Fun in the sun

I was so pleased to find I had a few pieces of Kraft paper as i was able to join in at a new challenge blog called Kraft+
In the first challenge , other than using Kraft as your base , it is a colour challenge called the Mango Breeze Colour Inspiration challenge

 This is not a mood board challenge, but this is such a great picture  I found myself being  inspired to make a beachy theme layout using the suggested colours . 

We have wonderful beaches in South Africa , and this is a beach very close to home where we take our dogs for a run in the early morning when the beach is deserted. You can see how much fun Chuck is having , and thats why i tried to give the layout a 'fun' feel.

I saw these little twirls of paper on a layout on pinterest (sorry did not note the blog name) and think they are great to frame elements.

I used quite a few of my little embellishments sent to me by my sponsor in the Netherlands ( she knows who she is )

I also used one of my precious flairs the @ bought at Scrapbook studio 
in Jeffreys Bay

There is still plenty of time to play along with the first challenge at  Kraft+

So get Krafting
