Paper Stories July Sketch

Hi bloggers,
has it ever taken you three weeks to finish one layout?
Well it did for me with this layout, not so much that it actually took three weeks to scrap per-se.
I actually did most of it about three weeks ago in one sitting and then it just kept getting pushed further and further down the to do list until I could finish it! 
Well I finally had a chance this week to add my title and some finishing touches. 

I created it for this sketch challenge at Paper Stories 

The papers are Simple Stories.
How cute is that camera paper clip?? 
It was in a kit from A Piece of Cake Designs.

The background is created with distress paints and Dylusions stamps.

Thanks for stopping by to look at my work. 



  1. Oh Leonie I love this layout, the background looks amazing.

  2. Wow the colors are so eye catching, love that back ground, love the banners too.. and sometimes I move on to another layout when one just isn't coming together, and then when I come back with different eyes I can finish it.. so glad you finished this.. it is a beauty!

  3. Yes, I had a layout sit on my desk for 8 weeks once before I found my mojo again and finished it off!! I love your layout... The colours are so yummy and the banners look fabulous!!!

  4. Stunning background Leonie and what gorgeous happy photos! love it so much :) xo
