WARNING - It's a BIG One!!!

Good morning and welcome to September - yikes - September!!!
How was Julene today?

That means another kit to forge over at the Counterfeit Kit Blog and this month there is a choice of a few from
Citrus Twist Kits 
It also means we have another Guest Designer to share with you...
has some gorgeous creations over on her blog and I challenge you not to be inspired by her work!
 So, back to the kit - knowing that most, or probably ALL, my layouts in September are going to be holiday related I have chosen the July Kit Sail Away along with ALL the add-ons (another yikes!)

Just look at all those delights that I need to shop my stash for....

Firstly is the plain card stock and that is ever so easy for me because I'm not putting any in this month.
Whenever I add plain to my kit (unless it's white) it always goes back into my stash at the end of the month, so why bother?

Now, patterned is a different story altogether and here's what I have decided I want in my kit...

 and anything that coordinated with it!!!
That's 40 pieces of 12x12.
 With all that paper I'm definitely going to need lots of alphas...

and stamps...

washi tape...

and embellishments...
 I also forged a couple of things...

My tutorial for the polaroids will be blogged on the 8th of this month.
The cute playing cards were made using Photoshop, printed onto A4  cream card then cut 9cm by 6cm.
You can find the sheet HERE if you want to make your own too. 

 So here is my MASSIVE September Kit "Road Trip"

I created about 12 pages from my small August kit, I think September is going to be a record!!!

Will Lisa's kit be as big as mine? Hop on over to her blog to find out what delights she has in her kit this month...
