Lucky Stars
(Kraft + May Challenge)

I so love working with kraft colored products, including paper, so any chance I get to play along with the Kraft+ challenges, I am totally happy!  

This is my layout inspired by the May challenge!

This is the wild, fun and colorful image that inspired my creation!
Click HERE for all the details on this Kraft+ challenge!

Needless to say, the first thing that screamed out at me when looking at this image was the cool hip blue convertible.  I knew I had the perfect picture for it, of my nieces posing in this stage vintage car at Walt Disney World.  I fussy cut the car from the picture and made it pop out of my page.

I was also inspired by the bright colours which I thought looked awesome against the kraft background and some black and gold accents.  I wanted my layout to be a celebration of life!

I covered the chipboard stars with Imagine Ink 14karat embossing powder.

Look at these happy little super stars!

I have to admit, I chucked 2 first attempt at this layout in the garbage - I just couldn't get the background to my satisfaction.  They say "Third time's a charm", well, it certainly turned out to be true for me.  I love how my 3rd attempt turned out!

Thank you Kraft+ for the inspiration!!
