My First Page for the Kraft it up Design Team :)

Here is my very first challenge on the DT for Kraft it Up. I used a travel themed Kraft background paper. It is quite busy so I needed to use bright colours under my photos to make them 'pop'. Most of my papers and tags/labels are from Kaisercraft. The blue paper is October Afternoon. I sprayed and blotted red spray ink over my background to complement the red in Benji's shirt.
I love these photos of Benji asleep on our 15 hour flight from Sydney to San Francisco. Before we decided to travel to the UK to visit my mum I was worried that 8 very long flights would be too much for a little 3 year old but Benji was absolutely amazing. He slept, snacked and watched kids movies for the entire flight. He never once complained or asked to get out of his seat (except to visit the bathroom). He only had a melt down on one occasion and that was when our flight was delayed for 24 hours and we had to wake him from a deep sleep at 2am to evacuate the plane. Can't blame him for that one - in fact I almost joined him!! I especially love the first photo where he is watching TV with the big headphones just missing his ears :)
Go check out the challenge at KIU - there are some stunning LOs from the other amazing DT members and lots of great prizes to be had!!!
