A white space layout from me

Afternoon all

What a lovely sunny day here in my corner of Kent. After a morning of chillaxing in the sunshine in my garden I have spent a couple of hours in my craft room catching up with some scrapping.

First I took this sketch no 207 from Sketchesinthyme Blog.

This is my take on it. I used a mood board I found on a blog hop over on the June Counterfeit blog hop which really shouted out to me.. I am loving gold at the minute so any excuse to include gold in my layouts, I'm taking it!

This is my take on the sketch.. The photo I wanted to use was landscape rather than portrait so I turned the sketch yet left the bunting to go from left to right.

I used a gold doily and gold chevrons and I added small gold stars on the ends of the bunting aswell as a gold crown on the top cluster. The reason for the crown is that the picture is of my in-laws..who are also called King.. so hence the crown.

And there you have it!



  1. Loving the gold doily. Lovely LO.

  2. Cute page and I like the way you added the floss under the crown. My day's schedule was pretty similar to yours - isn't it nice to have time in both a garden and a scraproom?

  3. Sweet! Beautiful colors & I especially like the very delicate splatters adorned with pearls on the background & the banners.

  4. Very pretty! Great job with the white space. Love that banner! Thanks for joining us at Sketches in Thyme!

  5. OHHHHH! This is quite lovely! And I should have added some gold doilies in my kit too. Drat. ;)

  6. This is a beautiful layout and you have nice looking in-laws. Thanks for joining the challenge at Sketches In Thyme.

  7. Really beautiful. Eli for Sketches in Thyme.

  8. So pretty! I love the color scheme!

  9. Great use of the crown and reasoning behind it.
