I AM SO EXCITED!!! ~~ CKC March Kit

I am SO excited!!!
I am the Guest Designer for March for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog!!
And I am the first stop on the blog hop.
I'm SO excited!!!!!  
Did I say that already?  =)

When they contacted me, I was so excited I could hardly stand it.  
With surgery looming large,
it gave me something positive to focus on.
So great!!
My plan was to get everything set and ready to go before surgery
on the 25th,
and then the docs pushed my surgery up 2 weeks!
But no prob.
I got busy and got my kit together.

So let's get to it shall we?

The kit for this month is FANTASTIC!!!
It is the Soda Shoppe Kit
by Noel Mignon.

This kit is so large and so right up my alley.
The colors are delish.
I mean YUMM-Y!!

So here is my kit.
I'll start with the paper:
Represented here are:
Crate Paper On Trend - LaMode and Style
American Crafts - 5th N Frolic - Foxy Fairview and Storytime Street
American Crafts - Campy Trails
Glitz - Pretty in Pink
Authentique - Blissful and Pleasant
Fancy Pants 

Then for my cardstock I chose:
Bazzil:  Turquoise Polka - Mustard - Leaf
Tim Holtz Kraft Resist Card Stock
Tim Holtz Kraft Resist Graft 
Salmon (Christmas Pack, Paper Studio)

I LOVE the salmon color in this kit and tried to get lots of it in my kit.
Every little snippet I could find.
I've decided I need more turquoise and more teal =)

So onto the embellishments.....

I LOVE the Heidi Swapp trimmings.....
but I didn't have any, 
so what's a girl to do?
Well, make her own of course =)

I LOVE how it turned out and have used it on a LO already and 
Love it!!
I also picked up some teal tissue paper that I'm going to be making into
some more yummy trimmings.

Also, I dolled up my own mini bags.
LOVE how those turned out.
A little washi.....
A stamp here.....
a stamp there.....
some patterened paper.....
some punched hearts.....
a Studio Calico mask.....
some Tattered Angels Mist....
and yes lots and lots of fun.....
and those little bags are complete =)
There's also some confetti filled hearts....
a confetti filled bag and lots of trimmings....
Elle's Studio banners.....
so many fun embellies in this kit.....

Oh and the journaling spots, doilies.....
letter stickers....
and this month I wanted to include some 
stamps that rarely see the light of day.....
and my doily die.....
things I really want to use this month.

And oh the stickers.....
Aren't those owls lovely?....
There are so many fun stickers and die cuts.....
and see those darling little papers in the back there?
Well those are from a Webster's Sprinkle Pack
that I have not used and the colors are 
perfect and lovely for this kit.
So they are included.

And then just some more bits and pieces.....

And now I'm sure your thinking,
"This is one HUGE kit!!"
To which you would be right,
but it is the way I scrap.
I like lots of choices at my finger tips.
Kits have become the way that I scrap.
It makes things so much easier.
And if your wondering how I store it.....
Here ya go.
All of that is packed in these.....
Very organized.....
Very together.
Now if I can just keep it that way =)

So thank you SO much to CKC 
for asking me to be the Guest Designer
this month.

There is more to come from me this month,
and I am looking SO forward to it.

And now the next stop in this blog hop is

Have a Blessed and Beautiful,
