Bright & Beautiful {April's Counterfeit Kit}

The inspiration kit for this month's Counterfeit Kit Challenge was the rather delicious looking March Main Kit from Gossamer Blue! With no clear theme to the inspiration kit, I decided that I'd emulate it's eclectic mix - and tried to put together a kit full of colours, textures and patterns.

I've ended up with a selection of 6x6 papers from Dear Lizzy, Echo Park and Studio Calico and a few additional 12x12 papers from Echo Park, American Crafts and We Are Memory Keepers. Combined with several sheets of neutral cardstock, I think I might be onto a winner!

I've carried the eclectic, colourful theme on into my selection of embellishments and extras, with a wide selection of inks, spray inks, journalling cards and die-cuts. The cute, little flower cabachons were all in my beading stash - I was so thrilled to find a few that matched my paper selection so well. And, although it doesn't really 'match' any of my paper choices, I couldn't help including the Avery Elle 'Knotty Stamp Set. It's just so damn awesome!

So, even though I know I 'should' work on my Project Life back-log (I'm still working on the beginning of February!) I'm craving cute, little mini-books and teeny, tiny cards. What will you be using your kit for?
