CHA Kit - Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog

I was inspired by Trisha for the CHA Bonus Challenge Kit!  She made up an amazing kit.  Then made some amazing projects with the kit.  This is a must see!  Just click the link above!

YAY!  This kit made it in with what I would call small!  I got through with the kit the day the bonus was announced.  Except I let it sit overnight.  As I looked at the kit I realized I needed two things.  A sheet of paper with pink...Done.  Then I needed the right type of fabric for the kit.  A few dozen clicks later and the right fabric is on the journey to my house!  I have sat for two months wanting Anna Griffin's paper Barn Wood.



I finally ordered it a two weeks ago from ACOT and I have just the photo for this paper.  I included everything that is under a year old.  I just have too much paper to buy anything new....it's the one thing that shuts me down from buying.  So here's the smaller kit I'll work with on other photos then the courthouses!


I wanted pieces of fabric in the kit....but didn't have the colors I wanted.  So I ordered some two days ago.  When it arrives I'll replace the correct colors with the one in this kit....or may just add to the kit.

Honestly I like this kit better then the first!  But I have different uses for each.

Then on CKCB Blog today is Challenge #1!  Fits me for both kits.  It is all about Unfinished Projects.  I'll start with the CHA Bonus Kit.  I have the cutest picture of Lynn and James on their bikes or big wheels that I have been wanting to scrap for months.  That's challenge #1.  The next project will take albums upon albums to get done.  Years ago I found Texas Courthouses on the web.  I had always loved the Hill County Courthouse.  Gorgeous!  I cried when it burned but the replica stands in it's place.  I found this whole world opened up when I went through the Texas Courthouse site.  Now there are many more sites dedicated to our state's County Courthouses.  I have since 2007 taken photos of 16 of the 254 county courthouses in our state.  I started to just put them in the family albums.  Now I want them in albums of their own along with some of the other notable landmarks around the state.  I have a photo of me the first time I visited the Alamo!  That will go in these scrapbooks.  Some counties I have checks by that very short list to return and photo again because of renovations at the time I photographed them.  It's a walk through history of our state and the people who live in each county!  I have a very short doable bucket list and this sits at the very top to photograph each courthouse.  Total square miles of our state:  268,601 square miles.  That is a lot of traveling.  No end date in site for this project!  Of course I had to get a WRMK Buttercup (Yellow Album) for the Yellow Rose of Texas although our state flower is of course the one and only Bluebonnet!  Plenty of those photos to go in this scrapbook!

He he....these are only two unfinished projects!  I have a boat load of projects for Christmas this year to fit in as well as my Mother's Cruise album and her horse album!  Best get started...

Until next time!

I couldn't find your link but I think your kit is FAB! You have me so intrigued with your courthouse project - here in the Midwest we have so many with wonderful details inside & out. I am inspired to take some photos! Can't wait to see your pages.
