    amazing challenge and I love the kit that you choose this month, it suits perfectly my retro Spring photos:
    I am using more than 2 or 3 papers (layered), layered the sunray, blended the photo, lots of yellow and the Alpha title.

    Thanks for the challenge. Everything I used on my layout is from Slightly Worn kit. I stacked one leaf and two flowers for my layer.
