Clear The Desk - Layout #5 - Knickerbocker Glory Days

Hello Everyone

Today's the day for the fifth layout made for Shimelle's Clear The Desk Class.
It's a return to a seaside themed layout featuring, as it does, two photos of scrumptious ice cream sundaes enjoyed, I hasten to add, on two separate occasions. The background paper is another B side, this time  Swimming Fish from Echo Park's Summer Party collection and one that I've been hoarding, and stroking, for a couple of years. However, it's was such an appropriate background for the two photos that I couldn't not use it. In the embellishment clusters the flowers and cameras were fussy cut from other papers in the kit - see here - I made up for the class. The title letters are from Snap Color Vibe Stickers Brights. I've used a mix of enamel dots and Nuvo Crystal Drops in pastel shades to reflect the colours in the ice creams.

The journaling, written in grey ink, tells how we began the tradition on a visit to Barmouth in Wales of always having just one Knickerbocker Glory ice cream whenever we were at the seaside. Now that we live in a seaside town we have had to re-write the tradition somewhat. Our 'glory days' are confined to holidays only!

Once again, I'm keeping the post simple but if you are interested in taking the class you can find the details over on Shimelle's website.

Layout #6 follows tomorrow.

Happy crafting to all.
