The Counterfeit Kit Challenge reveal for September is the Birds of a Feather kit for August 2012. I gathered my papers and embellies in record time. As always, I am intrigued by the colour combos and pattern mixes as left to my own devises, I would never combine these products, yet here I have it all in my abundant stash. Excuse me while I take a moment to reflect on the acronym on the post-it, I keep beside the computer. S.E.L.E. (Stash Exceeds Life Expectancy)
Ok, i'm back. When I put the papers together, it brought to mind the brights and the darks of my pots of annuals that are getting tired here at the end of summer, yet still pushing out blossoms. To honour the beauty they have given of themselves since May, (pansies since April) I am calling this, my September CKC kit, At Season's End

That brings to mind a time when I was about 5 or 6 and I told my mom I wanted a beigey purple coat. She said there was no such colour. It was a long time before I learned that my imaginary colour had a name. There might be a layout on that.
In the add-on papers, there is a page of tickets and tokens. I will use tickets I got off etsy.
Stickers, Glitz, love games titles.
Replacing the kit's memorabilia pockets with journal cards I made a while back using bits and snips. I will aim to use 6 of these cards.
