I have chosen the Paper Fundamentals Pack, their matching Fundamentals Stickers and Assortment. The packs come in our four colour collections: Whimsy, Adventure, Enchantment and Basics. The papers are all double-sided and such great value. Get them while stocks last!

This layout will suit any size photos as you can place them anywhere over the background papers. One side of these papers has an embossed pattern which you can see in my close-up photos.

All the stickers on the page, even the lettering, come from the Fundamentals Sticker pack and make the embellishing of the layout so quick and easy!
 Look at the pennant stickers. So cute! 
 Now because we had a messy time all digging into the pavlova (no-one brought cutlery!) I decided to "mess up" the page a bit with watercolour. I pressed my Honey Ink pad together to get some ink on the lid and then used my Medium Flat Waterbrush to swipe it around the pages. Then I tapped the brush on a pencil to get a little splatter effect. Yes I did this AFTER I had finished the layout! I know...living on the edge.
 When the ink was dry I stamped the journal lines from July's Stamp of the Month twice to get a longer story in, covering the gap in the middle where it wasn't perfect with more stickers. More posts on the Stamp Set HERE.

 I love how this turned out and I love these papers!
Here is another layout I did using the same pack.
