100114 CKC October Kit Reveal

Long live the Queen!
 has been chosen CKC October Queen! This month she has
picked the kit for us to counterfeit, chosen all three of our
challenges & will be our Guest Designer for the month.
In addition, she won a $10 gift certificate to Big Picture Classes.

Queen Laura chose this pretty kit from Hello Little Magpie.

I started out by analyzing the papers. Embellished woodgrain, plaid,
small floral, small pattern, medium floral, large floral, large polka dot, small
floral plus four coordinating cardstocks. I know I will be changing up the
color scheme but I want to stay true to the variety of patterns in the kit.

This was my start:
I rarely include cardstock but managed to come close with the colors (better in real life :)

Let's go see what's in the Magic Blue Box!

 I tossed in a few extra background papers on the left.

The inspiration kit had no alphas & as I like to choose them as I go I left them out as well.
I did include some yellow & brown acrylic alphas (no idea what they could spell but I will
give it a go!) as a nod to the transparent elements in the kit, along with some acrylic leaves.

I have a few forged elements as well that will appear in the tutorial post on the 4th.
The goodie packs are Maggie Holmes as were the stickers in the inspiration kit.
The one piece I did have was the sheet of Authentique mini-words.

Now hop on for more fab kits from the Queen's loyal subjects!

 Leave me some love!
