My take on the April Counterfeit Kit


Once we saw this kit...it was LOVE at first sight!  The colors are so much fun and there are some great homeade touches already in the kit!

Presenting....

A Little Birdie Told Me

By a new club:  Front Porch Kits!

This is the brain child of Tracy Pounds (of The Little Blue House) and Lollie Chessie

They have uber creative ideas for projects...and you definitely should check them out live on their U Stream channel!  They are a fun, super friendly and wonderfully inspiring group of ladies!

To get the link for the kit AND to see my take on it (in all it's glory) you will need to pop in at The Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog .  Be ready to be inspired!  Everyone's take on the kit is really fun!

your kit is gorgeous! so much scrumptiousness. I love your inclusion of the BG papers - I have those and have never used them so maybe I will drag them out! Thanks for the inspiration.
