This week I finished two more pages from our trip to Thailand in January with Close To My Heart. The pictures on these pages are from the night we arrived in Bangkok. We landed around 10 pm and were checked into our room a little after midnight. You would think that after traveling about 24 hours we would be exhausted and collapse into the bed, right? Well kinda...our bodies may have been tired, but our brains said it was about noon because of the 12 hour time difference from home.
So instead of going to bed, we left our room and explored the beautiful Anantara resort. We checked out the pool, located the spa and breakfast area and wandered over to the dock overlooking the Chao Phraya River. This river is a major transportation alley through the city of Bangkok so during the day, it is busy with river taxi and other boats. But at night, it was tranquil and somewhat magical with the lights from the bridge and the market reflecting on the water.
Both of these pages have stamping using the exclusive Thailand stamp set we were given with the album kits, the Splash of Color stamps (love the splashes!) and the Pen Pal alphabet stamp set.
The title "LIGHTS" on the second page was cut from Canary cardstock using the Block Alphabet Thin Cuts. These die cuts are the perfect size for scrapbooking titles and you'll see letters cut with them throughout this album. I popped them up with 3D Foam tape to add a little more dimension.
This week I nearly finished several more Thailand pages, but the deal with this challenge was that they only count if they are completely done. So that's all I have for this week.
Tally: My goal for August is to complete 20 pages. I finished 2 this week which brings my total up to 16 pages and I have 4 to go!
How many pages have you done? Comment your count below before next Friday and you'll be entered to win a new product bundle from the Holiday Expressions Idea Book! We'll have one final check-in next Friday (8/31) so be sure to check back in. I'll do the drawing on Tuesday, 9/4 at the Crafty Girls BINGO night.
