My first ever kit!!!!!!

So I recently decided that I wanted to try my hand at kit making..I've neglected all my CT duties to get this done, lol (sorry bout that). This kit was inspired by an amazing tube at http://www.picsfordesign.com/ called "I am a Panda Bear" (here). My girl Amy over at Amy & Leah's Gimptastic Tuts (here) said she needed a kit to go with the tube..so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to buckle down and get something done once and for all! I hadn't intended on going public with it when I started out, but I'm quite happy with how it turned out, so I thought maybe one or two crazy people would like it too, lmao. This is a tagger sized kit :o)
