I will admit that when I received the sketch I was shocked - only three photos!! In my mind I was going to scrap lots of photos from our recent trip to the home of the Beatles, Liverpool. Photos of the Superlambanana will have to wait for another time. However I was surprised to find two sets of perfect photos from the previous week. So here is the first.
Variation #1: I flipped the sketch so that it was the opposite way as my photos were facing the wrong way
Variation #2: The clouds were perfect for my photos but there aren't many butterflies on a windy beach so I substituted the seagulls for the butterflies. I cut the clouds using my Silhouette and embossed them using Cuttlebug and Sizzix folders. The seagulls were Quickutz and Sizzix dies with a smattering of weathered wood distress ink on the edges.
Variation #3: Instead of the flowers I cut a stencil from a photo I found on the web of La Rocco Tower which you can just see in the background of the small photo on the left handside. I used my two colours of distress inks to do a subtle shadow.
Variation #4: Instead of using strips of card for the journalling I used strips of Dymo tape. Fortunately I have a good stock of a variety of colours.
Variation #5: As I had a long title I encroached on the block of patterned paper and stitched over the letters.
Variation #6: I also stitched down the horizontal strip which was a border strip from the yellow and blue floral by Sassafras.
I love the background Basic Grey Basics in white as it just has enough detail to make a more interesting base than just plain cardstock and the collection packs come with two sheets of each design so it's perfect for two page layouts.

Supplies Used - Cardstock: Coredinations (red), unknown (turquoise); Patterned Papers: Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey, Paper Pizazz, American Crafts and Jenni Bowlin; Alphas: Making Memories; Embellishments: Tim Holtz Distress Ink (antique linen); Spellbinders die: unknown (ric rac)
Variation #1: I moved the smaller photo to the left so that the photos were chronological.
Variation #2: I substituted the stars for the clouds, butterflies and flowers. Some were cut from the Jenni Bowlin paper and others were cut from the red Coredinations star embossed cardstock with a Spellbinders die. I then sanded the embossed cardstock to reveal the secondary colour. I also cut an extra star and raised it off the patterned paper on the bottom right so as to create a visual triangle with the stars.
Variation #3: No stitching on the patterned papers
Again I used Basic Grey Basics in manila for the background as it just has enough detail to make a more interesting base than just plain card.
