Counterfeit Kit Challenge for May

This month, the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog's inspiration comes from Works in Progress, and you can find them here.

 This is their main May kit.
This is their Mother's Day kit add on.

I was inspired a little by both kits.  I loved the colors in the first kit, and I loved the mini album in the second.  I have to admit that I had a hard time with this kit.  But, after looking at it for a couple of days , I decided to just combine them and make one big kit for myself.


My papers come from Basic Grey, Sassafras Lass, Echo Park, Cosmo Cricket, October Afternoon, and DCWV.



Most of them are double sided, so I have these choices too!


I have to admit that I raided my past kits and chose some unused ribbon and the letter stickers (that I never even used) to join this kit.  I added Chipboard buttons and felt flowers.  I had 7 Gypsies tags, and added to large manilla tags.  I had Tim Holtz tickets, and a Junkitz file folder mini album that I thought would be fun to add.  I found a few buttons and threw them into the mix as well...you just have to have buttons somewhere don't you?

So, what do you think?

Stay Crafty My Friends!

If there were rules, (but there are no rules) one would certainly be to have some buttons. Looks like you have pulled together great supplies. Enjoy your kit.

Your papers are a great combination, and I agree, there always should be some buttons in a kit! x
