Here's the sketch for the month:

Amazing View
At first I wasn't too sure about using a whole sheet of cameras as the background, but now I love it. The photo was taken on our cruise ship through a glass viewing platform, looking down from deck 9.
I cut circles to place behind the photos and free hand cut the striped scalloped papers. I love the gold rub-ons which pop out through any patterned paper.
I added a cluster of embellishments to 'anchor' the photo. Love the gorgeous feather that pulls your eye up the page.

In comparison to the first layout, this paper is pretty clean and neutral with a postal border. I love the red journaling card as that is so true to cruising - it really is taking the scenic route.
I lightly gessoed the background before adding splotches and splatters of blue ink. I love the embellishments that go with the kit.
The die cuts and foam embellishments pull the page together.

Icy Straits
I wanted more focus on the photos so kept the page relatively embellishment free. These photos were taken in a tiny little nature reserve where we got to walk under the magnificent pines and ate the largest, freshest crab claws I've ever seen.
I kept a side border for journaling and the title and just a couple of small embellishments on the page.
Again, I did some smooshing with black and yellow distress inks for the background.

Lucky Biz Class Travel
For this next layout, I framed the white cardstock with the light blue aeroplane paper and smooshed in a light blue spray. We were lucky enough to fly business class to and from Vancouver and it was Miss C's first time. She looked so small and cute in her flat bed seat and she enjoyed every minute of it.
I added gold rub-ons on the pink ticket and inked the wooden globe before adding a sticker on top. Love the big plastic mirrored aeroplane to complete the page.
I added accents in all for corners and love the foot paperclip. Pretty random, but so cute.

Paddle Boating
This time I used a light blue cardstock and added some blue stenciling and gold ink splatters before layering on my papers. We went paddling on seacycles. Tough work but the scenery and wilflife we saw around us more than made up for it.
I kept the accents to small little clusters and concentrated on the journaling instead.
 I added a sentiment die cut and stamp to the rest of my accents.
