Rainbow Bridge




Here is another page I did for my contest. These pictures were taken last summer on our trip to New York for the family reunion. We went a day early and saw the sights at Niagara Falls. We actually took this picture of Rainbow Bridge. The two beauties in the lower left are my two girls.

I used Tempting Turquioise for the page base and ran a strip of whisper white along the bottom edge. When I tried another white strip along the top, it just didn't click. I tried using the index pictures from our trip along the top and thought it looked pretty cool! This will be the first page in our vacation album. The index pictures being a bit of a preview of what is to come. I added some Basic Grey rub ons over the pictures and the page base to pull it all together. The awesome handwriting is not mine...I printed what I wanted out on the computer and then put it on my handy-dandy light box and traced it with my favorite white gel pen. It looks like an easy page, but it took some time and thought. The rubon on the bottom actually climbs up onto the picture of the girls which I popped up with some dimensionals. That was tricky...but not too bad.

If you have never been to Niagara....you really need to go! It is a beautiful place. We spent the day getting soaking wet in several different spots and then went to the Canadian side to see the Falls lit up at night. We also ate pizza while we were there...yes, with Canadian bacon, and my kids were sure that Canada had the best pizza in the world! (That is what happens when you don' t let the kids eat for hours!)

Hope you are having a great weekend!
