January Counterfeit Kit Challenge

It's time to get my kit on!!! My counterfeit kit that is. The Counterfeit Kit Challenge is up and running with their January challenge. This month we are counterfeiting  Cocoa  Daisy.   You can see the kits here.http://counterfeitkitchallenge.blogspot.com/2012/01/january-2012-kit-reveal.html

I love participating in this challenge. I get to create beautiful kits from shopping within my own stash and I get fab tutorials and idea links every month.

At first, nothing called out to me as I tried to chose which of the 4 Cocoa Daisy kits to copy...then I saw the patterned paper with the chair motif. As soon as I spied it, I wanted to create a kit for layouts of all the remodelling we did on our house and the new furniture we purchased in 2011.  We still have to add little decorative accents in the rooms to help pull it all together but that is the plan for 2012!

Here is my take on the Cocoa Daisy kits...I have called it "Come on in and relax". I chose the browns and greyish aqua papers as those are the colours of my rooms.  I have added a rusty red page as I want to accessorize our living/dining room with aqua and red.  Dh hates red so I figure I will show him how great red will look via my layouts! I think I will call it rust though, instead of red...to help get him on board!!!

I like that your kit is planned around your home decor. I love red, so I hope you can talk him into going with it.

This is such a fabulous idea! I love the idea of recording your decorating project with a coordinated kit! Only a scrapbooker would be so coordinated in her thinking :-)

Love these colours and patterns - and rust is an excellent idea - totally different from red ;)

Great job! It's a great idea to start with pictures/themes in mind - makes the kit so much more useful!
