Morning all well I was eager to get started on the March kit for the counterfeit kit, I've abstained from the 'globe' like paper as I felt it was just too similar to the previous kit in February for me and I've discovered that I have lots of turquoise papers and even blue card stock but not so much of the good old yellows which is bizarre as I thought I had loads of them as I rarely use yellow!  Anyway I digress here is this month's kit (and I believe I'm going to be adding to this one given that I made a dent in it yesterday afternoon during the rugby match on TV).

I always start with lots of paper, I did manage to find a balloon paper but thought it was too muted, but then found another one - yay!

Some pale yellow cardstock as the yellows were a bit thin on the ground if I'm honest!

I had no wood veneer papers in wood colours (I found a distressed multi coloured one), so thought I'd add a couple in that had the brown colours in them to add to the kit

I've picked out a couple of packs of embellishments too but will refrain from using any pink elements if I'm honest as my kit doesn't lend itself to that.  I was hoping for a better 'close up' of the kit but it now no longer exists on the original website so I just went with the flow as it were.

I also managed to pull a few elements together to potentially use, orange embroidery thread and bakers twine, some wooden elements, a variety of washi tapes and so project life style cards too - I love a new kit!

I'll be sharing what I create on my blog over the next few weeks
