Oh How Sweet
(Kraft + October Blast from the Past challenge)

A few months ago, I was commissioned by a work colleague to create a mini 8x8 album for her new grandson.  After much procrastination, I got around to finishing it over the weekend and I even grabbed the opportunity to play along with a fabulous challenge.

As you may have guessed by the kraft background paper, I was inspired by the Kraft + challenges, and this month's challenge is A Blast from the Past!  Click HERE for the details!

I loved this challenge as it made me dig into my stash and purge... but in a creative way! I used old papers from Simple Stories, eyelets, velum tag and stars, buttons, ribbon and a brad. I almost got around to using the entire list on the Kraft+ board!

You can see here that I cut out some stars from the vellum tags.  And look at those adorable little wooden star buttons!

I was lucky to be able to create with such a precious photo of little Jep who no doubt makes his grandmother (my colleague) very proud!

Thank you Kraft+ for the inspiration!!
