Happy March and welcome to my stop on the Counterfeit Kit March Reveal and Blog Hop! I haven't put together a full counterfeit kit since November so I feel like I'm a bit out of practice. Fortunately, this month's inspiration is so pretty that I found it very easy to get back in the swing of things.
You've probably already seen that we are working from the February 2017 Hip Kits. Here's a look at the main kit, which is what I used for the basis of my kit:

This kit, with its florals, butterflies and springtime colors, is just what I need to chase away the winter blues! I knew I had several similar patterned papers in my supplies so I couldn't wait to get started making a kit of my own.
I'm not terribly creative when it comes to naming my kits; I often take the name right from an embellishment or paper name. One of the phrase stickers provided just what I needed this time too, and so here is my March CKC kit, "Ray of Sunshine":
I'll admit that I went a little crazy with the embellishments on this one but let's start with the papers first.
Since I've been using white cardstock as the base of most my pages lately, I only selected 8 papers for the kit. Starting at the top left, my selections were Crate Paper/Hello Love Collection/"Smitten"; Amy Tangerine/Better Together Collection/"Peanut Butter + Jelly"; Bo Bunny/Butterfly Kisses Collection/"Petals"; Studio Calico/Camellia/"Brushes"; Maggie Holmes/Bloom Collection/"Flutter"; Shimelle/Starshine Collection/"Artemis"; Autumn Leaves/Foof-a-la/"Savannah Parasol"; and Crate Paper/Hello Love Collection/"You and Me". That floral from Studio Calico was my first pick - it formed the basis of my kit but to be honest, I'm not really sure how I'll use it. I tend to shy away from photo-realistic papers but I'm willing to give it a try.
I chose lots of pink and gold embellishments and have sequins, wood veneer, puffy stickers, clips, die-cuts, stamps, acrylic words and stickers from a variety of manufacturers.
So that's my take on the inspiration this month. I am the final stop on the hop but in case you missed anyone, here is the complete list of all the stops:
