Let's get Krafty!

Good Morning,

It's been a long time since I've blogged & I haven't been round to comment as my laptop still has not be repaired, I must get it sorted as I'm having withdrawal symptons!!
I also went away to Rome, it was lovely to see a bit of sunshine! The way they drive was a bit scary, & crossing the roads was just go for it and hope for the best.  I came home absolutly shattered, managed to go to work but have not had the energy to do anything in the evenings. Made myself tonight because...........

We have a new challenge starting today over at MAWTT. This week Janice is the hostess and she has chosen us a great theme

So we want to see your creations including kraft paper

We also have a super prize for you this week from Saturated Canary
The DT got to choose an image from the store which I found very difficult as there are some great images

Image Sponsor image - Roses are Red, Violets are Blue
Colouring medium - Copics & chalks
Emossed paper - Dainty dots from spellbinders
Sentiment - Computer generated
Circular die - Spellbinders
Roses - torn circle die rolled using a quilling tool
Flowers double layer of a punch
Leaves - part of a MB die
Viva pearls - flower centres & dots round image
All flowers & leaves were coloured with copics to match image.
