Kraft it up challenge September

Kraft it up suggests:
Create a layout using Kraft and this image for inspiration...
Remember you can take anything out of the image, the banner, the colours, patterns etc...
As soon as I saw the image, I knew which photo I was going to use of Hayden in blue and Lachlan in red.  I have been wanting to use a page from a book, too, and I think the Beatrix Potter illustration featuring a boy in red and a boy in blue, was perfect.  Thanks to my prize from Susan Longman, I could mist, make my first ever banner, and print my stars. I sprayed the page with the banner and matting in place, then moved them to have some kraft showing.   Other embellishments were from my first ever swap, so thanks ladies if you recognise your handiwork. 
I have since given up trying to get Hayden's shorts from that play in the mud clean!


  1. Lovely LO Alannah!
