Destination : Grad Party

It has been a while since I scrapped on kraft background but I made this for October Afternoon and posted it on their blog today! :)

I scrapped the photo I took of my youngest just before she went to her Graduation Party last year. It was a huge deal for all Year 6 students as they end their Primary School years and move on to Secondary School. I'd never realized how difficult it is to find an age appropriate dress for a 12 year old! The dress shopping took for-e-ver :)
I started my layout with a tag and layered pieces of patterned papers here and there on top of one another to build a cluster as my photo mat. I didn't cut into any new piece of patterned papers for this layout. Everything came from my October Afternoon scraps bag. I'm still very smitten withTreasure Map and Saturday Mornings as you can see.

I also picked some bits and pieces from other collections to complete my layout. The Snap Capsfrom Daily Flash Snapshots and All Boy are perfect this this page. I finished my layout with some stamping with the 2010's decade stamp and Travel Roller stamp.
Creating on kraft with the beautiful colors from October Afternoon is so fun! If you haven't been scrapping on kraft for a while, or have not tried kraft at all, I strongly urge you to do so :) Go get krafty! Tag me on Instagram @sashafarina if you play along! :)
