040613 CKC April Kit - Basically Grayt!

Oh, how I love to play at the Counterfeit Kit Club
And this month's inspiration kit, the Gossamer Blue March kit, was so very inspiring :~)

I tackled the papers first.
Loved the Glitz hearts...

...& braided stripes.

This took me a lot longer to figure out how to do it than to actually do it, lol.
I only had one piece of the paper so I copied it letter size, which dictated how long of a stretch I could braid.

Shall we peek at what else is in the Magic Blue Box?

 There was an extra black add-on kit which I thought would be terrific.

And yes, he has gorgeous dimples & a really sweet smile *sigh*
We are truly, abundantly blessed, praise the Lord.

Happy scrapping!


  1. Congrats on the new grandbaby! He's adorable!

    I *LOVE* your hearts paper. I am totally going to have to try this too! LOVE LOVE LOVE!! (And I'm smacking my head with a total "Now, why didn't I think of that!?!" )

  2. That Magic Blue Box never disappoints! Love the way you put the question marks over the top. What a beefy kit full of so many goodies. Were you really able to fit the whole kit in that box? You are truly a master at crafting your own products. Braiding that paper is genius and the heart paper is totally do-able. Definitely think I need to make that one up and add it to my kit. Have fun creating some wonderful layouts (especially grandbaby ones!) with this kit. xoxoxo

  3. Congratulations on the safe arrival of your Grandson!! what an incredible kit....fantastic!!! Brilliantly forged papers and so many lovely bits and bobs to choose from ;0)

  4. congrats on the new little one, he's adorable.

    Great kit, love the elephant stamp and how you did that hearts paper - wow.

  5. You can't really expect me to comment on your kit once I've seen that adorable little bundle, right? Welcome, Cooper. I suspect you will be the star of many a scrapbook page.

  6. thank you for giving me a DUH! moment on the braided paper. like your kit.

  7. Xoxo welcome to Earth, Cooper!!! Oh my goodness, life is good! What a blessing! Xoxo Congrats, Leslie! Heidi P.S. Always love a glimpse of what is in the magic blue box. :). Thanks for the peek! Hoping you have seen more of spring there in MI than us here in Ontario....

  8. Congratulations on a new grandbaby!!! Looooove the kit - especially your beautiful heart DIY paper! Also, I've been trying to leave comments on your Flickr photos but it won't let me. Not sure what is happening, but I looooove your layouts. The commuting page is wonderful - a great take on daily life. The orange/blue layout is stunning. Love how the pictures just jumps right off the page! Fabulous work!!!!

  9. Congratulations! And as far as the kit goes? Awesome! I love your heart paper!

  11. Congratulations!! Beautiful kit that you put together and that counterfieted stripe paper is absolutly fabulous!!!

  12. congrats on the new sweet grandbaby! LOVE this kit for so many reasons; one being the fact that you had a heart punch and made the Glitz paper yourself...I hunted high & lo in my stash but did not have that punch! Also, love the elephant stamps and the black add on kit!
