Personally as I have said before, I love to have variety in my kits. Maybe thats why I love Marias kits so much. She does recolor flowers and thats fine but her kits are huge because she adds other things besides 1 flower in 6 different colors. I too think that spending the money for a kit where it says 9 elements included and its really 3 elements recolored is not right. The package should say 3 elements recolored in 3 colors so we know.
