March Counterfeit Kit Blog Hop

We are rolling along into March with our Counterfeit Kits and Challenges!  The longer we do this, the more fun I am having! 

Our Kit this month is lovingly counterfeited from Birds of a Feather.  At first, I was a bit thrown off by the very limited color palette, but once I started pulling papers, I really love how the different tones and shades play off one another.

I kept my kit a bit smaller this time around.  I am finding it harder and harder to have "me" time to work with my kits, so I didn't want to overwhelm myself.  Besides the blue and yellow, I decided to accent with a woodgrain pattern.

Don't you love these papers?  I pulled from several different kits (including Echo Park and DCWV to find just the right shades of blues and yellows.

My sweet friend Sherri had sent me some lovely handmade embellishments that I am so happy to add to this kit.  They are BEAUTIFUL!  I made the title blocks (Summertime and So Very...).

My new Tim Holts mini Rosettes Die came in handy for this kit.  I love they way they look!  I was also lucky to have just recieved these great Stampin' Up Couderoy Brads and Buttons from my friend Pam. 

Othere than that, I tossed in a few random stickers and some Alpha's to complete my kit.  I have to admit that I am still working on last month's kits, but I love them so much I am not ready to break them back down yet.

If you have not checked out the rest of our Designer's Kits for this month, head on over to Mary to get your Hop Started.  You won't want to miss ANY of them!

**And for those of you who are wondering why my posts are getting few and far between.  I am finding it tricky to juggle posting here AND posting on the CKCB.  I really want to do better with this blog, though.  I promise to try.

Beautiful paper choices. Your rosettes are a perfect fit. Love the burlap - that was genius.

I love the embellishements that your friend made for you. They would be cute to use even still on the tag. Nice choice of papers, I really like the one with the glitter clouds.

I hate it when I see a paper in someone else's kit and think, oh yeah, that would have looked great in MY kit!!! LOL! Love your kit (especially the papers I should have put in my kit!)

Roxy said...
