IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS - Single Page Layout
(Kraft+ September Challenge)

When I saw the September challenge a couple weeks ago on the Kraft+ blog,
I was totally inspired and frankly in love! I couldn't pass up the chance to play along!

The Kraft+ challenge is 'What's the buzz?'.  Find out more about it right HERE.

I of course started off with a kraft background, using a kraft patterned paper
from Simple Stories.  I misted some yellow (inspired by the bees obviously)
on it and added a lot of stamping in dark brown ink. 

As soon as I knew I was going to participate in this challenge,
I lined up some embellishments, starting with a very pretty Cuts2luv badge and
these lovely little chipboard bees from The Dusty Attic.  How perfect, right?

My favorite part of the creative process is always picking out the flowers! 
 For this layout, I opted for some Prima and 49 and Market blooms.

I cannot say that I'm a big fan of bees (yes, bee stings hurt!),
but I have to say that they make for awesome inspiration and beautiful art.

I'm so happy on how this page turned out. I hope you like it as well.

Thank you Kraft+ for challenging me!
