July in Mexico - Sketchabilities #143



Once again I couldn't go past the current sketch at 'Sketchabilities'  - multiphoto sketches are my absolute favs! My son has taken so many gorgeous photos during his trip to Mexico and I really wanted to get a few of my favourites scrapped.
I chose my colours from the background of the photos - lovely blues and greens for a seaside theme with a splash of purple to tie in Jaime and Cindy's clothes!
The July chippie piece was in my new Studio Calico project life kit - which arrived this morning! I really liked it as soon as I pulled it out of the box and it was a perfect match for my page!


I built up the rest of the page with inks, stamps and various ephemera (as I usually do!)  A lot of the miscellaneous bits and pieces on this page are from October Afternoon. Once again I used my trusty brush-stroke thickers to spell out the rest of my title and hand journaled on part of a PL journaling card.

Have a great week - and do try to check out this challenge if you want a mojo boost!
