This is what fun looks like - Kraft+

Sheesh, it's been a while between drinks! 
I have loads to update, but before I do, I want to tell you all about the new March challenge at Kraft Plus!

If, like me, you have a bit of a penchant for all things sparkly, you are going to love it! A fabulous sketch, plus something glittery. Include whatever catches the eye, be it metallics, sequins, glitter... enjoy!

Here is my page, using a kraft base and the new Simple Stories 'Say Cheese II' collection, which is available in the Sassy Scrappers store now.

I have been waiting to scrap this photo for ages and the sketch (which I've rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise) with it's strips, has finally granted me my wish! My kids were going stir crazy during a couple of days of wild weather outside and so we took to some shredding (which makes them ridiculously happy!) They had the best time just covering each other up with the shreds and throwing it - crazies!!

I've trimmed lots of little strips of paper and lined them up, imperfectly on my page. I've included some gold foil spotty kraft as well as some textured gold glitter cardstock. These were then machine stitched down. The paper ruffle was created by punching along the length of a strip of paper, then gently folding it by hand, into the ruffle shape. I then machine stitched along the top bit to secure it down and popped it behind my photo.

I have a bit of a habit when it comes to covering a dotted pattern with enamel dots or something similarly circular! On this 3x4 Sn@p card, I have added some gold rhinestones to the letter 'U' for some fun.

Lots of little details finish the page, like sequins, rhinestones, my fave glitter enamel dots, glitters stickers and rub-ons. I am sure you will have lots of fun with this challenge - we are all looking forward to seeing what you create!

Thanks so much for popping in!


Well hello there!
