CKC Sketch Inspiration

The sketch inspiration for June really caught my interest, knowing that I had several multiple photo events to scrap this month.

The sketch comes from  Scrapbook .com and is a double layout using 6x4 photos.  As I prefer to get my photos printed at a lab, I find this easier than fiddling around with different sizes, but I knew that I needed to use more photos than the sketch.  Enter Picasa Collages - in which I converted several 6x4 photos into doubles, which allowed me to include a lot more photos than the original.

So here are my Jubilee photos, showing the main events of that memorable weekend.

Materials Used: White Bazzill cardstock, Patterned paper by Studio Calico, 7 Gypsies and Cosmo Cricket. Border Stripby Scenic Route. Rubons by Fancy Pants and Glitz Designes, Frames by Making Memories, Buttons by Papermania (?), Gems Papermania, Tab Punch by Fiskars.
Included are banners made from the paper chains we decorated the windows with, and some delightful Union Jack buttons donated by the ever generous Claire - thank you!  I also included the flag from my delicious Union Jack iced cupcake, courtesy of Wendy M - a master confectioner indeed.

I'm still dithering whether to add a title, but it will have to be small if I do!

I love your layout Ali you've managed to show so much really effectively! I am particularly loving those red swirls in the corners.
