"A flight at the park"

Hello friends and followers!

I wanted to scrap some photos from our visit to a huge park here in Athens called "Tritsis park". It has lakes with ducks,fishes and turtles and small or big wooden bridges, a lot of green everywhere! Trees, flowers, grass to play ball, coffee house and playgrounds! We could not see the whole park due to the lack of time but we will visit again soon! There are even horses in there that you can ride!!!

I decided to play with a few challenges such as CSI #19 and the sketch from Sketchbook365 by Morag Cutts. Also a new challenge blog "The happy scrappers"

Color: I have used all the colors
  • Use pleating -- pleat ribbon, paper, etc.
  • Make paper rosettes. 
  • Book papers
  • Use circular accents.
  • Birds
  • Use floral prints.
Write in the form of a diary entry or as a series of diary entries. (on the tag)
Inspiration Words:  flight (they loooved the ducks so I used that for my title)

Here is my take:

and this is the sketch:

Of course it is a great chance to show off a few amazing Purple Pumpkin buttons and twine colors!

Materials used:
Papers: Webster's pages, Fancy Pants
Flowers: Webster's pages, Prima
Letter stickers: Sassafras
Die: Spellbinders
Buttons and twine: Purple Pumpkin (they have a sale on 7pm (Brisbane) Friday 25th May)
Inks: Ranger
Butterfly punch: Martha Stewart
Resin bird:Prima

Thanks so much for visiting!!!
