Who Needs a Carnival?

I have been pretty busy yesterday...  STITCHING! Yes, i stitched until the wee hours of the night, and stitched some more early this morning (my fingers are all in knots!!!) in order to finish this layout: 

I'm not sure if you can see all the stitches but let me just say there's a LOT! hehe  But it was well worth all the work!  I love the dimension that it adds to this layout, and the way it brings out the colors of the paper and pictures.  The collection used is mostly Summer Days from Echo Park which i got in the fabulous Artful Delight May Kit.

Each page of this layout is based on a sketch at Artful Delight. I decided to merge 2 single sketches to make a double-page, therefore i get to enter 1 layout twice for this month's Delightful challenges (hopefully that's allowed!) 

The left page is based on sketch #4
... and the right page is based on sketch #3
Thank you for looking! Hope it brightened up your day a little with a rainbow of colors! :)
