March 2016 Counterfeit Kit Challenge Reveal Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the March 2016 reveal blog hop.  You may have arrived here by hopping from lovely Lesley’s blog.  But if you didn’t start at the top, you can find the entire list below.  Enjoy!

Start: This month we are starting with Ali Edwards’ Click Story Kit from April 2015.


With the obvious theme of taking photos and the 3 x 4 and 4 x 6 cards as inspiration, I started by looking for photo-taking elements and cards in my Project Life stash.  And I found quite a few, but then I was perplexed as to what kind of paper I wanted to use.

Quite by serendipity, I came across a half-used page kit from a class I took at April 2015’s Creating Keepsakes convention. (Yay, happy coincidence!)  As it turned out, the limited color scheme of Gossamer’s Blue’s On My Desk collection worked quite well with the cards and doodads I had already selected.  It even included some photo frame die-cuts and a couple of 3 x 4 cards I had done in class while learning to mist.  The colors are nearly a match to Ali's kit, but my green is so much softer than her spring green.

Star Of The Show:
