Yet another page wth the March Counterfeit kit and a chance to win

I was a bit overwhelmed with this month's kit as there were so many add-ons, but I have to say I am loving using it. I think the Counterfeit Kit Challenge is one of the best online challenges I've taken part in. Sorting through my papers and matching embellishments is one of my favourite activities. (And I think this layout needs some more embellishment to add some more depth, now I look closely,)
I used lots of wood grain- inspired products on this page. Would you believe me if I told you the orange and yellow papers have been at the bottom of my stash drawer since I first started scrapbooking 5 years ago? They were part of a bumper Papermania pack which I thought was great value and went off really quickly. I have learnt my lesson since then and I rarely buy packs any more, but I think you can imagine how satisfying it was to rip into them today!
The woodgrain and bird journalling block was a free printable from Shimelle Laine 2 years ago when I took her Here, There and Everywhere class!
I loved the pattern on the BoBunny background paper when I bought it but I just couldn't make it work with anything, and then I realised it was double-sided! Et voila! I just folded the corner so you can still see the lovely pattern.
The handmade paper was a remnant from another project.

The photo was taken in France. It was a bit busy but I didn't want to crop in too close so instead I used the 'Focal Black and White' option in Picassa to focus attention on just the children and the fire.

Now, about that chance to win; Twiglet and Wipso are giving away more goodies.
Wouldn't you love to win one of these mystery prizes?
Or these beautiful handpainted buttons by Indigo Moon?

So would I, the Crafty Sisters' creations are gorgeous, so I am urging you NOT to follow the link and put yourselves in the draw because that would lessen MY chances, OK?!
