Illuminasia by Linda

Hi everyone,

I'm here today with a two page layout that I did using Creative Scrapbooker's June Sketchy Challenge.

The word pages were cut 9x12, the green photo mats were 4.5x4.5, the blue mats were 4x4, and the photos are 3.5x3.5.  I used word strips at the top and bottom of the word pages, and the title was cut out on my cricut.

In 2015 the Calgary Zoo hosted the Illuminasia Lantern & Garden Festival that featured 366 handmade Chinese lanterns.  It was incredibly beautiful and the City Lights paper collection was perfect to highlight all the amazing colours.

I kept the embellishments pretty simple on these layouts and just used some of the City Lights flair buttons here and there.

Except for this guy!  This is another cricut cut using the yellow paper from the Back to Basics collection, which I blinged up with sequins from the Talk Foodie to Me collection. 

If you haven't been to the Calgary Zoo, aside from the fabulous animals, they also have a Prehistoric Park full of very realistic dinosaur robots that breathe, move, roar, and even blink when you walk up to them.  My grandchildren love them!

The Chinese lanterns were just incredible and it was a beautiful, out-of-this-world experience to walk through the dark zoo full of glowing, life-sized animals!

I love the bright colours in City Lights, and the city names that we Canadians are familiar with!

Thanks for stopping by!

Linda
