Counterfeit Kit Challenge 1,000th Blog Post Contest

Hi and welcome. This blog post is for Counterfeit Kit Challenge's 1,000 blog post contest (long post) this contest consist of:
Contest Dates:  July 26th - August 9th
1.  Create a Counterfeit PAGE Kit of your own, based on a current kit (could be a kit club, digital kit or paper collection)
2.  Make up a challenge and create a project based on that challenge.
3.  Share both the inspiration kit & your kit, your challenge, and your project on your blog. E-mail us the link to
 So this is the kit that I found that I want to counterfeit:
A summer backyard scrapbook layout.
 It's from you can find it at the bottom of their page. the description is:
Everybody's backyard can be their own summer paradise!  In this kit you will
receive three printed papers (one is hand stickled), cardstock, pre cut photo
mats, die cut matted title, die cut chairs, swirl, punched lattice border, bling and

Here is my kit:
I stuck with the wood and the gold . Found a floral that is more of our garden. Used blue instead of green cause there is more green in the pictures I will be using :)
A closer pic:
 I pulled SU Rich Razzleberry ribbon in place of the green to match the Rasberry background paper.
The punch for the border strip, the rhinestones and the flowers that I will be placing along the border like they have in the kit that was a nice touch on the paper and since I don't have that kind of paper I'll be making my own.
I cut these on my cameo to be similar to what they have, the chairs are more like ours and instead of just the swirl I added the word Family too because that is our paradise :)
You'll have to stop back tomorrow to see the finished layout.

So for number 2:  Make up a challenge and create a project based on that challenge.
My challenge is a fun large title stamped with various stamps and at least 3 colors ink. 
I used last month's kit for the layout, since I did it last month:) (last week really right after the challenge was announced :) I've been seeing alot of the large titles and the subway art why not mix them together a bit
 I used black, red and brown inks. I used a variety of CTMH stamps to make the title
 Green chipboard star to match the green background pattern paper

The scallop stamped image was one I found in my stash from a swap I received. Popped that up for some dimension.
This was so cool to do, took a bit of time but was fun challenge to tackle! Thanks CKC

This Layout also works for the Challenged posted by Lasting Memories today that is so cool! #202 Heat Wave the colors are red, yellow, orange and green which is all over my layout :)

Stop back tomorrow and see what I did with that kit....
