Kind of a Big Deal! - 123 challenge blog July DT page and sketchabilities challenge

 Welcome to yet another month - July - more than half way through the year already !!!
The great think about a new month is all the brand new challenges that are live! Here is the July challenge from 123 Challenge Blog and my take on it for the DT. I also used the new sketch from Sketchabilities as the basis for my page. I always love the fantastic sketches on the 'sketchabilities' blog!

I love working with bright colours so i enjoyed this challenge. I used my brightest yellow and green inks for the background. I rarely use ribbon in my designing but here I used it as I would use washi tape behind my photo. I think I have found a whole new way to use my ribbon stash!
I took the photo last weekend at Auckland airport. My son Jaime as leaving on a dream trip to Mexico to meet up with his girlfriend and travel for a month together. It really was 'kind of a big deal' because Jaime has never travelled on an aeroplane alone before and he was a little nervous about it. To add to his anxiety his flight was overbooked and he had to wait 12 hours for another plane! Luckily we live 40 mins from the airport and could take him home again to wait!

Here are a couple of close-ups of my page:



Hope you find time to join us this month - we would love to see your take on this challenge which really is a lot of fun! Have a great weekend :)
