Kraft+ January Challenge

Hi, I have finally found the time to do a layout for the January Kraft+ challenge - they are always inspirational and I find challenging.  Kraft is never the easiest to do and it really gets you thinking.  I have scrapped some old photos of my husband deciding it was a good idea to challenge my son to a ride off on the BMX Track - not the wisest idea as my son raced BMX and my husband hadnt been on a push bike for years!!!

This is the challenge if you still have time to spare this weekend

Thanks for stopping by and til next time - Happy Crafting :)

DT Layout for The Scrapbook Boutique

Hi, today I am up on The Scrapbook Boutique and sharing a layout  I have created a layout using the wonderful 7 Dots Cotton Candy Collection - this is one of my favourites.

I have stamped around the photo mat with the stamp that co-ordinates with the collection

I have used 13 arts Ayeeda Mist - Sap Green and Ayeeda Ink - Green

The chipboard has been embossed with Ranger Fine Black Embossing powder

I applied crackle paste through a Heidi Swap Stencil 

Art stones have been scattered around the layout.

Thanks for stopping by and I have linked the products used below.
Until next time - Happy Crafting :)

More than Words - January Challange

HI there, I managed to find time over the Xmas/New Year break to play with my new 7 Dots Writers Block Collection and the More than Words Challenge.

Instead of a "party"celebrate layout I have chosen a photo of myself and dear friend  - celebrating my new glasses - not really a celebration cos it is signified the beginning of getting old!!!

For the bling aspect there is gold foil bling on the die cut glasses and glitter around the layout.
