Also, I started planning a fun family vacation for this summer (my kids' first trip to Disney!), and am
On a totally unrelated note, I have felt the need for some scrappy inspiration for a few weeks, and I saw the jolt that I needed on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog this morning! The inspiration that they chose for this month is a warm, pretty kit from Cocoa Daisy; Color Swatch:
As you can see, I stuck with the raspberry and sunny golden tones of the inspiration kit, but added in a bit of mint/sky blue to take it to a more spring-like than Valentine's style kit. I filled the kit with designs that I love, from Dear Lizzy's Lucky Charm, Polka Dot Party, Maggie Holmes Flea Market, Amy Tangerine's Yes Please (looove those pink cameras), one from Carta Bella's Wildflower, and a couple from American Crafts My Girl. I did go a little heavier on the embellishments than the Cocoa Daisy kit, but it is always tough editing out embellishments for kits! I have an assortment of old and new, trendy and classic, messy and simple. Thickers in 2 sizes and colors, an older gold Making Memories alpha in a smaller font, Perfect Pearls mist and Dylusions, gold glitter tape, a stencil, some photo overlays, Maggie Holmes hairpin embellies, flowers, a glassine envelope, a couple of Maya Rd polka dot envelopes, enamel dots, Cosmo Cricket chipboard stickers, Glitz layered stickers, AC heart shaped buttons, a partial package of puffy stickers, some DIY chalkboard flair from AC, and stitched layered butterfly stickers.
I can't wait to put this warm and happy kit to use!
