Stealing again! Graphics, clouds, Pirates OH MY!

Can you believe we are in JULY!? Already!? Seven months of counterfeiting, WOW that is amazing! So today I am here to share with you the JULY Counterfeit Kit. We copied the main kit (and add ons if desired) from PolkaDot Whimsy HERE.

Kit we are counterfeiting (above)
For this kit I went in a different direction than normal for me (are you really surprised?). When I looked at the kit I saw GRAPHICS. I saw polka dots, stripes, chevrons, hexagons etc. Since I knew that the big bold prints of the planes etc would not work for me I went with something that would. I pulled pictures first, I find this REALLY helps me get the most from the kit. Then I decided on color scheme of pink, blue, white with splashes of yellow. Very springy in my eyes.

Next was the paper selection, I tried to keep it to a minimum but even colors. I have some polka dots (my favorite!), hexagons, stripes, subtle plaid, a few distressed, and clouds for good measure. I love clouds right now. I was blessed with a Paper Trey Ink gift card for my birthday and ordered my first ever stamps from there so OF COURSE they had to go in the kit. I love them! Some chipboard that is already embossed, felties, badges, tickets, tiny letters, sparkly bling, twine, ribbon, chipboard pieces, cloud and polka dot stamp and it was good. Since I am on the DT I got a heads up and well half of my kit is already GONE! WOOHOO! I can't wait to finish it up!

My main kit: Wild for Graphics

Swashbuckling good time kit (add on)
Now for my add on I did NOT copy either of the add on kits we were provided. While going through my photos I noticed that I had several pages to do about our Pirate cruise, playing pirates and other pirate-y things as C is really into them lately. So I dug out my DCWV All about boy stacks, some sports paper for a few basketball pages, a few polka dot papers to round it out and some letter stickers. I have more embellishments but did not add them since I could not find them right at that moment! I hope to get at least five pages done with this add on.
