020313 CKC Asphalt Jungle Kit

Well, I have retired my Quiet January kit.
Only 2 pages, but it was a sad month.

 Let's check out the Magic Blue Box!

Today unveils Asphalt Jungle, a name with a nod to the Scraptastic inspiration kit shown here:

I took my start from the peacock paper in the add-on, knowing I had something like it (bottom left.)
Otherwise I kept the papers similar to the kit, either in color or pattern.
I simply don't do plain cardstock but try to keep to the colors, usually in a simple pattern.

#2 top paper was chosen as a bold graphic in place of the arrows.
#2 middle represents the chalkboard paper.
#4 middle stands in for the deep blue cardstock.
#5 bottom map paper subs for the pale blue cardstock.

I tossed in a handful of flowers & ferns.
The Studio Calico wooden word bubbles replace the negative word pieces.
I replaced the sheet of arrows with arrow washi tape.
My homemade bubble wrap stamp mimics the hexagon mask.
Walnut Ink misters in brown & blue replace Mister Huey.
 Amy Tan potty people stamp instead of the one in the kit.
And my hexagon punches are on hand along with a peacock feather stamp...

Looking forward to getting a start with this one!
It's more inspiring than I expected :~)
