Hi you all and welcome to my blog, yesterday was reveal day for the July Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog and talk about a Fabulous kit, super sweet I say:
The kit is from Noel Mignon's Balboa Kit is a beautiful mix of bright colors and Chalkboard accents. Wow and all those embellishments :) It was a fun day yesterday putting my kit together for the month, I was blessed with the day off so after the blog hop I went right to it putting it together.
So my kit Blue Skies and Raspberry Fields will be the kit I use for most of my regular scrapping and crafting (There maybe a smaller kit coming for my Big Picture class: Going Places (doing a vacation album). So I'll stop rambling and show you the kit, this is a very heavy photo post:
The pattern paper:
Master Forger: Leslie G. for the way she does her kit post with the individual papers side by side it makes it so much easier to see the paper and choose what you want to use. So my choices came from many sources old and new. The 3 raspberry reds came from that kit I mentioned above, it's from the basic grey line. On the top row the 1st 3 pieces are from CTMH Workshop on the Go: Jubilee (so that whole kit is in this month's which comes with a cute stamp set, fun flair buttons, chipboard stickers and the silver and gold triangle studs ) and with that I got the new paper pack that CTMH gave out for the month of May(?) that was 5 buck with a certain amount purchase so that is where the gold dotted vellum paper came from. The blues all came from my blue drawer and a variety of the other paper came from various paper pads and past kits. The bottom right corner are papers I found while sorting through the bag of 12 X 12 alpha sheets I have, so in the kit they go.
That's it, that is my kit for the month. I do take liberty of pulling any other needed items from my stash so I can entertain myself with monthly challenges all over bloggy world and a new Yahoo group I joined :) I have some big plans for scrapping this month, but I also will be having company in too a small family reunion with our kids in from all over and with some of the garden work you may see hiccups of times when nothing is happening with the blog, but if you look in the side yard you just might see me picking Raspberries.
So you all have a fantastic July and if you do scrap you may want to look into Counterfeit Kit Blog to get you the things needed for scrapping each month it sure does make my scrapping so much easier most of the choices are made the only thing left is picking out the pictures and the sketches I want to use.
