Counterfeit Kit for April 'Sunshiny Day'

I didn't get to use much of my kit last month, but I have kept it all together so that I can go back to it when I have more time.

I had to play along this month as the divine Gossamer Blue kit for March was the one chosen to be forged and I, along with many others I suspect, had drooled over it longingly!! I did even contemplate signing up but remembered that I am not supposed to be buying....although that rule got broken today as there is a brilliant bargain on embossing folders at Cutting Edge Crafts..there £1 each, people...I had to!!!

Anywho, on to my version of the kit. I do have quite a few of the papers in the kit (albeit in mini versions) but decided to go along with the idea of CKC and find alternatives from my stash :0)

*** photo heavy post coming up***

so this is it in it's glorious completeness, so now let me show you in more detail!

I started with the cardstock and then picked and chose papers that had a similar feel or colour to the original.

Embellies are a mix of Silhouette cuts, free printables, some really new bits and some terribly old ones!!

I don't know how much time I will have to play but I am trying to give myself one evening a week in my haven :0)

Thanks for popping in,
