Stampin' Up! Scrapbooking with Bonus Sketch!

Hi guys, I wanted to share with you a scrapbook page I did the other night, that I'm quite please with... This will be a fairly picture heavy post "Sorry!"
So, this is a Crumbcake (Kraft) base which I have done some machine stitching down the side in three rows, I have then put some yellow patterned paper on top. The patterned paper is by Echo Park, and it is such a bright, fun paper. I have then stuck down my photo (see below for the story of the photo) and free hand cut some calico and white card to create some clouds. I cut a yellow circle and placed it behind the clouds. The title is made using Thickers and alphabet stickers by October Afternoon. Using the Two Step Owl punch, I cut out some tiny hearts and stuck them underneath the clouds and a piece of new In Colour Pool Party ruffled ribbon finishes this off. All my journalling is around the edge of the Crumbcake 12 x12 card stock. 

Just from a different angle to show the stitching and below is a close up of the clouds
So, this is a photo of me, which my little sister took for a university assignment she had. Her topic was Unconventional Beauty. I was so flattered that she thought of me to be one of her models, and I absolutely adore the photos she took. This was the photo she used in her assignment.
I thought I'd provide you with a scrapbook sketch for this layout, and I think I might make it a semi-regular thing, if I create a layout, you will get a sketch for it :) So, here is the sketch I made up
I am entering this into the Kraft it Up September challenge, which is to use stitching and fabric on your layout, oh and as always, you must use Kraft as your base... 
Thanks for dropping by!
Happy Stamping...
