need to take the time to scrap my own.  I've found several that I didn't even know they had taken pictures of so it will be really cool when I include them in my guy's albums.  I also want to do a few blank pages for them to put their own photo's on.  Now to make the time to do a little scrapping.
Thanks for stopping by.
