Kraft Outlet Challenge #35

at Kraft Outlet. This week the challenge is to come up with a "Grand" theme (in honor of Grandparent's Day). The Design Team have given some "Grand" inspiration and Guest Designer Debbie Carriere's blog is certainly worth viewing... "Grand" work there!
My entry is all about the
Penmaker's ancestry... His Grandpa, his Dad and little Penmaker...


For a small card, I used a 
lot of papers... white and Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock, Black Magic Core'dinations cardstock, plus several papers from the Lost & Found Two Blush 6x6 Designer Paper Pad. All the edges were distressed with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser and Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


If you look in the field in the
photo, you'll see grandpa's horse Maude. He plowed his fields to plant his crops with that horse.


Here I used a Grungy Tag
from the Designers Special Prim Tag Assortment and a Bo Bunny Timepiece Trinket.


I finished the inside with
the Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock and some of the scraps of the Blush DP.
Hope you've enjoyed this trip
back in time and a visit with my husband's family. It's a blessing to share them with you.
Have a "Grand" day!
