England Sightseeing

Well, I managed to take a few pictures off of the stack of gazillions from this trip...


I used lots of gold stuff on this page.   :)
Gold stickles, gold ink on the doilie and some gold ribbon down the side.  
Kinda tried to match the gold of Queen Victoria.
I used the sketch from Week 4 from Let's Get Sketchy:




For the pictures of St. Paul's Cathedral, I used a sketch from Stuck on U Sketches.





And the last page for tonight was inspired by Scrapbook Challenges:



For this one I found my wooden hexagon pieces and used some fine tipped markers on them.  The flowers and papers are from Simple Stories.

Have a wonderful Day!~!!

Welcome to England!

Off and running on another HUGE stack of vacation photos!
We were lucky enough to spend 7 days in England sightseeing and visiting family.
Here are the first of about 200 layouts....lol

I distressed the background a little with spray mist and a light dabber.
This sketch is from Stuck?!






Next up I used this sketch from Blue Fern along with one of their fun titles.  
I used a paint dabber on the titles and the papers are from Little Yellow Bicycle.





Next I used a sketch from Flying Unicorn.  LOVE these denim papers from DCWV!
I added some bling flourishes to the corners and some DIY flowers from LYB.
This is also my One Little Word for the challenge at S.W. A. T.  
I definitely need to focus on doing this a LOT more this year..



And then I have this fun page:


This was inspired by another sketch from Scrapmuch?
I used a bit of ink on the edges and as an afterthought, I slipped a map behind the picture.


Well, that's the start of our England trip!
LOTS more to come!

Have a wonderful day!!!

WOOHOO!  Here are the FINAL 2 layouts from Paris!  I am so thrilled to be finished with this part!  

Here is what I came up with using a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy:



And the final page was made using a sketch from Let's Capture Our Memories and a mood board from S.W.A.T.
I slipped in our train tickets behind the pictures.




Now...on to England!!  

Have a wonderful day!!!

More of Paris

I really wish we had time to explore more of Paris.  One way we thought would be interesting was to take a balloon ride.  Granted, this particular balloon was tethered,...but it was still fun!!


I used the following sketch from Sketch N Scrap.


To highlight this great picture of the Eifel Tower, I used this sketch from Sketches in Thyme along with a color combo from Scrap Around the World.




Getting close to the end of the Paris pictures!

Have a wonderful day!

Visiting The Louvre

The outside of The Louvre was just as interesting as the inside!
I mixed a few pictures of the courtyard by The Louvre with the ticket stubs.

I used another sketch from Nuts About Sketches.  And I also played along with the Anything Goes  challenge from Clique Kits.  This is a new site I found and the kits look great and I need to build my stockpile, I mean stash, I mean supplies....I was also able to incorporate some chevron pieces from Creative Embellishments that I inked up and sprayed with Glimmer Mist.



Have a wonderful day!

I added some heart brads and a couple of red Christmas doilies.  

Have a wonderful day!
