A different view

Although I managed to scrap at the weekend I have still not managed to start on my Venice mini book/travel log because I can't decide how to display it.

I think it is because I have chosen nearly 100 of my photos that sum up my trip or make me go oooooh about it, so a mini book just isn't going to do it justice - after all it was an awesome trip for me for many reasons!! It is looking like it may turn into an 8 x 8 ...........something, but still not sure what!!

I also want to include these...........
some of the arty postcards I bought and a picture of my lovely Murano glass bracelet - lovely isn't it?
so I need lots of pages and space!!

I did manage this page.
I started off using some paper from the April Scrapagogo kit and a few of the embellies but I kept it light as the background and photo were enough on their own I felt!

It represents my view of Venice, not the usual touristy one but through my own artistic representation and viewpoint!

On a final note - I have just watched the most fabulous rendition of 'Let's get physical' sung by Olivia Newton John herself and the evil Sue Sylvester - it was fabby - made me laugh out loud!
If you are not a fan of Glee - you really should be!

Gorgeous layout Sarah :) I think you definitely need something more than a mini for all those pictures! Either that or an ATC carousel to display them all, that would look fab!

Wasn't Sue Sylvester fantastic? I love Glee :)

Hi Sarah

So you coud'nt resist the glass, it is beautiful is'nt it. Last time there we bought some pieces from a shop right next to the main gondola station - is that what they call it ?

With that many pictures to scap you'll be at it forever. But you've made a good start here.

Hi Sarah

A stunning LO, that paper suits your photo perfectly, doesn't it.
I see you couldn't resist the Murano glass either. What a pretty bracelet. I have a turqouise heart necklace that I adore, although it didn't come from Venice. We have a fantastic jewellers that sells it and I always drool in the window whenever I go by.
Those postcards are amazing too. Oh dear I'm drooling again!!
