Rome Sweet Rome...

Hi There! Today I am here to share a layout I created using some of my photographs taken in Rome. I have been putting off scraping these because I have been waiting to get the perfect pattern paper for the job.

And here it is:-)....

I picked the photographs and a ticket that I had saved from this particular trip, and chose the paper to match the tones of the photograph and certain elements in it. (Note the cream colour used here is matched with my cream colour hat; I chose a tag and the alpha stickers in the same colour)

The tag was a regular manila tag that was stamped with a 7gypsies travel stamp set and then stamped with my bicycle stamp and some Ali Edwards sentiments. I stamped the sentiment in multiples in light red ink. Love how it adds a little something without crowding my tag:-)

The gorgeous patterned paper is from Studio Calico (as well as that cute little bicycle stamp:-) Too cute!!!).

I love collecting Basic Grey Tiny Type alpha stickers, they always come handy when adding little bits of journaling or titles for layouts.. Here I used a mix of capitals and simples for some added interest to my otherwise not so original title;-)

I also used some elements off an October Afternoon paper, I cut them out in circles and adhered them with Pop Dots:-) I love how they add some dimension to this layout as well as tie in the travel theme together..

Hope you enjoyed my layout for today, there is another one coming up soon..
So till then, Happy Stamping!

    THANKS A LOT for your sweet comments on my project for the Hero Arts Challenge!
    And - you are a winn, too!!! Congratulation!!! You submitted a wonderful card!
    I see you´re from Sri Lanka! Great! My husband and I stayed there for 2 weeks in 2003 and we enjoyed our vacation a lot.
    I´m not writing so many comments right now, because we´re on vacation in Croatia ... it´s so good to relax and enjoy the sun! It has been a long and cold winter in Austria!
    I scrolled through your photostream on flickr - but forgot my password - so I couldn´t write any comments... but: YOU MAKE SO BEAUTIFUL CARDS!! I became your blog-follower.... I thought it would be nice to stay in touch :-)
    Many Greetings,
