This month's challenge at Kraft It Up was a colour challenge to use kraft, white, black and green:
I love this combination and knew I had to scrap the photos of the
Grand Canyon from our trip in July. I
grabbed a double page sketch from Sketch Support (number 12) as my base. If you don't know
about this website, it's fantastic, especially because they give you a
printable format that includes dimensions, placement information and ideas for
altering the sketch. All you need to do is click on the appropriate link on the right hand side under Printable Sketches.

I decided to print the journalling on the computer, something that I don't often do, but it meant that I could write more in the space. I do plan on doing another layout of the California Condors that we saw, and maybe the fossils too, but thought I should get the main information onto this page.
I had just recently purchased the flowers (Tyed-dyed gypsiesby Petaloo) at the Craft Show with nothing particular in mind. They were perfect for this layout. I found some other green button flowers in my embellishment stash, as well as some brads. The laser cut chipboard is from a2z scraplets. The branch die cut was made with a Memory Box die, and the little kraft cards are from Collections Elements. It was then just a matter of moving them around till I liked the design.
Till next time, happy days!
