KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE ~ APRIL 2018 ~ Get those Blues Down!

Hey there my Crafty (& Krafty) Friends.
Yup! I've rejoined my FAVE Challenge Blog, KRAFT PLUS....the lovely 'boss lady' over there,
Sandra, well - let's say she's one persuasive girl!
ANYWAYS, here's this month's challenge:
criteria: KRAFT + Follow the recipe to cook up a fantastic K+ creation. 

For lots of inspiration in the different ways of interpreting this challenge, pop on over to the KRAFTR PLUS blog post HERE.
This is what I did:
Something old is the photo, of course, from my 1st marriage...
& the tag is a genuine vintage tag I got from an auction house on holiday in Launceston, about 8 years ago now!
I've some hidden journaling. It was my 1st marriage. It's private stuff! But important...
Something new is my BRAND NEW sewing machine - it's the 1st time I used it, on this LO! 

Something borrowed is the sketch from Stuck?! Sketches

You can find the sketch HERE.
And of course, the something blue is obvious. I had a great time sticking and stapling that blue tissue paper down. I did NOT use my sewing machine near the glue. I KNOW how bad glue is for sewing machines. It's what my last one died of, methinks!!!
Yup, that's a bit of gold paint on the tissue paper, & a cute Funky Flairs flair tucked in!
I know these photos aren't the highest of quality.
I'd put my DSLR camera 'away'....looks like I'll have to drag it out of - well,
the place I put it! We HAVE moved....
And the latest news... my younger son has just gone back to the USA for work.
This makes me sad - but the world, thank GOODNESS, is a much smaller
place these days. Here's us last week:
The other thing I've been doing is 'practising' for the ALI EDWARDS
WEEK IN THE LIFE event, to be held in May.
It will be my first time joining in :)
Trying to take selfies that are a bit different. Like this:
Hope I haven't peaked too early, LOL!
And yes, the weather is STILL like summer not autumn here.
Not that I'm complaining!

Anyways, thanks for looking & as always ~ Happy Scrapping,
