Seuss Landing


Whew, what a scorching weekend we had. 28 - 30 degrees is way too hot for me. Headed off to the coast on Saturday where the sea breeze was lovely. Yesterday we were selling cards at a motor show and fun day. Did fairly well. Luckily we could have the sides off the gazebo so we did manage to catch a bit of breeze at times. So no crafting or bloghopping this weekend. However I made this layout on Friday. The photos are from Universal's Islands of Adventure in Florida. It has themed areas with the most amazing buildings and details. It also has huge rollercoasters which just aren't for me. This is Seuss landing where you can meet the Cat in The Hat and The Grinch at Christmas. The buildings are really quirky and this train ride is my sort of ride. Great views of the park from up there and nice and slow.

The backing card is Core'dinations, minimum papers on this one, which are Daisy and Dandelion A Winter's Tale. I tore and distressed the edges using DI Faded Jeans and Worn Lipstick. I cut the train photo into 6 and mounted it onto peach card to pick up the colour from the bottom photo. The borders are K&Co and I found the chipboard tag and star brad in my Christmas stash.

Challenges
Creative Craft World Great scrap map 
Deep Ocean Deep Blue 

I have been so pleased to find some challenges specifically for scrapbooking, Creative Craft World and Cards Galore Scrapbook where they have a DT call, which I am entering.

If you haven't tried scrapbooking I urge you to give it  a try. It is quite different to cardmaking in many ways, very satisfying to make something with your photos and it is for you, whereas the cards we make are either to give away or sell. Of course, scrapbooks make great gifts too. we look at our photos far more now they are in scrapbooks than we ever did photo albums. Expect to see more layouts appearing amongst the cards on my blog.
