Stash Challenge #1 ~ Kraft It Up!

For our first challenge we are going to get busy and ... 
Create a LAYOUT and at least 50% of the products you use on your layout must be Kraft paper and/or embellies.   
Oh, and that's not it!  
You will have to dig further into your stash because...
you must include 3+ metal embellishments..  You can mix or match the metal embellishments as long as there are 3 or more on you layout.

I have fallen in love with Kraft paper and all the different scrapbooking supplies that are made with it.  For my project I created this layout using the MME Kraft Funday collection that has been buried in my stash.  I really like all the fun patterned papers in this collection which as you can see are easy to layer.   I cut a tag from Kraft cardstock to add to the layers.   I dug a little deeper into my stash and pulled out (6) metal eyelets, a metal rosette that I added to the tag, and a paper clip which had a ribbon tied on it, that I replaced with one of the chipboard buttons from the MME Kraft Funday collection.   I threw in some washi tape and twine and here is the result:
And here is the prize you are playing for this month:
