February Challenge : Coastal Chic

Welcome to the February Challenge Reveal!

Before we reveal what the challenge is for this month we wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who got on their bikes during January and peddled along with the

On Your Bike challenge.
What an amazing array of entries we received!
The DT are busy voting and the deserved winners will be announced soon.
I do not envy their job!

Now for the February Challenge!
We like to mix things up a bit here at K+ and February's challenge is no exception.
Coastal Chic

Criteria: Kraft + Sketch + Colour.
(Black and White can be added)

Thank you to Em Stafrace from The Nifty Pixel for creating another amazing sketch for us to play along with!
Make sure not to miss out on her own layout using this sketch.. which she has made available as a Freebie Sketch Template for all of you Digi Scrappers.. scroll down to the sponsors section for the link :)

Please note.. this does not  have to be a beach related layout!

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.
