Prima PPP July 2014 and OUAS July challenge - "The 5 Musketeers"

Howdy hi!

The last days of my summer hols and weather forecast shows nothing but a big sun and a whopping +30C and more. No rain in sight so I pulled down the blinds and put the fan at full blast when I created the page I am sharing with you today.

I am entering it both for OUAS' July challenge as well as the Prima July PPP.

First the OUAS sketch with journalling theme "numbers";

and then the Prima PPP ;

Here's my take - "The 5 Musketeers";
The journalling is at the back of the page, 
it is kind of private.
It tells the story about a family, 
and the importance of love
when home is away from home.

The layout is 100%, but as I have used bits and 
pieces without their packaging found 
in my stash during my recent de-stashing, 
I unfortunately haven't got the different item numbers
at hand .

 Papers are Sea Shore, Something Blue and Delight.
Chipboard is Delight.
Flowers are both odd ones loose from
a box, and Stationer's Desk.

Thank you so much for coming by! I will
soon be back at the computer making visits!

Till then toodeloo! xoxo Eila
