April Counterfeit Kit

So, it's taken me 3 days, but I finally got a kit together for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge. This month's inspiration can be seen at Front Porch Kits. I actually have some of that Echo Park paper sitting in an online shopping cart, and while it was tempting to pay for it and wait on it, the idea of a counterfeit kit is to use what I already have. So, it's still sitting in the shopping cart (yay me!).

My kit:

Papers are from My Mind's Eye, DCWV, Cosmo Cricket, The Paper Studio, Basic Grey, and Club Scrap (that has probably been in my stash 5 years); American Crafts and Basic Grey cardstock; misc. ribbons, flowers, buttons, and chipboard; stamps from Unity, American Crafts, Fancy Pants, and Close to My Heart; Stampin' Up bird punch. I added in some chipboard that I can cut into any other shapes that I might need. I forgot to pull out my stickles before I took the photo, but I'm sure I'll be using them. I haven't found anything to replace Hank the Plank, but later I might add something to alter.

Once I clean up my mess, I'll be ready to create!
