Happy Holidays

Natalie took this photo as we boarded our return flight to NZ after our Gold Coast holiday. These days it is unusual to board a flight via steps rather than though a tunnel so I was quite excited to see this cool pic.
I love how she has captured our whole group at various levels up the steps - and our happy smiles at the end of a fantastic week.
The smaller picture is also priceless. It show Benji exactly how he is today. He loves his new 'Tigie' backpack that I bought for him at Dreamworld and he takes it everywhere with him! He insisted that Tigie came on the flight with us as hand luggage and he cuddled his new friend for most of the 3 hour flight. So cute!
The current colour challenge at 'Scrapfriends' was a good match for these photos:

I sprayed my background with red ink using strips of washi tape to mask out the 'stripe' elements and punched out circles to mask the polka dots. I added interest to the background with various masks and stamps. I layered various bits and pieces in small clusters around my photos and I handwrote my journaling under the photos. here are a couple of close-ups.

Thanks for calling by my blog today - the last day of 2013!!! Hope you have a great New Year's Eve and that 2014 will be a fantastic year for us all!!!
