Kraft It Up - June Challenge

KIU - Minimalist LO

This is my LO for Kraft it Up this month.  It was a minimalist challenge.  Probably put more than I should have on the LO, but I like they way it came out.  This is a pic I took quite a few years ago of my niece whilst on holidays.  I love this pic... she looks breathtaking!!  Used the kraft cs for background with paint splotches.  The pp's are LYB, Websters, Jenni Bowlin & Cosmo Cricket.  Used one of my fav MS punches, some lace, feathers & some netting.

Scrap the Girls - June Challenge

This is my LO for Scrap the Girls.  The criteria was birthday pics and make it bright & use 3 different alphas in your title.  Had a bit of trouble trying to find a pic that had no boys in it as her brother Luke is usually in the shots, so I found this pic and enlarged it and cut around Brittany.  I used yellow glimmermist with a doily to give it a glow like the candles then hand cut WRMK Frenzy pp's which are lovely and bright.  I punched with an EK Success border punch in red to frame the whole LO.

Thanks for taking the time to visit.
