Italian Villas

I made this page at last weekends Scrapbook Sisters Birthday bash, and it was a fab kit, with loads in it, and I'll be showing you what I managed to finish over the next few weeks - nothing like adding a bit of pressure to yourself eh??

This one is another of the photo's I took whilst on a School trip to Italy 20 years ago, and I think the papers compliment the tones of the buildings and trees in the photo really well.  I love how the reflections of the trees can be seen in the water - how cool would it be to have a little boat mored outside your front door?

.  I just wish I could remember if this picture was taken in Venice or Verona - and that I'd kept a diary of my trip (yeah, right if I'd have suggested that to my 17 year old self I can only imagine what the reaction would have been!)

I've coloured the white flower with my copics, and edged it with Stickles and domed a punched circle to make the middle of the flower, then added gems to mark the path of the butterfly that has been cut from another of the papers.  The alphabet stickers are loopy loo by Doodlebug.

I'm really pleased to be doing something with my old photos, hopefully I'll have a flash of inspiration and remember where this was taken!

Lovely page Sue. You have captured Italy with your choice of papers. We are probably all guilty of not recording past adventures to go with our photos. Unless you have a very good memory of course. x
