And here is my layout using 7 of the Evidence clues, and 2 of the Testimony clues!
I used the cute papers from Hazel and Ruby which came FREE in the Scrapbooking Memories mag. there's some Francheville enamel dots, Heidi Swapp stencils and colour shine, kaszazz stencil and Jo Sonja's texture paste. A Kaszazz stamp for my title and I have to mention that I have used 2 elements from my very first pocket letter I received from my pocket letter pal, Evelyn. (They were, washi tape and the cute little stamped banner!) TFL

Kraft Plus, August Challenge!!!

Hello, well the months are flying by at a rapid rate!! We have been bombarded with a string of family and friends visiting us, which is really nice, but it's also nice to take a big breath when they are gone and sit down and get into some crafty challenges. I'm playing along with Kraft Plus again, and here is the mood board and theme for August!----ZENTANGLING!!!

This one puts me a little outside my comfort zone, as I really don't have alot of patience for doodling. I recently picked up a book from the library to gain some inspiration, but have to say I lost interest fairly quickly. However, I did enjoy the challenge, and I'm quite happy with how my flowers and love hearts turned out.
I've used papers by: Amy Tan, Kaiser and MME, stickers by MME & Papercraft, Envelope and cardstock from Kaszazz, Journal pens, Sharpies & Stampin write marker.
