Play & Pose - Kraft It Up

Wow! Can you believe it I'm back already and have a third scrap page to share with you today. And if you wish super hard, the scrapbooking fairies might bring me back again tomorrow...
So todays layout features both my lovely children playing at the bottom of a water slide together. It was a stinky hot day and this so by far the best way to spend it!

Play & Pose

The layout design was inspired by the January Challenge over at Kraft It Up. A scrapbooking challenge blog that asks you to use kraft as your background and I LOVE kraft! It is so versatile and pairs very easily with bright and muted tones!

This months challenge was to use the above sketch along with Summer themed photos, washi tape and numbers. The numbers can be found under my journalling which are the date of the pictures. And the washi down the side serves a number of perposes, first it covers up a mistake I made (clumsy fingers dropping my ink pad onto the page, fills the challenge requirements and another might be more apparent tomorrow...

It is an all round summery layout. I wanted it to look bright and fun because it really was a simple and fantastic day out in the yard.
This is another all Bella Blvd layout (you can find another one here and a very old one here). Have I mentioned I LOVE her stuff!?! And for soo many reasons! The colours are bright, the 'whites' are white and the collections are totally interchangeable! This layout is a prime example all that. In a completely summer layout two of the main pattern papers are from a winter collection!!

I chose to keep the layout relatively flat and pop up some important features and highlight them, esp. these cheeky happy faces!
What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
Bye for now.
