Sketch 'n'scrap and Use your stuff

I've used the sketch from Sketch'n'scrap on this layout.

and at Use your stuff they want a song title to inspire you.
While making this layout I found myself humming Nilsson's "New York city" (1969).

All items on here are from my Counterfeit Kit, starting with the background paper which is a B side of a horrible pattern that I bought several sheets of.(Silly me!)
The black strips are straight as is the vellum. That Applebee's photo is taken at an angle & makes the whole left side look wonky.
I used some hand stitching on the top left corner.
These are my daughter's photos from her trip to New York.

I need to get my photos from my last trip sorted once and for all before heading off for the second trip on Tuesday! This is a great interpretation of the sketch and the hand stitching is a perfect final touch.
