Sketchy Scrappers: The Eye

Today is my day off. Ian is working a nightshift all week so I needed to find something quiet to do, out of his way while he slept. Hmmm that would be scrapping then! This months sketch over at Sketchy Scrappers was set by the lovely Gemma who set this sketch 
I decided rather than use one landscape & one portrait photo to have a delve and use a portrait photo with a 4x4 Instagram photo instead. I've been having my photos printed via the Fotobox app on my phone. It's easy to upload, select your size, quantity and they arrive in a couple of days, so if you have an iPhone I'd recommend them :-) Anyway back to business, this is my layout 
The photos are obviously of the London Eye. The papers are from my scraps and I just had to use a scrap of Echo Park paper with the fairground rides on as it fitted perfectly. I also pulled out my Stampin Up cloud embossing folder as I also felt this fitted with the photos perfectly. I adapted the bunting idea to a doily instead, and cut some Elle's Studio pennants and placed them to the right. 


  1. Great photo choice on this page Jess the IG looks great with the portrait x
    Love the subtle embossing on the paper :)

  2. Great layering. Love the chevron tape and the tags at the right, and the doily reflects the eye so well!

  3. Really lovely Jess - love the unusual view of that shot of the London Eye x

  4. Great layout, will give that app a go thanks :)
