Gondola Ride & I'm a Winner

Yay... it's Friday! Best day of the working week.

Just have a quick share. This next layout was created for the current Artastic challenge, which was to feature a boat, 2 people and stripes. So I have indeed covered the criteria. These photos were taken during our European trip last July. It was so hot in Venice but much better than the freezing winter we have now in Australia. Okay... so our version of freezing is nothing on Europe but its cold for us lol

I have actually used the Kaisercraft Up, Up and Away collection for this one also, so it kind of goes with my stonehenge page. Also some vintage buttons, Cardboard, and Crete paper alphas.





I also wanted to share the news that I won the sketch challenge over at Multi photo scrapbooking layouts. You can check it out here. I'm surprised actually as the layout I submitted did not come up well at all when I photographed it so it was a very pleasant, unexpected surprise.

This weekend I am heading to the Papercraft expo in Brisbane with a co-worker. I am sooo excited! We are hopefully going to do a class with Melissa Kennedy from kaisercraft if it hasn't booked out. I also won a $10 Scrapmatts voucher to spend on the day so a nice extra bonus. And its a long weekend here for the Queens birthday (no idea why as I think her real birthday is in February).

Hope you all have something lovely planned!

This is beautiful! I love the layering and I'm a big fan of the use of cardboard on a LO, it always adds that an extra special look to a page. I also love the colour scheme here, really very pretty! Thank you so much for entering our challenge.
