Here's my take on the Counterfeit Kit Club Challenge for June:
The amazing thing about putting your own scrapbooking stash into a kit and photographing it is that it gives your old stuff the illusion of being new stuff and I'm always amazed to discover all the cute stuff I already own. It sort of makes me thing we (as in someone else - not me) should start the counterfeit fashion club so we could repurpose our old clothes and have "new" outfits - if anyone runs with this let me know because I'll be so on board with that. Ok, back to scrapbooking:
The BEST thing about the Counterfeit Kit Club Challenge is that I actually took my kit out of my scrapbooking room and put it on my cute little Ikea Cart and rolled it out into the dining room / family room (our entire first floor is an open floor plan so its like one gigantic room) so I could do scrapbooking while we watched the catastrophe of a show "The Bachelorette" - it is so horrible, but somehow we are still watching. So here's what my set up looked like (and yes that is a princess tent on the left - and no, that's not the only tent we have in the living room - we also have a boy's tent set up - it's almost summer after all) :
Ok so the other best part of having a scrapbooking kit, bringing it out to the family room and not letting myself go back to the scrapbooking room for more stuff ? I got 4 pages done in 2 hours! I'll post those tomorow.
Where do you scrapbook? Do you get more done at home or at a crop? I have a scrapbooking room that my 7 year old daughter and the rest of the family have full access to; but lately I've been wanting to come out of the room and back into the family space.
