The Gold Man of San francisco

Hi everyone. Firstly, if you are here for the 'Stuck' birthday blog hop please scroll down :)

CSI has combined with the awesome UK scrap magazine, Scrap 365 for a series of challenges. this is the first. I really loved these colours and the travel themed mood board brought to mind these photos that I took last year in San francisco. I used the awesome October Afternoon 'Travel Girl' collection for this page. I really love all the ephemera that goes along with this collection and I went to town with the tags and stickers. 
I framed the page with map paper (gutted ofcourse so I can use the rest of the sheet for another page) and also used circles and travel accents from the 'evidence' list. I journaled across three tags to fulfil the journaling criteria (and to have a good excuse to use lots and lots of those fab October Afternoon themed journaling stickers!).

Here is a close up of my journaling if you want to read it :). See the photo negative strips peeping out from the borders - they are a Ranger product called 'film strip ribbon' and are so versatile. I think that I am now using my third tin!!! I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the giant arrows. 
Have a peek over at this challenge and the other current challenges over at CSI. If you have time to give them a try yourself you could win yourself a great prize or guest DT position!
