April Counterfeit Kit along with CKC

Hi you all! Well I took the time this morning to put my April kit together for the inspirational kit at Counterfeit Kit Challenge they used: A Beautiful Mess and they have a very fun kit called a Messy Box (we are doing the March one)
This is what I saw: Lots of Bright colors (Orange, Bright Gold, Bright Pink, Light Blue and Gray) and lots of B/W colors, Gold Alpha, Vellum cuts, Brads, Washi tape with writing on it, Transparency and lots of PL style cards. Bold designs and graphics, lots of Love and lots of words :) A little bit out of my comfort zone, but hey I'll git it a try :) So here is the kit I pulled and I call it : Mix and Mingle
 Lots of bright papers, lots of washi tape, glitter tape, twine and fibers to use, Lots of Alphas, and a variety of embellishments. should be an interesting month to scrap and craft some cards :) Here is the breakdown in close up photos:
The papers I chose are really all over the place: Got some B/W sheets, geometrics in a various of colors, also pulled apart one paper pad to try to get most of that finished off this month (most of the paper is in the center row toward the right hand side) put in a couple of tiedye sheets too. Most of the paper comes from Die Cuts With a View, but there is the K&Company paper pad that I tore apart so can I eliminated from m stash and have it in the scrapbooks and some stray papers from different manufacturers.
I added what I had left of CTMH Ivy Lane paper pack, couple of papers from DCWV Rockstar (Master Forger Margie had that bold diagonal in her kit and I knew when I seen it that this kit was the perfect time to use that paper so I added it to mine too. My PL cards some from Midnight kit, some from Jade kit and some cut ups from Simple Stories Documented line. I also found this fun spray in a swap box I received it'll be interesting to see how well it works out.
 The Alphas: a wide range of styles and I pulled all the gold ones I had besides a few other colors too.
 Vellum to make some of the shapes that were in the inspirational kit and the one transparently it'll be fun trying to figure out how to use that
 Variety of different embellishments: Old school smash tapes, and some color washi tapes too. ribbons, trims, stickles, glitter tape, flowers (with white brads), pearls, brads, studs, metals, felt and some lace too.
 More embellishments: photo mats, frames for cards and LO, fabric art to make flowers, clear shapes, paper flower stickers, chipboard pieces, white stars, die cuts, embossing stencils and a fun stamp set from CTMH.
2 kits that I wanted to add cause the colors worked so well with this kit :) Arithmetic from Colorbok and Hopskotch from CTMH with a really fun stamp set too. Will be using the same distress stamps from last month's kit to ink these stamp up with. So that is the kit for the month :)  should be a colorful month to scrap :)
