Countefeit Kit Challenge- March - and Passing on the Book

Wow, This amzing kit from StudioCalico  had 4 (yes, 4) add-on kits and they are all gorgeous - not surprisingly, they are also all sold out so it has to be counterfeit!.
I decided to try and find a page kit for each one. That's 5 page kits in all! And to gather photos to go with them ready for my crop next weekend.
The main 'Into the Woods' kits is a riot of woodgrain and spring colours. Here is the original full of loveliness from  American Crafts, Cosmo Cricket and My Mind’s Eye :


This is my countefeit kit. I don't have a bee, but I'll hunt the net for one to print off:


The first add-on I attempted to rip off was this one, 'Sunny Clearing':

I will enjoy creating with this one, though it is only loosely inspired by the original:


I had less success with Babbling BrookWildflower and Mossy Knoll individually but I managed a couple of composite kits by just matching the papers and finding embellishments which fit with my photos. How I would love to win that vintage ephemera kit the Counterfeit Challenge is giving away this month, as I have nothing like that!


Here are my page kits, with photos to use on them. I haven't sorted out any letters yet. I might need to go and buy some before the weekend, anyway:



I will go over tothe Counterfeit Kit site and Mr Linky this now. Looking forward to seeing what other people have done with such a huge kit to choose from.
Don't forget today is your last chance to apply for Pass the Book - (Where Women Create), otherwise it will go to Mel because the other 2 commenters have both read it!
