Love Me Not!

August 1st already and this month there has been a little shake up here in Master Forger Land.
Due to my June birthday I have moved up the reveal list and am no longer the top layer of Lisa's Lesley/Leslie sandwich!
(Lisa is now Susanne on toast!)

Sherri, a previous Master Forger and our Guest Designer for this month
 started the hop HERE
and then you will have found little me, LesleyG by hopping on from Stephanie (usually last) who came next.

You will already have seen the kits to choose from (if you started at the beginning) and I decided to go with the scrapbook kit

 Well this month it has been difficult to find photos of the individual items and therefore my
usual reveal layout has taken a month off.
I will hopefully back to normality for the month of September.

So, what's in my kit?

Firstly there is no coloured card stock as I just don't use, if you know me and scrapbooking, my backgrounds are generally white so I will add that in as and when required.

My patterned papers...

My homemade transparency diamonds along with a few other bits so as not to waste any vellum...

and not forgetting the negative...

and I made my own cloud mask using acetate and, yes you guessed it, my Cameo
(terrible photo!)

I then added in some twine, some wooden hearts, a few stamps and a doily and if I need any extras along the way there may be a few additions from the card or project life kit.
I will also add cut alphas when required.

Then was the difficult naming ceremony - even though this kit is smaller than my usual monthly counterfeits, this is one kit that I really found hard to pull together and that's when the name was born
"Love Me Not!"
I hope I have more fun playing with it than I did creating it.
I hope you'll pop back during the month to find out!

So now it's time to move over to Toucan Scraps where you'll probably find a digi kit from Angela
before you go and IF you haven't already, why not LIKE us on Facebook and FOLLOW our Pinterest Boards.

Thanks for popping by today.
