I have been a bit slack recently with both my blog posts and doing more scrapbooking, so I thought I had better do both in one hit!
This scrapbook page is the result of a sketch which I received as part of a “challenge”, and while I really liked the sketch, it wasn’t a really straight forward, simple one (well, not for me anyway!) so I was a little apprehensive about completing it and entering my work. However, once I got started, it all fell into place very easily. I think it helps that Stampin’ Up! have so many gorgeous patterned papers, they make scrapbooking just so easy. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I won that particular challenge, to my complete surprise. There were many other gorgeous entries.
And yes, I did cut all those little flowers out by hand
The photos were all taken when my husband and I were in Fiji for a holiday in 2004. The sunsets over there were just magnificent and very memorable, I really don’t think these photos do them justice, but they serve as a reminder of all the times we sat drinking cocktails in the pool, or sat in the open air restaurant eating our dinner, and watched the sun set over the sea. Hmmmmmm might be time to go back for another holiday
