New Month - New Challenges - KRAFT+ & the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG.

Hello there,
Welcome to March, and for us it is Autumn.. I like Autumn, the afternoons are great for getting out in the garden and hopefully the heat of summer slowly disappears..

I would like to put up my Design Team layouts for two challenges.. may as well put them up together!!

For this months challenge over at KRAFT+ is a fun one and one for you to get creative with!!

  For us to use our own handmade stamps.. there is soo much you can use for this..

I was very simple in my approach to this.. I simply used a piece of corrugated card stuck on a lid and used white gesso to stamp randomly around my page..


I then added some water color onto the back ground and then added my photo and embellishments..

 Lots of layers and fussy cutting!!


my layout..

(and in typical fashion I nearly covered up my back ground with my embellishing!! but you can still see the back ground details peeking out!! ) You can pop your layout up over on the 
KRAFT+ COMMUNITY PAGE ON FACEBOOK HERE and you can check out all the Design Team Inspiration on the KRAFT+ BLOG HERE!!!   

And I would like to share my Design Team layout for this months challenge for the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG!!

and it is..


To use the sketch, the two words Sweetest Thing or be inspired by these words and the three colors as the main colors.. 

and my layout.. some closer views..


I really like how these colors look together!!


Sweetest Thing!

I just had to use these cute photos of my Grandie!!

You can pop your layout over on the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG Show and Tell Page on Facebook HERE!!! 

Thanks for dropping by, thanks for the lovely comments you leave me to read, I appreciate each one..  Have a great week.. Until next time..
