Stuck?! June 1st Sketch

Morning, y'all!  It's the beginning of another month yet again, and that means we've got a brand spankin' new Stuck?! sketch to inspire your June pages.  Here's my take.
I started this page by inking Squeezed Lemonade & Broken China Distress Inks, through rays and polka dot templates, onto the aqua, distressed, base page.  The rays were further framed with white-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  I then stamped the page, in Jet Black ink, with the grid bits and anchored three, hand-cut, patterned, paper pennants, with more white-threaded, straight, machine stitches, in their respective locations.
A piece of raindrop, patterned paper was adhered over all previous bits and topped with my photographs, which were matted with Whisper White cardstock and flanked with a white, paper doily and red, polka dot, journaling card, as well as a perforated, check stub and torn bit of polka dot, patterned paper.  The polka dot, patterned paper was punched with the circles and used to frame the darling, vintage, beach girl images, which were stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a piece of vellum.
I then tucked those punched circles throughout the design before adhering a length of black, floral, Washi Tape down the left side of my photos.  A black and kraft, scalloped, journaling circle tops the latter and, in turn, was topped with a chipboard cloud, as well as a teal, paper bloom and wood veneer, Mason jar.
My top photo was dressed up with a teal, striped, Kill Creek, Aug. 26, 2012, pennant, which was anchored with a red button, laced with a white string bow.
A smattering of gold sequins, as well as a button blossom turn our attention to the bottom right corner of the design...
where you'll find a strip of multicolored, stripe, patterned paper, anchored with white-threaded, zig-zag, machine stitches, which had a black and kraft, journaling bit and teal, polka dot frame tucked under its top and bottom edges respectively.  The latter frames my "BEACH babe" title, which was created from red rubons and a "BEACH" sticker.  The word bubble sentiment was cut from a journaling card and topped with a bit of "Oh Happy Day!" flair, and a stamped, in Jet Black ink, "Life" completes the look.
Here's our June 1st Sketch that started it all.  Can't wait to see what you all come up with!
