One Sunny Afternoon

This is another page using the Scrap Rat November kit, and I tried a grid style page for this one (which is very hard to photograph with out the gridlines looking a bit wonky as you have to be absolutely straight - so apologies).  I lightly drew the lines on with pencil and then stitched over them adding the odd bit of zig zag too.  It's quite a stitching page - my first time stitching photos (normally I don't touch the photos), I used up various pieces of paper that I had already cut into to make the squares and inked and stitched around them.  I made my own embellishment heart and stitched around this (I did machine stitch it 1st but it didn't look right, so I then hand stitched in the machine stitch holes).  

I used one square for my journalling, then added some of those 3D circles baubbleish embellishments - they are 2 circles creased down the middle, and stitched through the centre (I lightly glue then stitch them) and I used the prima alphabet in this square too.  Next one along and I had my pinking shears out to so some edging and used one of the flock rubons, down to the next line a Happy sticker from echo park mounted and edged with my pinking shears and stuck on 3D foam and a little flower and gem.

A few more shots from our canoe trip of everyone in the boat having lots of fun...still couldn't work out whether it was the kids or the adults who were more excited about getting out on the water :)
