Found this photo of the kids when they were younger and we hosted a Japanese exchange student - Akari. Everything was so new to her and she was always smiling - the language barrier did not even matter - they were kids having fun. I threw a heap of fun accessories on my art desk & played with the colour palette for this month again. I hope you enjoy what I have put together.

I have used a sheet of Vicki Boutin cardstock from the Kaleidoscope Collection and to that I have done some stamping using Carabelle stamps & Tim Holtz distress oxide spray in faded jeans.
Once dry I popped my cardstock in my typewriter and added my journalling. I then found placement for my photo & drew a pencil line around it to add some black stitching. I have also added more stamping using the circle off the Stampers Anonymous Grunge stamp pack.
I adhered the photo to the page and then started to add embellishments from Cocoa Vanilla, American Crafts Thickers & Vicki Boutin & Dina Wakley. I cut my title with the silhouette and coloured it with yellow then had a change of mind and coloured in the title with a black Artline marker.
After I had stuck a majority of my title and embellishments down - the procrastination set in and I wanted to add some yellow circles - *note* it is in your best interest to make the decision to do the layering prior to sticking everything down... it was a long process to fix this.
A few final touches were the clip at the top of the page & a black sewn border
The final product is a fab photo showcased to capture the fun time the kids had and more joy and colour for the Scrapbook.
