February Counterfeit Kit Challenge

I am so excited to be able to play again this month. I really think this idea is brilliant. I'm looking at old product in a new way and having fun challenging myself not to spend much money this year on scrapping products. Once again, everything is from my stash. I wasn't able to pull the flowers, but having boys I don't use them much.
The papers are from all different manufacturers. These colors are waaaaaay out of the box for me, so for me it will be a challenge to try and use them. The large floral die cut paper is so pretty, I don't think I could stand to cut it up.




My embellies are pretty old, but I still like them and they fit the theme.
And for the alphas, I picked out a few of my favorites (Jenni Bowlin & American Crafts I just adore!!) I also pulled out a stamp set that I got on sale at Joann's a couple weeks ago for $3.97. The design of it works perfectly with this kit.
I'm looking forward to creating, learning new techniques, & sharing my layouts with new scrappy friends this month.

HI Judy- I love that flower paper, but I know exactly what you mean about cutting it up. I struggle with that same kind of thing and I have to push myself to just do it and create. I'm always glad I did in the end! Can't wait to see what you make with the kit! Kim
