I love perusing scrappers blog posts because sometimes I hear about challenges that way.
This one is no different and I loved it because well, it looked like a house AND had four spots I could possibly put photos.
Thanks for a great post Sian and hooking me up with this sketch from over at Sketchbook365 that is based on a layout made by...well Sian! This doesn't close until mid next month, so plenty of time to have a go of it!
Here is the journaling so you don't have to squint. It is not ALL the journaling from that day, but takes me up to my next page that I want to show you tomorrow. Attempting to start working in order now to fill in the gaps in my scrapbooks from that trip.
Sunday September 23rd:
After a great night’s rest, I woke up and took an early morning tour around Sol y Luna and looked at their gardens. Amazing flowers and sweet colorful buildings! I was wishing we had another night there! After a delicious breakfast of typical Peruvian things to eat, we were off to visit the town Ollantaytambo and the Incan ruins. Where our bus parked, there was a small market and Dad bought us all walking sticks and a water bottle holder. The walking sticks were pretty snazzy, but at the time I recall thinking he was nuts. I was sure I did not need one of those silly things. I was so wrong! Then we got to the base of our hike up to see the ruins…and I was ever so happy for one!
We saw several really cool things when we got to the top. The first was a rock that had been left in place by an Inca builder and showed specifically how the large stones were moved into place. The theory is that this site was both a temple and a fortress, but work stopped in the middle of building it. The temple part was also amazing. The carved rock and sheer smooth rock face truly seemed like a place of worship.
Making this page coincided with cleaning the scrap area and I found these great chippys from a kit I had. So, I used a bunch of scraps and some dimensional modge podge and got them all set up like little paper gems.
Here is a shot of the second side. I now have a hankering for more chippies like this and to alter them. They got so pretty shiny and blingy!
Hop on over and have a play if you want. I think it's a great sketch. Of course Sian's post of what she scrapped is also very interesting. I like to have all the details when I'm eye ballin' a page myself. I must have scrapper stalker tendencies.
