Sydney LO

Wow, three layouts in three days and two of them were doubles (I can't show the LO I did yesterday for another fortnight)! I'm looking forward to a couple of days off before I get started on my next DT project due by the end of the week. As you can guess, another double means another entry for the Gold Coast Show. I can't decide if this one fits the category of 'Australiana' or if I should submit it in the open category. Please let me know your thoughts.

I was having trouble picking what colour paper would match my photos, so decided to try something different and used two different tourist maps as the main backgrounds. I quite like the effect that has been created. I've also added quite a few bits and pieces of memorabilia from our trip in pockets on this LO, as well as some various facts about Sydney on journalling strips.

This page has ticket stubs and transport tickets as well as a mini-booklet for all the journalling I wanted to include with this LO. The Opera House chipboard has a cool crackle effect on the paint.

This also fits the criteria for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge this month which was "Scrap about YOUR COUNTRY or ethnic group". Happy to be able to play along with them again, they're a very fun blog if you're looking for a new challenge.

Edit: Just realised I totally forget to credit Sketch Support for the fantastic inspiration for this LO.
