NYC Streets


Back with another scrapbook layout today. I loved our visit to New York and really want to go back. It is just like you expect it to be from seeing it in movies and on TV. These pics were taken in Greenwich Village and Brooklyn. The bottom picture is of the famous brownstones which I have read about in many novels. Very tranquil walking around here away from the hustle of Times Square.

I tore and inked some old papers and added some vintage ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.I used a Tim Holtz on the edge townscape die also inked with DI Vintage Photo. The love lamp post is a new die from Doohickey I got with a voucher I won a few weeks ago at Winter Wonderland. I didn't have enough of each letter in the alphabet stickers I wanted to use so I used a mixture and I really like the effect.

Two of my crafting friends who sell handpainted ceramics and textiles are sharing the shop at the hospital with me today. We did this a couple of months ago and we were very busy as is is right by the outpatient's reception. They have different people in there every day and we are hoping to get a regular day a month next year. It is an early start so I won't be around all day today.
