Vintage Memories (Kraft+ January Challenge)

I took a little hiatus from blogging for 2 weeks it seems, but I am back again today to share this fun vintage layout featuring a beautiful photo of my mom as a young girl riding her bike!

If you're familiar with the most prominent challenge blogs out there (and a lover of kraft!), you probably have guessed which challenge inspired this layout.  This month, Kraft+ is taking us on a creative ride and is asking for projects featuring a bike.  Click HERE for all the details!

I really love this challenge and couldn't pass it up, especially since I had the perfect photo for it!

I used some very bright and fun patterned papers from Simple Stories' Carpe Diem collection as well as this cute wooden bike from Kaisercraft.

I did some stamping, misting and stenciling on the kraft background.

Look at those side mirrors on my mom's bike!  Now that is an impressive ride!

Thank you for dropping by!
