Enjoy the Simple Life (Stuck?! Sketches)

Hello again!  August is flying by and I'm here today sharing a layout I made for the latest sketch over at Stuck?! Sketches.  I used my July Hip Kit again because it was perfect for the photo of Shaun and Brielle.  

This layout started with that gorgeous stripe by Fancy Pants, and then I knew that I wanted to hand stitch the circles on the sketch.  I had put a filter over my photo in PicMonkey, and the other papers suited the design perfectly.  I did my misting and stamping before I stitched, and I used a really old Studio Calico stamp for the "+" sign.  I kept my embellishment to a minimum on this one.

The chipboard is from Crate Paper's Poolside collection, and I added some leaves cut with my favourite Stampin' Up die on my Cuttlebug.

That Simple Stories Summer Vibes cut apart was perfect for my title.

This months kit had October Afternoon Pop Drops, which are perfect because they include enamel shapes too!

And here is Laura's fantastic sketch:
