April Counterfeit Kit Challenge-Spring Vitals

Good Morning you all and welcome to my blog, this is a heavily with photos blog post. Throughout the day yesterday I pulled my kit together for April, but first here what we had to work from:
Now are we ready to jump into our April Kit!  We will be having some fun with CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration this month!  I adore their blog!  Such a clever idea!
Let's try our hand at Case File #112.
If you have never played along with CSI before, here is how it works.  The Scene is an inspirational photo that we will be basing a kit from.  The scheme is the colors we have to work with for our kit papers and the evidence helps us get some ideas for types of embellishments (and even paper designs).  If you are needing scrappy inspiration, you can use the Testimony section to help you get some topics for scrapping.  Fun, right?
It was different that's for sure, I planned on just pulling a small kit cause I have other papers pulled for an Album I'm doing throughtout the month, but that didn't work out so well. I did pull some items that will work with the album also.
The Greens:
The Blues/Teals:
 The Yellows:
The Light Blues:
The Creams:
The cardstock: 2 pieces of White not shown
Yep, definitely the colors of spring: Blue skies, the yellow sun to make everything green up again. Spring is my favorite season so many new beginnings. The name of the kit is Spring Vitals :) You need these things to make spring happen :)
The Evidence called for pattern paper, sheer, puffy, wood, frames, flowers, create panels, ruffles and/or pleating, buttons, floral pattern, crystals:
So with the evidence list in mind I pulled out the cutout papers, stickers, vellum sheets.
Frames, rubons (florals), I also kept out the scraps of yellows, greens and wood from the last kit.
Washi and the tapes I had from last month to use up.
The ribbons: Pleated, ruffled, sheer and puffy, buttons, stickles, SU-candy dots, a sheer bag
 rub-ons and journal cards
Close To My Heart Stamps
 Alphas and word stickers,
Journal pads to choose cards from, ribbon and photo sleeves.
That's the kit, I hadn't meant to pull a lot of paper, but it seemed to work out that way. This time around I just pulled paper from my stash of paper pads that sit on a shelf above my craft desk. Mainly DCWV packs, Recollections packs with a couple of oddball ones. 3 of them weren't even opened yet, I got these right after Christmas at a Tuesday Morning store up in NY when we visited Tammy over the Christmas Holiday. I used Garden Harvest, the tie-dyed stack, Cotton Bloom stack, Rockstar stack, The Heirloom stack, the Neapolitan Collection, The Green Stack, The Old World stack, Collage Musings stack, the dots, stripes & plaids stack, Cherry Blossoms, Habitat, Crate paper.

I best get started on this kit, lots to use up :) You all have a fantastic day and a fabulous weekend, I've got some scrapping planned and cardmaking too for my weekend.
