This is my month to put together a mini-kit for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog based on the Cocoa Daisy February 2017 Kits. I used the exclusive papers as the basis for a page kit. Here's a look at my inspiration:

My embellishments include some rubber banners and a tag from Maggie Holmes, puffy heart stickers from Elle's Studio, and a 4x6 card and a sheet of blue puffy "plus signs" from the Ali Edwards' "Bond" Story kit.
Since we are using Cocoa Daisy for our inspiration this month, I decided to base my page on their March page sketch:

I've had the photo on the left in my "to scrap" pile - it's been there for quite a while because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. The 4x6 pocket card gave me the idea to tell the story of the sister bond between my daughters. I paired it with a second, older, photo that I converted to black and white - I wanted two photos on the page to show the bond between the girls over the years.
I trimmed the card into a banner shape and used it as the title for my page. I scattered my journaling around the layout, adding pairs of plus sign stickers and hearts to further emphasize the theme of my page. I outlined the paper strips and banner to help them stand out a little more, and then outlined the page edges as well. My last step was to add three of the rubber banners.
We've got more mini-kits and projects on the CKC blog - go here to see what some of the other Master Forgers have in store. I hope you've been inspired to make up your own kit this month, whether it's a page kit, a mini-kit or one packed full of your favorite supplies. And don't forget to add your kit to our monthly link-up so that we can all see what you put together.
