April Retro Recipe Challenge

Hello Again!
Wow it is hard to believe that it is April and that Easter is upon us already..
Where has the time gone? 
We had another AMAZING response to last months
All That Glitters Challenge and each and every entry was brilliant!
Stay tuned for the reveal of the THREE  winners soon.

Before we reveal our next challenge please note:
We welcome all kinds of craft as entries for our challenges, from traditional layout, cards, digital layouts, art journalling and tags etc. but please remember that it is all about the Kraft!!

Your work MUST be on a KRAFT BACKGROUND (not merely mounted on Kraft) to be eligible.

**Please take the time to read the RULES before submitting your entry**
and upload your entry via the inlinkz section in our side bar.

And now for the April challenge reveal!

That's right, its time to head out to your scrap room and start cooking up a Krafty storm!
And I am sure we are bound to find many Masterchefs in amongst the entrants.

It is as simple as following the recipe in the above photo and remember to use the colour scheme and to make the Kraft shine in your layout.

Please read the INGREDIENTS AND METHOD  on the graphic above carefully
and follow the recipe for your entry to count.
It might seem a lot.. but once you gather your ingredients it's not really that hard at all.
You can add whatever else you like... but your creation must have the ingredients listed.
Due date is Midnight April 30th

Here is how the very talented Kraft Plus Design Team
interpreted this months Retro Recipe challenge.



Love how the same recipe has produced so many different layouts!

Can't wait to see what you cook up!
