Can You Stand Up?

This is my first page that I have made from the prompts Shimelle has been sending out - and is based on one of the sketches by Julie Kirk.  I used some of my August Quirky kit for this page, as the sassafras sunshine broadcast range seems to fit so nicely with those beachy photos.  The shots are from our holiday and of my DS and his friends trying to surf on body boards....and funnily enough it dosen't really work but it was quite funny watching them try and enjoying themselves.  I used some of my off cuts in all the layers of paper down the side - there is some October Afternoon - Fly a Kite as well as Sassafras indie girl and more sunshine strips.  I added some zig zag to some of the strips and ribbon and lace and buttons, I also fan folded some paper to add a little dimension.  The title is a mix of alphas, authentique, cosmo cricket and a kraft range (can't remember the brand).  The doily shape piece is from crate papers peppermint Christmas range, I wrapped it in string and stuck a prima pearl in the middle.  A little bit of bling, some stapled numbers and flicks of brown shimmer ink and this is what I came up with.  Amazingly I got this done in one night (doing other things to) - I think the prompts make me more focused and there are some great sketches to use here is a way for you to use up some of those strips of paper sitting in pizza boxes.
