Stuck?! Sketches August 15 2016 Challenge: Note to Self "STAY CLEAN" Layout

I have wanted to scrap this photo for a while now and I found the perfect single page sketch to help me on my way:  My inspiration is from the Stuck?! Sketches challenge blog.

The sketch

And here is my layout.

For this layout I used a Kaiser paper from the "key to my heart" collection and some Prima embellishments and I also recycled some of the packaging.

First I stencilled the paper and recycled some packaging:


I always try to have a base plan however often the 
layout turns out quite different.

I place my pieces just to check that it looks OK, if all good ( above is my draft layout) then I put the layout together,  here are some close ups:

 You will note I decided against the banner behind the photo and instead I used a clip frame which I inked and cut in half and placed at either end of the photo
 I placed one of recycled Prima packaging card behind the photo and below is the other packaging that I made into a tag.
And the photo is of Kiwa after he picked on his older brother at the beach.
(And yes there were tears to start with until he realised the sand was still on his face.)
The Black sand at Waverley beach in the Taranaki really does stick to you, LOL.

Happy crafting.
