October Blast from the Past Challenge

Hi all. 

It's Amanda here. 

After the wild storms in SA, our home town has been left with electricity outages for days and no mobile or landline phone coverage. Thankfully we are all back on track now however it's also affected those on ADSL internet in our town. 

Thank you to those who have expressed concern to us, our township and all of South Australian families who were literally blown off the map and left in the dark - it was a scary experience for everyone across the state!

Sandra has been unable to post the October challenge on the first of the month, and her  internet may be out for some time so I hope you can put up with me for one month helping her out by posting a very basic K+ post.

October's challenge is :

 Blast from the Past 
and is not graphic based (although you may be inspired by it)... but product driven.

You must use one of the listed products AND use kraft as your main focus.

We welcome all kinds of craft as entries for our challenges, from traditional layouts, 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.

When uploading your entries please let us know which part of the world you come from, this makes it much easier for the DT when it comes to voting.

As usual the DT have come up with some amazing projects to inspire you.
