Open Skies - CSI case file 325 July 15th

I'm not an American, so I don't celebrate July 4th, but still the colors of the inspiration photo for Case File 325 at CSI, cought my eyes:

The photo was taken on October 2015, when me and my youngest were on a vacation in London. Yet my journaling is 'Here & Now' - how Covid-19 abolished all our vacation plans since the skies are no longer open.
All papers I used are Piatek13, except the grayish woodgrain one, from the 'Off  Shore' collection. I love their papers - so beautiful and also heavy whieght.
How I solved this case file:
I used all 5 colors of the scheme. For the evidence I used: stripes, stars, woodgrain pattern, vintage/retro style elements (the alphas, the black stamped lace border), flowers, a banner, distressing, something transparent (vellum leaves) and melt something (I heat embossed the flowers and the hidden London stamp on the blue paper).
For my journaling I used the inspiration words free/ freedom and added stars to my journaling spot.

I used PageDraft sketch from Challenge YOUrself:

Here're some close-ups on the details:

Gorgeous layout! I feel you on cancelled vacation plans. It's definitely been a rough summer with nowhere to go. So glad it inspired a scrapbook page, though! And that you shared it with us at Challenge YOUrself!
