Counterfeit Kit February Challenge #3

Over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog, we were challenged:

Challenge #3:  Say What Challenge...Pick a quote or a fun family saying and base your project on that!

I was truly stumped by this challenge, until I thought of this page that I just made for LOAD, talking about what all of my daughters' classmates and friends had to say about them for their 5th grade graduation. I did make it almost entirely with my February kit, only adding the shimmery purple cardstock, so I felt it would be appropriate to share. This is also a great example of how you can make challenges work for you! If it doesn't speak to you right away, think about it again. What does it make you think of? Use the first thing that comes to mind, even if it is a little different than the actual challenge! And remember, if you use your kits, we want to see- Link us up at the Counterfeit Kit challenge.

Here is my layout:

I hope it helps you think about challenges a little differently!

Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit for February 2016, "How Sweet It Is(To Be Loved By You)"

Welcome to the design team blog hop for this month's Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit! This month, we are counterfeiting the awesome February kit from Mind The Scrap:

I took inspiration from the patterns and color schemes, especially the scalloped patterned paper from Maggie Holmes' Bloom Collection:

I had a pretty scalloped paper in similar colors-it's on the back row, third from the left. I pulled that paper first, and then pulled the rest of my kit to coordinate.

These are the papers that I selected:

The inspiration kit had a mix of Amy Tangerine's new line and Maggie Holmes' new line, so I looked to their reveals for embellishment inspiration, and came up with a kit loaded with lots of yummy embellishments:

If you would like a closer look at the items that I included in my kit, I made a quick video to show everything a little better:

Now that you've seen my kit, hop around to the other designers and see how they were inspired to make kits from their stash:
