Lake Maggiore


As soon as I saw the new challenge, Spring Pin, at The Studio Challenges I was determined to play along and knew just the photos I could use. The inspiration pic for the challenge is 


The photos are from our first Italian holiday in 1993 where we were lucky enough to see the beautiful flower festival. They spent al day decorating and in the evening the boats all went out onto the lake surrounded by floating candles. They then had a wonderful firework display also on the lake.

I used some old papers from K&Co and Basic Grey, tags from WE R Memory Keepers and Craftwork Cards and some flowers and pearls. I couldn't decide on a title but once I saw the chipboard Memories amongst my scrapbooking stash I thought it matched perfectly and te page does conjure up vivid memories of that day. As I used some old papers it also fits their use up your old stash challenge so one layout for 2 of their challenges.
