Here is my take on this month's challenge over at Kraft +, All That Glitters. I love working with Kraft & when I saw this photo of my eldest daughter all ready for her Year 7 graduation at her previous school, I loved the way the colours just worked. I love using this technique of the punched strips of paper, so easy but so effective. I have to thank Linda Eggleton for this inspiration in a recent copy of Scrapbooking Memories. I was heart-broken though when one of my favourite punches broke half way through the making of this layout - now I must hunt for another one ;) My plan is to make a Project Life page for the other side, to use up the rest of the photos - you can't not put in the one of the kids in the limo! :)

Product used:

Cardstock: Kraft
Paper: Scraps from my stash including Prima, Kaisercraft & Bo Bunny
Embellishments: Washi tape, Kaisercraft pearls, generic acrylic stamp, Thickers - Rockabye, Prima flock alphas, Prima Say It In Crystals rhinestone flourish, paper doily, twine, acetate hearts, metal embellishment, Distress Ink - Tea Dye, metal slide

Thanks for stopping by,

Tanya X
