Happy Monday everyone! Hope that you all have a great week!

Today I want to share a new Challenge Site that I found while googling (don't you just love this word???)

It's called Counterfeit Kit Challenge and as you might have guessed from the title, they are a challenge site who 'couterfeits' designer kit clubs by gathering materials from your stash. So, I thought I would give it a go this month and see how challenging it would be. Wel, they chose a really cool kit by Jenni Bowlin from last month. Here it is:

I think the kit is beautiful but not my style or colors at all but I still wanted to give it a go. I decided to just make a page kit (enough for one layout) and chose specific colors that I thought I could work with as my inspiration for my kit. I chose red/yellow/black and of course I immediately thought-DISNEY!

Here's my kit:

Supplies: Colorbook & DCWV cardstock; Sandylion pattern paper; floss; handmade Mickey, black Mickey icons, Disney bingo card, journaling strips, and flowers (using my Pazzles).

I handmade the Mickey by looking for a picture in google, printing it on semi glossy photo paper and cuting it out using a tiny pair of scissors. It's cheaper than buying the stickers. I designed the Disney bingo card and the journaling strips on photoshop. The yellow flowers mimic the ones in the kit but are all also handmade by me using the Pazzles. I didn't add any letters here because I cut out my own title with my Pazzles so I figured I'd do that with one of the cardstocks that I have here in my kit.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my kit! Cant wait to work with it!
