A Summer to be Proud

Well I'm definitely making the most of my week off as I've managed to do another layout this afternoon woohoo!! This time I did a layout for this months Tag-a-long sketch challenge. This was the sketch
I must admit I did struggle with this sketch for some reason even though I knew which picture I wanted to use as soon as I saw it, funny huh? But I persevered and finally came up with this
 I wanted to document how this summer has made me feel proud to be British so when I found this photo on my phone of the bunting we hung in our garden for the Jubilee I knew I had the perfect opportunity. I wanted to use red, white & blue but not in an overly obvious Union Jack kind of way, with the exception of the cute flag buttons I brought ages ago from the local haberdashery. The papers are all from various MME lines: follow your heart, Nostalgia & Stella & Rose. The alphas are Authentique and American Crafts Thickers. Add a couple of stickers from Everyday Eclectic from Echo Park and I was finished. Here is a close up of the journalling
