Thirtieth Counterfeit Kit

Jimjams Counterfeit Kit detail Time certainly does fly when you're having fun!  I have been Counterfeit Kitting for just over three years now and this will be my 30th "free" kit, "bought" from my existing stash ... you'd think that I'd have no scrappy supplies left by now, but somehow they keep getting replenished ... can't imagine how LOL

Anyway, welcome to my 30th kit share: we're using Cocoa Daisy's February Kits as inspiration and you may have started with this month's Guest Designer, my friend Elaine, or you may have popped over to me from Angela's blog and seen her arty take on things.

Time is short for me this month, plus I have my first DT kit from SJ Crafts to play with, so I decided to keep my Counterfeit Kit small.  I was desperate to counterfeit the Studio Calico stitched journalling cards, so I decided to have a go at counterfeiting the Day In The Life Add-On.

Cocoa Dasiy February 2014 Day In The Life Kit

Now I don't actually do a daily, weekly or even monthly pocket style of scrapping ... but I'm going to try and incorporate all these mini cards into my layouts ... either with lots of layering or with a blocky design.  So here's what I'll be playing with this month:
