Hello everyone! I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend. The weather this weekend has just been perfect in Sydney. I am so thankful that now I am on holidays that I can take the time to enjoy it. Last year I was fortunate enough to enjoy an amazing holiday to Thailand and Singapore. I had some of the most amazing experiences and have many fond memories.....BUT have not spent enough time capturing them as scrapbook layouts. When I saw the challenge from Once Upon a Sketch I immediately saw the opportunity to get one done.

Theme:  Best day of your life

I selected a photo of a day where I went trekking. We saw and experienced so many fantastic things that day. I actually got to feed some elephants!
I went through my flowers and I pulled out a number of Manorhouse Collection flowers. The large blue flower is one which I have been holding onto with the intention of using it for a page from this trip.

I used some chippies from Dusty Attic. I applied a coat of gesso and inked the edges using some ink. I also used a stencil. I used the same ink to apply it to my background paper.


Paper: Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics 1916 and 1943, Kaisercraft latte

Ink: Walnut stain distress ink

Other: Scallop edge scissors, The Crafters Workshop trendy bracket, Dusty Attic chicken wire ans scroll border, Martha Stewart monarch butterfly punch, Manor House Creations rose leaves, Magestic Gemma, Wishes serenity light blue and Cottage garden picket fence, Kaisercraft paper blooms, seam binding, Prima alphabet stickers, Distrezz it All
