May Kraftboard over at Kraft+

Hello Everyone!
May Kraft board challenge at Kraft +
[The Boys Room}
I was inspired by the colours,( the colour tones said vintage to me, that's why I scrapped this photo of my fathers bedroom. He shared with his 3 other brother and oh if those walls could talk I'm pretty sure there would be lots of stories to be told), the flowers, the dangling beads and twine ( I used embroidery thread and let it  dangle )
Something a bit different for me again, had a bit of fun....until I used the remember stamp....I sat for quite a few minutes pondering the will I, wont I, will I. I decided yes, had a practice and it worked perfectly, feeling quite confident I inked up the stamp placed it ever so gently on the layout,....yep right place, then gave it a firm press, peeled it back slowly to reveal that only half had worked....Oh NO!....inked it up again, lined it up ever so carefully and pressed down again...guess what it  did exactly the same thing again. Feeling over it by then I slapped some more ink on and sat it back down and presses firmly....and if you look closely you can see that it has been stamped 3 times because although I tried to line it up, I was always slightly out. ...adds to the grungy distressed look I suppose.  I was disappointed and was planning another page for the challenge but Mum assured me it was okay. So here it is.
If you have some free time over the weekend, why not try this gorgeous Kraft board.
Pop over to the Kraft + blog and see all the amazing design teams inspirational creations.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful weekend.

It really is FUN to visit you 'cos I'm never sure which style I'm gonna have dished up!! Love the sort of boy vintage you've got going....the whole across the top of the page thing is GREAT...fab take on our K+ challenge.....& honestly, if you hadn't SAID about the stamp....I would have thought it was meant to be like that!!! Your Mum was right:):) Thanks for joining in!!

totally hearing you as another nervous stamper.
But your Mum is right. It does add to the vintage feel.

This is such a stunning page Janice that I didn't even notice the stamped three times 'Remember' until I read what you had written. I do feel your pain as I have had this happen many times. Yours does not detract from your stunning layout at all. Thanks so much for playing and I am glad you posted this one. :-)
