Counterfeit Kit challenge -October

I am so pleased to be back into paper and things scrapping again, and to be joining in with the Counterfeit Kit challenge for this month. I so enjoyed putting this kit together and it feels like a new kit when placed all in a box of its own. I have stopped stroking the kit and now using it after all that is the object of the game.
here is my first page
Autumn in the lane
I just used the scraps of papers and was economical with the leafy ribbon. I did add the black paper to the kit as I needed to mat the photos to make them stand out a bit more.
The flowers I cut out of the patterned paper I further cut to raise the inside petals then mounted them on 3D foam pads
The title is cut on Robo using a lovely font, so perfect for Autumn, called RCMP which you can download for free here
The swirls at the side are a dingbat font Ornamental Scrolls and Flourishes printed onto Safmat a self-adhesive printing film by Letraset
I hope that you like my first page from the kit

It's a beautiful page - all the touches you've added are wonderful - I can't decide on a favorite because I like them all.

gorgeous photos (I adore this time of year!) and I love the way you've done the title on the leaves - that is really sweet! The flowers are also lovely and I really like the way you cut them to add dimension. I need to remember that trick. Great job!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
