CKCB May kit

Good morning from a chilly, yet dry, Kent.. and drum roll......... 

This morning I am bringing you a new Counterfeit kit inspired from the CKCB Blog from an old Jenni Bowlin kit from 2011! Now, I confess, it didn't on first inspection 'float my boat' but on closer inspection I noticed some paper in there that had large roses on it.. and a sheet of what looked like Sassafras paper that I (still!) had a sticker sheet of too... and that got me started.. sometimes that's all you need isn't it?. 

I am aware it isn't a faithful replica of it..but I'm happy and it will use up some of my older stash too! Hurrah! 

So.. here goes.. here is my kit 'Everything is coming up roses'. I started with some of my favourite rose paper of all time.. Kaisercraft, Sweet Pea range... and picked out random sheets of co-ordinating papers from loads of collections.. a real eclectic selection. 

From then on I chose the embellishments to go with it all and I am sure to add lots more this month... as it is National Scrapbooking Day here in the UK I am off to a crop this mornig from 10am to 6pm so I have all my challenges, sketches etc ready and I am set! Woo Hoo.. never been so organised! Bring it on.... 

I'll be back later to share my LO's but as this is my 200th post on my blog... I promised I would have a small giveaway for new followers of my blog. Sadly this generated only one new follower... but you are very welcome Jenny Hart (check out her lovely blog here)... and if you contact me I will happily send you your prize!

That's it for now.. have a great day all.. and .... have a great NSD!
