Back today to share another kit that I managed to kill off during LOAD514 :-)
My Counterfeit Kit Challenge March kit, Balance, was a neutral-toned selection of partial sheets which I thought would be good for making some cards. In the end, I managed to make 6 full layouts and no cards at all. But it just worked so well when I wanted to have a softer background in contrast to the photo or maybe which helped support the theme of the page.

I was inspired to make this swirly twine banner from a Pinterest find but I can't find the source. If I track it down, I'll add the link.
The blonde was just one of many hair horrors during my teenage years - never again! Brunette and proud of it!
I love using sequins but sometimes struggle to attach them, managing to get glue everywhere, so when I came up with the idea of stapling them on individually I thought I'd give it a try. I like the effect.
I've used this baby photo time and time again but there are many stories to tell and so few photos that it always works. I also like the fact that the "spot" is so clear to see which supported my story. Having recently scanned many older photos, it was good to come up with a way of differentiating all those black and white baby photos!

This one was just using up the last of the bits and pieces in the bottom of the kit box. As always, over the weeks that a kit is active, a few additional articles found their way in there (such as that black and cream spot) but they are all treated equally. Some kits "grow" considerably over their lifetime but that can keep them from being boring.
Well, this is the second time I've written this post due to the joys of limited technology so I'll sign off now.
Although my scrap style might usually be more colourful, I really enjoyed using this simpler palette for a change. What do you think about neturals?
