Summer Fun

Before I made the last page, I had two similar three photo sketches in mind, and I wanted to use both of them. I've dropped back to last year for a set of photos from our day at Adventure Island, a small theme park in Southend-on-Sea and I'm using the mid-month sketch from Stuck!? Sketches.

This page will sit opposite another from the same day (Rage) which has a yellow background, so I chose yellow again. The polka dot paper is from My Mind's Eye so I pulled out all my MME scraps, mixing papers from three Miss Caroline collections. 

I stitched the circles on the sketch with my sewing machine. They looked terribly wonky at first, but now they are half-covered with paper I am happy with the way they look.
