Sketchy Thusdays Sketch 7.29

I love the Sketchy Thursdays sketch this week, especially Lisa’s take on it, so I had to try it out straight away:

I like how it’s quite simple, but can be adapted in so many different ways. I’m sure I’ll be using this one again, and will always end up with something really different! Here’s what I made of it this time (click on the photo to see it larger):

Journaling reads:

‘My 24th birthday was spent on Koh Phi Phi in Thailand. We swam, sipped champagne and cocktails, sunbathed, ate good food, and watched Poi dancers. Perfect!’

Had lots of fun glimmer misting and distressing the light green cardstock, then fraying and machine stitching the faded brown paper. I also found some perfect bits in my stash to add to the page, inc a vintage image of a girl and a big b’day cake, and a postage stamp from thailand.

I have got so many travel photos waiting to be scrapbooked, it’s nice to get one done every once in a while and remember what fun we had. I’d really like to go back to Phi Phi one day, I loved it there for the snorkelling, boat trips, and great places to hang out. Ah, one day I’ll be there again! xx

  • Awesome layout Jennifer! Those are my favorite colors & there is so much to look at on this layout. Wow!
