April CKC kit..."Secret Garden"

Welcome everyone! And welcome spring! Spring is my favorite season, and always has been, with the blooming trees, the lighter, longer days, and the mad hustle and bustle of the end of the school year.So, I loved it when we were given a very flower heavy kit to be inspired by. And, let me tell you, these kits can be turned into quite a stash busting extravaganza!
The kit we were given to be inspired by this month is: http://cestmagnifiquekits.blogspot.co.uk/2016/01/cest-magnifique-february-kit-reveal.html



Here is the kit that I made , using this kit for inspiration:






And I made a video, showing my choices, and why I selected them from my stash:


C'est Magnifique had several add ons, and I did a pretty good job of using my kit last month, so I went ahead and "counterfeited" the add on kits as well. Here is their mixed media kit:


And mine:
