Tea at The Ritz

This is the third page from one of my friend's birthday last year and it's a double for Afternoon Tea at the Ritz Hotel. We had a fabulous day out in London and you can see two other pages from the day earlier on my blog (Cheers and In the Sky Garden). 

I used one of my favourite double page sketches (from the now defunct Sketch Support) for my page, one that's really versatile and I have to limit its use. 

On this occasion, I swapped the positions of the title and journalling, and squeezed an extra photo onto the left page. On the right, I turned one of my paper layers into a pocket for the menu and swapped the larger and smaller landscape photos over to help with the layering over the pocket.


Somehow I have managed to run out of cream cardstock, so I used white for the background and chalked the edges to make it a beige/pink colour instead. I based my embellishment on circles and stars to contrast with all the rectangles of paper, and finally found the perfect place for a Shimelle sticker with the wording 'drink tea + eat cake'.
