Did ya miss me?

If you noticed my last blog post I mentioned that I wasn't feeling well. That was the start of what I'd like to call the cold from hell! Seriously, the baby and I have had this cold type thing for almost 3 weeks. And every time I think I'm getting better, it just laughs at me and moves on to a different part of the body. It started out as a run of the mill cold and then moved into a flu type thing, then we had a sinus infection. Took all my antibiotics and it's now moved into fluid in the ears and lungs that has added a whole new level of disgustingness. Ewww, you probably didn't want to know all that, but suffice it to say, there hasn't been a whole lot of crafty things going on here.

But I did put together my Faux kit for the {why can't I make a cute little link in blogger? I used to be able to do it, what happened to me?} Counterfeit kit challenge. And I stare lovingly at it wondering when I'll have the energy to craft with it. This month they have been inspired by Studio Calico's March kit "Into the Woods" Here's my interpretation.

I wasn't really digging the color of Studio Calico's kit, so I went in my own direction. So I used Stampin Up paper and it must be from a while back b/c I just looked through the last 3 catalogs and I didn't see it there. The top left brown plaid, the darker brown {just a scrap and this one has got to be at least 5 years old,} the light pink pinstripe and the light green diamond PP are all SU!. I've been itching to use my new Basic Grey Green at Heart kit, so I pulled out the {top row} flowers, pink dotty circles, rows of daisy's and {middle row} orange swirly paper. The names for those are, in order: recycle, pea {um, why is bright pink paper called pea?}, emerald {I'm sensing a trend} and oscar. Last paper is only a scrap for me and it's Making memories {I believe} the blue and green shaped paper. I also pulled out the BG alpha stickers and element stickers, Paisley Cricut cart, Studio M stamps and SU! stamps Punch Potpourri and Bliss. Looking at the photo I'm realizing that I didn't put any cardstock in there. Not to worry though, I'll remedy that soon!

I can't wait to craft with this kit!
