March Counterfeit Kit and Inspiration Blog Hop!


I am digging this photo.  While they are predicting more snow and freezing temperatures, I am going to pretend I am going around on that Ferris Wheel…care to join me?  I don't mind the cold so much, but I am seriously ready for some SUNSHINE!

In order to distract myself from the Arctic Vortex that will be coming for one last round, let's take a look at this month's kit.

March's Counterfeit Kit:

Coco Daisy has a great kit for February called Color Swatch.  The name alone makes me all happy.
Here is the main kit, but PLEASE take a peek at the site…SO many more choices for you to Counterfeit this month!  (You can find all of the add on choices HERE.)

February 2014 kit "Color Swatch"

Give a warm welcome to our Guest Designer for this month:  Elaine!



'Hi.. I'm Elaine... firstly may I say how thrilled I am to have been asked to be your guest designer this month... I hope I won't disappoint! 

I am a busy wife and mother and Part Time Estate Agent in Kent, UK. I have been married to my wonderful husband Mark for 34 years and I have two adult sons who no longer live at home. I also have three dogs who keep me busy and active... and give me lots of opportunities to scrap! I also open my home for bed and breakfast guests on occasion. 

My passion for Scrapbooking has been growing since I began this absorbing hobby three years ago and I can safely say I am addicted. I am also just starting to dabble in art journals. 

In scrapbooking and life in general I am know to be very speedy and I think nothing of creating many layouts in one day if the opportunity arises. My nickname has always been 100mph Elaine.. and I have to say I do understand why.. it's just the way I am! Making LO's has become a way of life for me and you will often find me tucked away in my craft room whiling away the hours while my dear husband is on duty as a Firefighter. 

We are so happy to have Elaine with us this month.  Make sure you stroll around her blog and see her wonderful projects!

I cannot wait to see the kits our team has put together for this month to inspire you!  (And yes, I am always just as surprised as you arethey generally don't give me a sneak peek.)  To do our hop, just click on Elaine's link to see her kit.  She will have a link to the next blog and so on until you get to our Fabulous Stephanie!  Have fun and don't forget to leave comments for my "girls".  :)  We get paid in love around here.
