Hello everyone! I hope your weekend was nice, even with the very tragic event in Orlando. How awful and so sad. We spent a lot of time outdoors again this weekend. It is Monday again and this week at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge we have a World Traveller theme. Lots of options for this one.
I felt like doing a scrapbooking layout and remembered this A4 photo that I took quite some years ago in Johannesburg. It isn't a perfect photo, but I don't have a lot of photos of downtown Johannesburg (I rarely brought along my camera there), but it would have to do because I wanted to tell the story about my relationship to this big city. Every place has good and less good aspects, and when in a new place, I try to focus on the good ones. It took some time for us to become friends, but we did eventually, and there are lots of things from Johannesburg that I miss. The journaling is tucked in behind the layout, because it was too long.
The cityscape at the top of the layout was built with Nathalie Kalbach's stunning Urban Scribble set, which contains a cling stamp, a foam stamp where both sides can be used, and a stencil. I didn't use the stencil.
The title was die cut with Tim Holtz Wanted and Alphabet Typo Lower dies, from metallic kraft-core cardstock, and slightly sanded.
I hope you will join us in our World Traveller challenge. As every week, you have a chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp. You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.
