Kraft It Up
This month your challenge is to create a layout on KRAFT/KRAFT PATTERNED PAPER using a "TIME LINE"
You will need to use a minimum of 3 photos (any size) and journaling, telling the story of what your "time line" is about.
This could be a collection of photos of your child playing a sport, dancing, or a school carnival, it could be a layout documenting certain events in your life, when you had children, bought houses, what you do in a day or month...
Inspiration can be drawn from anywhere as long as your time line is in chronological order, ie from start to finish...
Scraplift any of the design team creations- i choose the layout by Bec....just loved the design basically and thought it would work well with my photo's.

Workout #45 ' Around The House'
Have you ever stopped to think about what items you have around the house to help aid your scrapbook creativity? There are hundreds of items you can use either directly on your layout (ex: a tag that came off a new piece of clothing) or to aid you in creating a technique on your layout (ex: run your sons hot wheels car through your ink pad and then run it on your paper for a great tire effect). Lets see what you can find around the house to make this layout awesome!
