Design Team Project -Scrap Our Stash- Sketch with Stash Challenge #1

  It's that time again... a NEW Challenge is up at:
Scrap Our Stash
The very 1st Sketch with Stash Challenge!
For this one we had to use the sketch provided AND mixed alphabets for titling.
My layout is of our (now annual) trip to the place we had our year-and-a-day-before-the-wedding Celtic Betrothal Handfasting ceremony. On our Wedding Anniversary we go to the same stone we stood on for the swearing that day and we bring a stone from our garden to leave behind. September 25th 2012 was our 2nd Anniversary and we took these pictures on our visit that day. 
We are moving in less than 3 weeks (YEAH!) so almost everything is now packed including ALL my letter stickers so I used some Word Rub-Ons that were still hanging around and an acetate title overlay for my mixed alphas. 
Papers are from the CTMH 'Key to my Heart' page set.
Flowers are Prima. 
Small Flower has some $1 store pearls in the center. 
Washi Tape, Ribbon, Gems, Acetate and Rub-Ons are unknown to me stash sh-tuff.
So POP on over the Scrap Our Stash to join the challenge and chance to WIN!
The Challenge:
1. Create a NEWLY created layout using this sketch:
2. And because we are all about digging into our stash....  
You will need to dig into your alpha stickers, thickers, etc. and create a mixed alpha title or journal.

Scrap Our Stash -Design Team Project- Challenge #1 ~ Kraft It Up ~

FIRST challenge on the SHINY *NEW* Scrap Our Stash Blog... there be prizes...
Head on over to take the challenge!
~Kraft It Up~
Create a LAYOUT and at least 50% of the products you use on your layout must be Kraft paper and/or embellies.   
Oh, and that's not it!  
You will have to dig further into your stash because...
you must include 3+ metal embellishments..  
You can mix or match the metal embellishments as long as there are 3 or more on you layout.

Someone said metal... *my* brain went Steampunk, as always! 
Time to scrap that stash of photos I keep trying to work through. These pictures were taken when we volunteered to help out Steampunk Ottawa at our local museum's Victorian Holidays event. 
Background paper, Simple Stories,  is kraft-y colored though not actual Kraft paper. 
The foreground paper is printed Kraft paper, also Simple Stories. 
Flower were punched from a paper bag with a Stampin' Up! Punch, then spritzed with Red Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, another lil spritz of Green under the family photo. 
 Felt holly is from AVON, gems from the $ store.
Metal in the title-work, $ store 'frame' and word.
Sprinkle of Tim Holtz gears here and there.
As well as the rows of alternating Keepsake Craft red and green mini brads. 
...and Yes, I poked myself a few times doing that many brads! lol


Time to dig into your stash and get your Kraft On!  You have until March 29th to get your entry linked up!  We would love to have you join us for this challenge! 
Check back each day for more DT inspiration for our Kraft It Up Challenge!
