January Sum up and Kraft It Up

Hello Blogging friends.  Almost the end of January and I think 
I've just about returned to the land of normality.  Shame, because I think I prefer holidays!
We've had an awesome month of holidaying around the countryside.  
We spent 15 nights camping on the Murray River near Echuca.
Here are a few of my Instagram pictures.

We came home for a few days - just enough time to unpack, do about 20 loads of washing (I'm not exaggerating there) and repack again before heading for more camping this time on the stunning Great Ocean Road at Lorne.  

While packing I managed to squeeze in a small tote of scrappy supplies amongst the sleeping bags 
and tent. ;)  Everyone else was relaxing with what they enjoy most so I figured I'd do the same. 

I decided to scrap the current Kraft It Up challenge only problem is I didn't take any
Kraft card stock!! So after a little brainstorming I came up with the idea of using the inside of a carton of beer. ;)
Perfect kraft colour and corrugated as well.  Bonus!
Here's a picture of my background coming together. 

Here's my page. 

The Challenge.


I've posted some close up images below.
Number stickers from a 12x12 sticker sheet from the Studio Calico Range, Printshop.

Flair buttons and adhesive cork shapes also from the Printshop range.

I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine sprays to colour the background.  You can see some of the washi here as well as a border around the corner of my papers.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Sorry for the overly long post.
