CKC - August Kit Reveal - Summer Life

Good Morning :)   If you are looking for the Sketch N Scrap post you can find it here.
Well hello August! Wow where did July go! Master Forger Cindy has given us an inspiring kit this month to counterfeit. But first we would like to give a shout out to our Guest Forger this month is Doreen Vasquez
I'm just about at the end of the blog hop :) So you should have reached me from the creative Lisa's blog excited to see what she pulled together for this inspiration. If you are just beginning the blog hop here then you will find the full hop order at the bottom of this post.
The kit she has chosen for us is the July 2018  Cocoa Daisy “Twinkling of the Tea”.

There’s a nice mix of greens, oranges and yellows in this kit to take us into the Fair Season and late summer. 

They also have a Pocket Kit, Pattern paper add on, Stamp Set, Planner Kit and a Planner add on kit – links are below. I have attached pictures of the kits. The website has lots more.

Now my process of figuring out a kit from this inspiration is this:
 Scribbling of notes about the kit I see :) So here is my kit:
This kit and the words reflect what our Summer has been about less the tractor die cuts which you may see on my layouts this month. Love the soften colors of the kit for the end of the summer her in PA.
 My papers, little bit of everything from the list except the Plus Signs and the Doodly Dot, with an additional map paper for my title page of my Cleveland Trip album. Went first to my 100 Pattern Paper challenge pile first to pick papers from before heading to my stash of Paper Pads and lastly looked in a couple of my loose pattern paper drawers to finish it off
 My alphas lots of blacks and greys.
 Chip board, 3 different stamp sets and the hexagon punch too. Added 3 ribbons to the kit and the paper clips in some extra colors
 Variety of die cuts I brought over from last months kit it worked out well for this kit and the color scheme.
 Sure is the good stuff with in this kit and looks like a fun month to scrap too.
Thanks for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your kit from this fun challenge this month :) Now off you go and see what fun kit Laura came up with over on her Instagram page
