Summer Days

Right this is the last post I promise and won't be on here for atleast a week so you'll get a break from me then lol, just thought would get everything on while I've got time and got things to post. Something to do while I watch the Olympics.

Anyways this is the scrapbook page I completed today, from start to finish I might add!!! I can't claim all the credit though I had a fab sketch to follow (see below) the pictures are from a week away in Llangollen we went down to the river nearly every day so we could keep cool cos it was a scorcher of a summer and got a bit warm in the caravan lol.

I added the mist just to the main paper to break up the pattern a bit, the finer bits of the mist haven't shown up on the photo very well but it's not as patchy in real life lol.

I love the little mini alpha stickers I've used them as part of the title as I didn't have much space and to add the place and date too. The flowers and words came in the pack of paper and the scalloped border was hand-drawn and hand-cut.

Supplies: 'Punch of Colour' Papers by CG Essentials (free with Scrapbook Magazine), Thickers by American Crafts (from Scrapagogo Kit), Mini Alpha Stickers by My Little Shoebox, Black Ink Pad, 'Meadow Lush' Cosmic Shimmer Mist

 I would like to enter this layout in the following challenges...
