In the spirit of all things coordinated, and my doubles marathon - I was sure this sketch would work perfectly stretched out a little! It was hard to find vertically oriented pictures but eventually I did and above is the result. My sister took these pictures of my family when she bought a new digital SLR and wanted a good chance to test out its capabilities. We were very pleased with the results... I matched them up with my American Crafts "best of" paper pad and came up with this layout. As the papers I used were pre printed I struggled with the circle element on the right, and decided I really wanted to do a rainbow, but of course I didnt have any so I decided to draw this one on vellum, cut it out around the patterns on the paper and colour it with inks. Im very pleased with the result!

I am also linking up with one of the Lucky7Factory's Wizard of Oz challenges for this month - the criteria is to use a brilliant red in your layout - which I think I achieved here! They are closing down soon, which is devastating as their papers are so so perfect for party photographs with brights and neons all around. The papers are now on sale, and a massive bargain if you live in the US or Canada....
