March Counterfeit Kit: Early Morning

Time for my March Counterfeit Kit reveal.
CKCB's inspiration for this month's kit comes from the February Kits created by Cocoa Daisy. 
The main kit is Colour Swatch and there are some great papers and embellishments in it.

There are lots of add on kits to choose from too and Mood Board caught my eye straightaway.

I've been dying to use some fab chalkboard stickers and tags from Toga that I found recently so I mixed and matched from Mood Board and Colour Swatch to create my kit. 

Forged Sunshine Kit #1
I’m calling my kit “Early Morning” because the colours all remind me of the view from my bedroom window this month, slate grey/blue skies layered with streaks of pinky sunrise and wonderful yellow daffodils growing beside the stone walls which make such a striking background.

Forged Sunshine Kit #2

Assorted washi tapes and PL style journalling cards; Tim Holtz ideaology alpha cards; cardstock photo frames from Toga; transparent die-cuts from Studio Calico;  a variety of bold black alphas and chipboard elements from stash; stickers from MME; coordinating brads & buttons from stash.

Forged Mood Board Kit

Double sided papers:
Crate Paper - Market Curio (Cocoa Daisy includes this in the Sunshine Kit); Aperature; Happy Day.
Adorn it –- Misty Collection – Graphs.
BoBunny – C’est La Vie en Rose.
My Minds Eye – the sweetest thing.
Echo Park- Beautiful life/Floral
We R Memory Keepers – Chalkboard Black/Grey
I've included just one piece of winter white cardstock but will probably use some from stash, too.
Happy Scrapping
