Happy - Kraft+ March challenge

Hello Scrappy friends and welcome.  
This evening, by the skin of my teeth, 
I’m sharing a layout for the Kraft+ challenge.
Thanks Sandra and your amazing team for this inspirational challenge site.
The challenge is to use Kraft plus, sketch, glitter, e.g. gold, sequins, bling. 
to see what the Design Team have created for your inspiration.
I chose to use a gilding technique which I learnt
at a class with the super talented
Louise Nelson.
It's a bit of a messy process, but I love the result.



  1. A beautiful , happy layout Helen. Your little granddaughter sure does look like she would leave a sparkle where ever she goes. I love what you wrote and love the happiness in the layout. How lucky to do a workshop with Lou , looks like a fun technique
