On Fiji Time


The current challenge at Once Upon a Sketch is to combine their awesome sketch with journaling about what you are most looking forward to in 2012 or what you loved most (or hated) about 2011. For our family the highlight of 2012 was our family trip to Fiji. I wanted to record how special that time was to me and how grateful i felt to have all my kids together for a week in paradise.
I used a Bo bunny clock shaped background cardstock to match my title 'On Fiji time'. I mounted this on to plain black cardstock so that my colours would really 'pop'. The rest of my papers are from Graphic 45's 'Tropical travelogue' collection. This collections are perfect for summer/tropical holidays. The beautiful chipboard dragonfly is 'Scrapware' and the blue flower from 'Purple pumpkin' (I removed the small blue button that was initially at its centre and replaced it with a much larger yellow button. The blue button looked perfect between the dragonfly's wings). I printed out my journalling on strips of paper and added a title and some tag stickers to complete the page.

Sarah I LOVE this. It sounds like you indeed had so much fun in Fiji and have loved seeing your layouts with your pictures from there. Its so important to remember those holidays. We recently went to Melbourne and even though its no Fiji I plan on scrapping many photos from there so one day, if they ever visit it them selves they can know where we have been together. Thanks so much for playing along with us yet again and I appreciate your support immensely :) Have a great week.

Oh Sarah, what a beautiful page you've done! I've always wanted to go to Figi, my youngest ds was invited to play baseball there when he was 12 but I wouldn't let him go! Parents were not allowed, well, not paid for anyway and we could not afford to go!!! Beautiful, just love the pictures, the dragonfly, your colors....everything is just really stunning! Thanks for joining us at OUAS!
