March Challenge @ Kraft It Up!

I am just loving using Kraft cardstock. It's soooo versatile.

While blog hopping the other week I came across the Kraft It Up! blog. Each month they have a very simple challenge where the criteria is to use Kraft on a LO and one other thing. This month it is to use a mixed alpha title. Very simple.

Well last night I finished mine. I had this started before last weekend and then got engrossed in the ScrapTherapy CyberCrop so finally got it finished tonight.

I have been wanting to scrap these pics of Ethan eating his first ever lollypop after visiting Father Christmas at the local shopping centre. I have also been dying to paint a background. So why not combine the two.




I have used Kraft as my background paper. Painted it with yellow paint first and then black. Mounted the middle photo on black bazzil and raised it up on pop dots.
I have used some chippie Thickers and painted them the same yellow as the background and teamed them with some black foam thickers. I finished off with some KaiserCraft rubon brackets and handwritten journalling.


Take Care
