I was definitely inspired - it took me very little time to put together my CKC kit for the month, "Hello, Sunshine":
As usual, I'll start with the papers:
The first paper I chose was "Pretty Palette" from Crate Paper/Maggie Holmes Styleboard Collection:

Now on to the embellishments. Last month, many of the Master Forgers included Project Life or pocket cards in their kits. I thought this was a great idea and so this month I've included some in mine.
These are from the journaling cards set from Crate Paper's "Notes and Things", which I think might be my favorite scrapbooking collection of all time.
Next, I added some stamps, a sticker sheet from a very old Crate Paper collection (isn't it amazing how consistent their color schemes are?) and another of my forgeries for this month.
For the rest of my embellishments, I turned to my color boxes. I have some 4x6 plastic boxes and when I'm finished with my CKC kits, I sort the remaining embellishments by color and store them in these boxes. I talk a little more about the boxes in this post.
Lately I've been adding to the boxes but not really using the contents so I thought I'd include a selection from some of the boxes in my kit. Here's what I picked:
I chose a variety of colors, shapes and types: chipboard, felt, washi, trim, labels and other miscellaneous odds and ends. I'm not sure how I ended up with four ampersands but I'll have to come up with a way to get them on a layout.
So that's my kit - I'm excited to dig in and work with it. I hope you'll play along with us this month and link up your kit and projects on the CKC blog here so we can all get a little inspiration from your work.
If you missed any of the stops on the reveal, here are the links to the other Master Forgers' blogs so you can stop by and see all the lovely kits this month:
