Kraft It Up September Challenge

I love this earthy, natural palette that is the basis for this month's challenge at Kraft It Up!

I thought I would channel the amazingly talented queen of minimalist scrapping, Louise Nelson, and try and do a really simple layout. I often tend to fiddle too much with my layouts and add too much stuff when I should really just leave them be, so this style is a bit challenging for me!

And I never scrap photos of myself, so this is a bit new for me too! Especially photos of me smiling where my braces are so obvious. Two and a half years and the end is still not quite in sight... but hopefully after Christmas I will have beautiful straight teeth!

The feather is from Words or Whatever, covered with a bit of white ink and embossing powder, and the alphas are Amy Tangerine thickers.
