paper stories - july

i havent had much chance to scrap with school holidays and then the rush of going back to school and craziness with afterschool activities but i have managed a few layouts and i definitely had to do this one as i loved the sketch. 
i couldnt crop one of photos to make it into a square so they had to stay as rectangles and i also struggled as my first photo was a different way to the rest of them and i like things the same but im trying to let it go and just love the page i did. 
unfortunately we had such a great time on mothers day i forgot to take a photo and only realised when i had gone to tuck them in before i went to bed so i quickly got the camera and took photos. 
so here is the sketch  

and here is my page

close ups...i love that washi tape. i dont know what im going to do when it runs out

  5. Hi Bel, this is just gorgeous....the photos are priceless, you have done a wonderful job with the sketch. Thanks for your beautiful comments on my blog.....I was lucky enough to have 4 days away and got a chance to do some scrapping at night time which was lovely....I did up kits so I didn't have to take to much gear....I am home now hence a bit more is being used on my layouts... xx
