It's a New June Kit with Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog

I may get a couple of hours or just a couple of minutes but I try to do something crafty each day :) I have come to find out that kitting for the month or even for a page helps extremely :) That is one thing I don't have to think about cause it is done and that is something I pull together on a weekend. This is my best reason that you all need to play along with Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog !
Wow the new inspiration kit over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog is so trendy and so fun! It didn't take me too long to pull my kit for this inspiration:
Isn't that a fun looking kit! Here is what I pulled from my stash:
Summer Daze
I got a bit of Summer happening in my back yard, with all the multi-colors and the florals of the inspiration kit, reminded me of days of summer :) So I grabbed from a variety of paper companies for my kit: Recollections Neapolitan collection, I'm a big fan of Simple Stories so I have both So Fancy and I (Heart) Summer collections. The I (Heart) Summer collection is mainly cut-apart sheets and will be trying to use these up over the summer. There is some Cosmo Cricket, Shimelle and DCWV from various pads.
From their inspirational embellishment kit:
I pulled these embellishments:
 Lots of enamel dots, hearts, found some border strips to play with, buttons, veneer, stars, flairs and some golden goodness I got from CTMH
 Chipboard, stickers, slide mounts and frames to use this month
 Some sticker sheets and another chipboard sheet. I added a 6X6 paper pad and a 3X4 paper pad to the mix.
Alphas: Large and small and quite the variety :) I've been trying to work through those little ones to get them out of my stash and they are trendy right now :)
So that is my kit for this month :) I will be using part of it for a class that I'll be working on this month called Stretch Your Kit from Nicole Jones and with that kit I'll be pulling another small kit to work with this class as well as I am working on some vacation photos from last year by way of the class I just took from Shimelle: The Scrapbook Process and excellent class and one that really helps with making the albums you work on more fun :) So a bit of homework to do per se :)

It's gonna be a fun month to scrap :)
