October Counterfeit Kit

It's that time again! Time for the Master Forger's blog hop to reveal our kits! This month, we were inspired by the stunning September kit from Gossamer Blue Kit Club:
My itchy fingers really wanted to just buy it, but I have so much stash, I decided to see what I could pull together from that. Here is the kit I came up with:
 I have papers from My Minds Eye, Basic Grey, Echo Park, and Nikki Sivils. Embellishments
are from October Afternoon, American Crafts Thickers, Making Memories, Pretty Little Studio, Elle's Studio, and Prima (and of course  I had to put some washi tape in there!).
My Add-On Kit:

 More Thickers, October Afternoon, some vintage mailing labels for journaling, and some stamps.
I had my kit all together, and then Jessica Sprague put some of the Everyday Eclectic digitals on sale this past Wednesday, so I decided it was fate and added them into my kit:

I LOVE this collection, so I am sure I will get a lot of use out of the digi kit-my favorite part of digital scrapbook elements is the ability to print them over and over!

I already made one page with my kit, inspired by this week's Glitter Girl episode:
I used Tea Dye and Frayed Burlap Distress inks to really "muddy it up", and the background pp is the B-side of the Basic Grey blue floral print from my kit. I die cut the cameras and "Memories" word jumble with my Cricut, using the Graphically Speaking and Cricut Sampler Cartridges. I used the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo border punch, lots of digital papers and embellishments from my digital kits, a Tin Pin from the OA set, backed with a small scalloped circle punch by Martha Stewart, and the journaling spot is a piece of patterned cardstock from the 5&Dime pad that I trimmed down.
