Counterfeit Kit Challenge - June Kit Reveal Blog Hop

Hello.  Welcome to our June Kit Reveal and blog hop.  I do hope you've worked up an appetite as I have something delicious to share with you.  Counterfeit Kit Challenge has given us many options for kit-copying this month.  Here are the selections, all from Scraptastic Club, from which we had to choose.

I decided to focus on the "After the Storm" kit as pictured here:
May 2013 After the Storm Kit

The color green is what first struck me when studying this kit.  I also noticed that between the kraft and corrugated cardboard, a good deal of brown is represented.  And when I see green and brown together, I think of this...

Presenting my June Counterfeit Kit 
(insert groan here!)

Just as Key Lime Pie is rich and decadent, I whipped up a kit to match the lusciousness of one of my favorite desserts.  First, let's take a look at the main ingredients (aka the papers)

I followed the inspiration kit's lead with the solid cardstock, but then just took off "going green" with the other papers.  Of course, I HAD to include the tangy lime slices!

Next, let's look at the ingredients that will make my layouts sweet.

A generous pinch of Studio Calico Wood veneers along with a dash of washi will ensure success.

One cup of corrugated cardboard butterflies and 1/4 cup of Basic Grey flags yield scrumptious layouts.

Equal parts Distress Ink (in Lemonade and Shabby Shutters) along with some Thickers in 2 shades of green are some of the secret ingredients!  (Shhhh...don't tell!)

The Key Lime Pie recipe is stored safely away in this recipe basket, but on top you can find a variety of journaling tags to add special stories to layouts.

I don't have a Silhouette, but my good old Cricut helped me to create a little "sunshine" tag.  Those papers with negative space cut outs are so popular right now.  And you can't have Key Lime Pie without the limes OR lime green flowers and baker's twine.

So, let's bring it all together again and take a look...

Ready for a slice?  Perhaps with a generous dollop of fresh whipped cream and garnished with a fresh lime? Oh...I wish I could really offer you some!  Instead, I hope I have offered you some inspiration to create your own kit this month.  Whether you choose "After the Storm" or any of the other fabulous inspiration kits, I hope you play along with us this month.  Be sure to link up your creations with Mr. Linky over at the CKC blog.  And if it's any consolation on not being able to offer you a slice of pie, consider this - at least your kit will be sugar-free, fat-free, and cholesterol-free, but full of 100% scrappy goodness!
