My March CKC Counterfeit Kit

Good Morning Counterfeiters! Crafters! and everyone else. Yep it's a silly Monday for me a long night at work, a bit tired and then I get silly :) Counterfeit Kit Challenge unveiled their March kit for us to forge yesterday and it's not to shabby :) Here is the inspiration they supplied for us to work with: (Very photo heavy)

a kit from A Piece of Cake Designs. The first thing I spied was the woodgrain and the blues and that big cupcake in the corner (which I know isn't part of the kit but...) So here is my kit:

Tangled Up in Blue

I do have it in mine, it's on the sweet day sheets that I have in my kit (sorry it's hidden from view) I pulled some sweet, some words and bingo cards, some blues, some stripes, some florals, some triangles and some frames.
When I seen the blue in the kit the first I thought of was the CTMH Skylark workshop on the go scrapbook kit so that was added to this month's kit:
along with the extras that it came with including cardstock.
 While looking for the wood-grain sheet I came across this pack from Creative Memories called Shine paper and photo mat pack (shame I found it not even open) I like the colors and the designs so I put that in the kit.
I did finally find that wood-grain sheet it was in with the I (heart) Summer pouch of items so those went into the kit (I came across some summer photos so this will be perfect for those)
 I pulled a few papers from last month's kit that wasn't used over to this month's kit cause they matched so well. A CTMH sticker pack and the alphas I chose for the month, these are so old time to get them used up before they don't stick anymore!
Lots of doilies amongst the master forgers so I pulled a few I had for my kit.
I pulled out my tray of distress inks to use this month and the one memento ink. Not pictured is my 2 Heidi Swapp color shine spray ink in Teal and Gold Lame
I pulled my collection of Chalkboard cards, some fun wood frames, a stencil, washi tape, and clips and things from SU.
Some odds and ends added to the kit, I have plans for the basketball stuff for a layout of our grandson so that is in there.
 When I went looking for the gelatos that I knew I had gotten in a swap box a couple of years back, yep found it still in the box with all the other stuff from the swap so I'm thinking that this is my box of embellishments this month! Lets open the box and see what's in here:
A wide variety of things including a stamp wheel (will need to locate a handle in my stash for that) There was a 6X6 pad of paper in there, lots of bling, lots of precut labels, Alphabet stamp set, butterfly stamp set, rubons, naked chipboard, sequins, metal charms, brads (ones that look like screw heads too), some beads, stickers, photo corners, flowers even a date stamp! Plus lots more to finally see the light of day and make it on a crafting project! Look I spy a Cupcake!
So this is my kit for the month to craft with. Never got a real chance to use my Artbooking cricut cartridge with LOAD going on so that is staying in for another month.
I will have total access to my stash if needed, but not thinking I will need anything else :) Thanks for stopping by and if you got the time check out Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog you just might want to join in and have a fun month of crafting
