October Counterfeit Kit Challenge Reveal Blog Hop

 Hello and Welcome to the October Counterfeit Kit Club Challenge Blog Hop and I am the host this month so I had a blast searching the internet for the perfect kit, one that would challenge me, one that I loved and one that would be fun to pull together from my kit. Which lead me to find the Hip Kit Club kit for May 2021. Colour and fun in one lovely bundle. 

As you are here on my blog hopefully you found your way from Tina's Blog. I will post a master list at the bottom of this post so you can journey on your way to Cindy's Blog (who is next on the list) or if you found your way here accidentally then start at the top of the master list and work your way through the great reveals.

Here is the Hip Kit Club kit for May. It is lovely - what caught my attention to this kit is that colourful world map pattern paper in the center, I see it an think of all my travel layouts and I must admit I know that I had it in my stash but had not used it yet.... so felt like I was winning before I even started to pull my kit. :) 

So on to my kit..... after pulling the colourful world map from my stash I used it as inspiration to have the colours of the kit in hand and refer too. 

I pulled my papers first looking for soft rainbow colours. When pulling my papers I realised that I actually had more of the patterned papers that are in the Hit Kit Club kit than I knew, it must e why I was attracted to this kit so much, it is along the lines of what I am usually drawn to and use to scrap. Having the same papers as is in the kit made it easy to put my papers together, I just had to add a few florals, some blues in light and dark, a pink pattern and rainbows to the group.

My embellishments were next; labels, stickers, gold frames, colourful titles and enamel dots and hearts all called my name and I felt worked perfectly to compliment the original kit.  A few close ups below to see the full range of what I added.

I really love how my kit has come together this month and am looking forward to using it and seeing what you all come up with. We've got another full month of fun for you, so make sure you pop back in throughout October for challenges and inspiration.  Here is what the month will look like:

You managed to pull lots of the original into your kit and boost it with a lot of extra goodies. Have fun playing!
