Kraft+ October Challenge

Hello! I am back from a lovely weekend of scrapping with my scrappy girlfriends. I love these weekends and we all decided that we need to do them more frequently! While away I managed to complete lots of challenge layouts (and it felt good!) and I am slowly but surely going to get through them on my blog.

I thought I would start with the current Kraft+ challenge which is this:

I wasn't quite sure where to start with this one, so looked through my photo stash and came across some recent ones showing the flowers in the garden and I thought that was a great subject to use for this challenge. My page is fairly simple, but I think it suits the theme and the challenge.

I am pleased with how it turned out, the neutral colours with a splash of red. I even went on a little excursion around our building where we were scrapping to collect leaves!

I made a little feature of the leaves that I collected and added a die-cut feather from a D-lish Scraps kit. I also found this cool feather stamp in a Studio Calico set that I have, the wild and free is also from the set.

These cork thickers were the perfect finishing touch to the page. Not much to it, but I like it!

Thanks for stopping by,

Katie x

Lovely, lovely page. Sometimes I think we worry that 'simple' isn't somehow good enough...well, I do 'cos I keep wanting to ADD stuff to my pages.....but I reckon you've done just really keeps the emphasis on the photos whilst supporting them. I've already said on FB how I ADORE that pop of red - & your leaf cluster is THE perfect touch....& of COURSE, I'm glad you got this finished so you could join us at K+ this month!!!!
