This is my layout for this month's Kraft it Up Challenge

It was a sketch challenge. I had intended to make the photos shaped as in the sketch, but they didn't really work, so I opted for the safer square/rectangle option instead. Since the photos had such bright colours in them, I wanted to mimic that in the patterned papers I chose. I love the bright colours on the kraft background.  I added some glimmer mists in green, blue and red as well as a ticket, some washi tape, ribbon, jute and coloured staples. I am pleased with the final result. This layout is a great reminder of a fun experience on our Bali holiday.

I'll leave you with a couple of close ups.

Till next time, happy days.
