May Counterfeit Kit

Our kit this month is http://www.gossamerblue.com/product/march-2017-main-kit/
I'm a happy scrapper because I LOVE blue.

 
 
My kit is more masculine and there is no yellow but it does feature some of the criteria.
blues
black lettering
enamel dots
small black alphas
numbers
labels
wood veneers
spectacles
paper with lines
blocks on a paper
dots on paper
small figured paper
 
 
I've adapted it to suit my needs and come up with OXFORD BLUES.

The one thing that I couldn't find was bears, so I added some for display purposes only.
 If you are away at University in Oxford, you need some home comforts like your teddy bear!


The whole kit started with the Basic Grey sheet featuring the spectacles ,named Oxford.
Suddenly I realised I had plaids, spots, lined paper, scientific labels, cameras etc ,so that was the direction I chose. (Preppy)
Here's the papers
 
My embellishments in their tray, ready to be used. I didn't go overboard this month.
 

There are three floral papers, so I added flowers and also a seashell one plus the butterfly stamps (for scientific purposes).
Instead of pink there will be some smaller red appearances.


Now here's the order of the mini blog hop:

Ooh, I love this kit. It feels almost like autumn with all of those checks and stripes - very preppy in feel too!

Love the more masculine feel with all the blues but then you can go feminine with the butterflies ;)
