Kraft It Up challenge

Woohoo! I managed to get this months Kraft It Up challenge done today!!
Seeing as I spent almost the WHOLE day on the phone to a pack of morons yesterday trying to work out computer issues....grrrrrrrrrrrrr
I decided to reward myself with some creative time :)

This months challenge is a colour combo:

To be honest the layout turned out 100% different to when I had a bit of time to push paper and photos around yesterday afternoon and the ideas I had in my head last night. I completely turned the whole thing around, upside down to what I originally had planned to be honest and I'm really happy with the way it turned out.
Sometimes if you're not happy with the way something is coming together, I think it's best to walk away and come back to it later. This usally ALWAYS works for me.
Anyway...I scrapped some cool photos I took of Michael blowing bubbles on a family picnic last month. He really is just a big kid at heart :)

Wanting to stay with the bubble/circle theme I used a funky bubble border designed by Leeann Pearce and made it the focal embellishment. I painted it, then stamped on it with some cool circle stamps then used mesh and patterned paper behind some of the circles for added texture and dimension. I then used a couple of the circles as journalling spots. Very versatile piece of chipboard indeed!

Hope you like it!
