Warning: the photos in this post are very . . . . purple!
The obvious place to start with my Counterfeit Kit this month was always going to be with older photos from when I was first married. Not that I'm opposed to mixing older products with recent photos. But I definitely think older photos go with older products, especially in large doses! The following things also apply to our early married life: anything DIY, anything cheap and cheerful, anything bright, even to the point of clash.
Oh, and definitely purple. You know how you might wash a load of whites? Between the clothes from those cheap hippy-style clothes shops and the tie-dyed pants, I used to do a load of purples!

I never claimed to be a kit-only scrapper, did I? As well as using my kit. I've added the mini DIY letter stickers, doilies, mist, and buttons - and I think this was the first kit I didn't put a sheet of ledger paper in. Well, it's got one now!
And the next candidate? Well, the next photos in the album, as a matter of fact! When I realised they were going to face each other in the scrapbook, I thought I should use some of the same elements, although I did add a few extra papers as well.
From early '90s to early 00's, and I wanted to have a go at the latest challenge at Let's Scrap, to incorporate polaroid-style frames. I chose the LHS of this sketch here:
Now that I'm looking at this page on the screen, I'm thinking I might move that photo down a bit. Otherwise, I've got to say I've had a lot of fun releasing my Inner Purple People Eater.! Thanks so much for dropping by.
