The Dubai Mall - Stuck? June 1st challenge




I love this sketch from 'Stuck? sketches'. Infact I liked it so much that I adhered almost exactly to the design. On our way home from Europe a last month we stopped off a Dubai for a few days. One of the highlights of our stay was the fantastic aquarium at the Dubai mall. if you have been there you will know what I mean. If not, it really has to be seen to be believed. One of the main features is an enormous tank that is around 3 or 4 stories high right in the middle of the shopping area. it is filled with sea creatures of all shapes and sizes. Inside the aquarium is an absolute wonderland of wildlife. From crocodiles and giant squid to bats and owls. The kids were entranced.
For this page I chose a couple of my favourite photos of the main tank. I used my new October Afternoon 'Treasure Map' collection which was perfect for the theme and for the colours in my photos. Here are a couple of close-ups:


Hope that you have time to try out this challenge yourself. laura has a very talented DT and there is always heaps of inspiration to be had over at the 'Stuck?' blog.
