Woop Woop-Counterfeit Kit jelly roll

or should I say tootise roll???  either way, I'm a scrapping roller with my March kit!  I'm on layout numero tres (3)!!  And since I'm going to a crop tomorrow afternoon (date with hubby in the evening) I hope to get 3 more done!  So, I know it looks like the same pictures, it's just that they are from the same vacation and I'm determined to get Florida 2010 scrapped before Florida 2012....LOL...so anyway, here's layout # 3:
I did dig in my stash JUST to use my SA Tim Holtz stamps (see the Postcard writing at the bottom and the cute sun at the top.)
then, one more thing...I was in my local scrapbook store and saw these by JilliBean Soup:

well, being on a budget, I truly loved them, but refused to pay $ 5 for 4 ...so, using my counterfeit kit, a punch, and some sewing pins, I made my own!!! Punch 2 shapes, add dollop of glue on one, add your pin in the middle and hold it together till it sticks-use when dry...TA-DA!!! Cost?? Pennies...I had the pins left in a drawer from who knows where so...and the punches I got from FREECYCLE-yup, a lady (kie 2 miles from my house) put 15 punches on Freecycle and I took 8 and am RAKing the other 7 to my friend Amber for cardmaking!  I'm scoring all around this week** Woop Woop!!!

This is wonderful. I love your strip of goodies down the left side. And I so love that you made your own pins. They are fantastic. I may have to CASE them.
