Kraft + Plus March Challenge

Happy Tuesday and welcome back to my blog. As I've said before, the beginning of the month is always a busy one for we of the papercrafting world. Last month I joined in on the very first challenge for a brand new Challenge Blog - Kraft Plus.  The very talented Sandra Wallace and her amazing design team are back again this month for another fun challenge.

The reason why I'm enjoying the Kraft Plus challenges is because they don't set too many rules. I like the inspiration to get my mojo flowing and then I can follow my own style. Even though this is a sketch challenge, I decided to turn it on its side to accommodate the photos that I wanted to use.

And what girl doesn't love a chance to add some bling/glitter to her pages?! My title #happydays is from Dusty Attic and the XOXO (which I've added gold glitter to) is from WOW. Doilies, spotty bag, Flair, black cabochons, sequined bow, gold arrow & black sequins are from D-lish Scraps. the gold Flair & ribbon are from Studio Fourteen40. I also used a couple of Kaisercraft Kraft tags to add a bit more layering.

These photos were taken in a photo booth at a recent wedding that my DD and partner attended.  I love them and couldn't wait to use them on a project.

Thanks for looking and feel free to leave a comment if you wish :)
