October Counterfeit Kit

Can you believe that it's October already? I can't! But I am so happy for fall-I truly love the change of seasons! And fall means cooler weather, sweaters, colorful leaves, back to school for the kiddos, and Halloween. With 4 kids, how can I not love all of that? Anyhow, back to the kit!

This month, Beth and Meridy chose these kits from Little Red Scrapbook for our inspiration:
