Here is the main kit.
I looked at the patterned paper on the top row second in from the left. It reminded me of the CC "Earth Love" line. I had bought a double pack of that on sale for $6 regularly $30! This one sheet was my starting point. I would have never thought to mix some vibrant orange to this mix but I love the look!
I decided to duplicate one of the add on kits. Since I am still totally in love with any blues and yellows, it was an easy decision to choose this one.
Here is my kit!
I did have the one piece of the new Stella and Rose paper. In my efforts to use up the stash, I only bought two full sheets of this collection as well as the 6x6 paper pack. Just a taste of this line as it reminds me so much of the Crate "Restorations" line. I remembered that I had a CC paper that reminded me of the look of the bottom right paper in the kit. It was fun to mix this with some of last years MME. I added in two of the small sheets of the Stella and Rose paper that is in the original kit. Might be handy for making embellishments.
My next step will be to choose the photos to go with my new kits. I never end up doing any of the challenges or blog hop on the site. I tend to get so excited about my new kits that I use them up before the challenges are posted!! I'm okay with that because I am just happy to be using up my supplies on hand.
Speaking of scrapping frugal, this is the perfect time of year to look in the sale bins at the LSS! So much great stuff in there at a fraction of the price. They are making room for all of the new stuff from CHA. Susan and I hit two stores on Friday and were amazed at the paper we found for $0.20 and $0.25! It was a fun day!
I will leave you with a little Easter eye candy. These large eggs are so pretty that I just had to take a picture to remember them. They may be disappearing one by one far before Easter arrives!
Wishing you all a great Sunday, hopefully relaxing with family and friends!
Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
