Kraft Plus July Challenge - Mustard Explosion

So this is winter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is freeeeeeeezing cold here in Melbourne, and quite miserable. There is one good thing about that, I don't have to feel guilty if I am inside scrapping on my days off :)
So that is what I did last weekend, scrapped all weekend - guilt free.
One of the layouts I did was this one for Kraft +. I took a little while to think about this one, it had me stumped for a little while. I do however love what I have created. This is the challenge:
I chose these gorgeous photos of my nephew Ethan holding some ducklings. I have been waiting for the right challenge to come along, and finally it did. I splattered yellow acrylic paint over my background, then stamped with subtle tones using a Scrap FX numbers stamp, then a Stampin up stamp with the word adorable, coz that's what these photos are. I took inspiration from the ball of twine, the heart and the circle fruit bowl. I added some string behind the photos, then used a 2Crafty chipboard piece behind the matting. Other circles on the layout include the buttons and the naught.  I added a little extra colour with the blue, which is drawn from the photos. I used some of Charms Creations latest naughts and crosses embellies, plus one of her hearts. This was another fun challenge to do, even if it did take some thinking about. 
Thanks for looking at my layout and any comments you may leave. 
Soft and Cuddly
