Dare to Dream - Kraft it Up

I managed an entire day to myself to scrapbook.  My husband took my boys to shoot guns (prep for hunting season) and to a baseball game.  I didn't answer the phone and I didn't answer the door.  I did manage to finally get dressed 5 minutes before my husband got home (he he).

All that time and I managed quite a few pages, but a couple of them are for later reveals...

First up...  Kraft it Up!  For their challenge we had to use Kraft paper (obviously) and layers.  I struggle with layers, but I guess that is why they call them challenges, right?

Anyway, here is what I came up with...

This is were the layering came in.  To add texture, I cut fringes in to dotted paper and then stappled on the embellies.

This snake skin stamp was a dream to work with.  I normally have a hard time getting a stamp with that much detail to look good, but much to my surprise it was perfect!
