Kraft Plus Handwriting Challenge

Well, I have always kept a journal, been a journaler, love Art Journaling, letter writing etc. But when it comes to my scrapbook layouts, I get so carried away with the photos and the design and the pretty stuff, that I never seem to save alot of room for journaling!!! So, am I ever thankful to Kraft Plus for setting this challenge this month!!! I think this has to be the most handwriting I have ever fit onto one layout, and used it as the background. Feeling very proud!
Here's the prompt from Kraft+


And here's my layout, showing a photograph of myself as a 4 yr old, with my Mum and her friend, and their enormous BEEHIVE HAIRDOS!!!


















I started my background off with some texture paste & a  circle stencil, mixed with paint and it just evolved from there. I've used a little washi, which I picked up at Harvey Norman, and the majority of papers/PL cards are from Simple Stories. There's also some enamel dots from Francheville, chipboard title from Bella and Scrap Matrix and a bit of Heidi Swapp ephemera.
