INKATERRA Scrapbook Page for Orange Paperie & Co.

Spotted this awesome challenge out on Lizzy Hill's blog a while back and wanted to play along!

She got to make a page using these very bright colors and based hers off this image that is part of the challenge out at the Orange Paperie & Co.

I appreciate the fact she hooked me up with a new blog to play along with! Congrats to her too for being their Guest Designer for the month!

Tried to structure my page very similar to their photo. It was easy to find some good photos to use of this awesome hotel we stayed at that was very close to Machu Piccu. It was delightful with little waterfalls flowing here and there, tropical plants, ginormous humming birds, and a train that runs below it along the river. 

Here is a close up of the train & my hand cut title. I printed out their title on paper and then fussy cut the letters, adding some brown glitter and clear spray. 

This train is really the only way into Aquas Calientes which is the town at the base of Machu Piccu. They do say on Wikitravel that this town has officially been renamed Machu Picchu Pueblo but it was totally NOT called that when I was there! They also talked about the rapid development that was happening as a result of tourism. It was very busy with lots of work going on. Strong little Inca guys running everywhere pushing concrete up hills and barking orders. It was a great place to people watch. 

The Inkaterra Peublo Hotel was just off the beaten path enough to really relax you. They really cater to someone who is interested in wildlife and the rainforest. I even took a photo of the little bag they left as a gift and left on my bed to use as a diecut! Can you see it hiding under the awesome chip board bird sent to me by Jean?

Also added some tropical looking flowers in and a leaf full of gems! It is fitting as they even offered orchid tours!

Anyhow, hope you enjoyed my brief journey back to Peru. It seems like almost yesterday when I was there!

Friday is here tomorrow! Hope your week has been awesome!
