Pinch, punch for the 1st of the month! Another month has flown by, probably by all the wind we've been having, which means its time for the Sketchy Scrappers layouts to be unveiled. This month yours truly set the sketch and I chose this one from Creative Scrappers.
Like many people at the beginning of the month we had a little garden party to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. This has also meant that there are lots of Union Jack/ British inspired stash around at the moment, and the last issue of Docrafts magazine came with a selection of Papermania Portabello Road papers. So I put them to good use by creating this layout
All the papers are from the Portabello Road range and the scalloped circle was made by sticking two of the semi circles from the die cut paper pack together. I then added some Air Mail bakers twine from Sarah's Cards and some red, white & blue flowers from a pack brought ages ago from Hobbycraft, one of those impulse buys which then never gets used! The letter stickers are from an old Quirky Kit, I think they might be Echo Park?

I'm very pleased with the outcome and how everything coordinates just nicely. Luckily the layout came together quite quickly as we were going away the last week in June, we just came home yesterday, from a wet week in Wales. I'm sure pictures might follow soon! xx
