Fun in the Sun by SUE CREASE

Hi!
Here I am again sharing a layout for The Mad Scrapper Blog and today it's a fun layout using a sketch by Sarah Packer for the February GoGo Cyber Crop. Unfortunately I was too late to join in on the day but wanted to use the sketch. I have also combined it with Niki's Moodboard from the same crop. 
Here is the sketch I followed and the moodboard. These sort of things are great to kickstart your crafting day especially if you want to try something new.
I have been wanting to use my 2 photos for a while and so I chose to use the B side of the Vintage Artistry Beached - Journal Cards paper along with Sunkissed - Fun in the Sun and Feelin' Fine by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I cut strips 1inch wide from the papers and distressed the edges and placed them down and then I decided to stitch using lime green and peach thread along the edge finishing with a bow.
I chose one of the journal cards for my title, trimming it down to fit on top of another. Then I went through the 49 and Market/Vintage Artistry beached ephemera bits and pulled out flowers, flipflops, starfish, frames, tickets and sentiment die-cuts.
This next photo shows that sentiment which I matted on to a Yellow Bazzill card using a fancy edge die. Also you can see a couple of the sweethearts from the February Fox-box.
A closer look at the photo frame and bus tickets along with a cute camera diecut and a flamingo! I know in the photo I'm all smiles but by the end of the trip I hated it.
We were in Turkey on our first holiday there and we were paddling our way to a mud bath and picnic lunch, they were both great fun.
You can see I added some distress-ink in Mustard Seed around the photos, then to finish off I used Glossy Accents like water drops and some gold Nuvo drops.
Thanks for dropping in again, I hope you can pop by The Mad Scrapper  to see all the cool stuff or maybe if you're lucky enough you could call in to the shop itself.
Till next time, take care.
Sue.
