It's Carnaval in my part of the world this week, that means I have an extra couple of days off and some extra crafting sessions! We went to see the parade with our little one on Sunday and she had a great time. At first, she was a bit overwhelmed with all the noise and dressed up people, but later on she started clapping to the music and had a big smile on her little face. Lovely :) Another challenge is also starting at the (P)inspirational Challenges, using this inspirational picture:
Hm, enough inspiration there to get anyone's crafty juices flowing, I believe! When I am trying to find products for the challenges, I always go through my 12x12 papers first and I came across a paper with faux stichting all over. This seemed like the perfect paper to use here, but which photo's to include? Staring at the page made me notice that the stitching looked very much like a road or even.....train tracks! Aha, I knew immediately which photo's would work; on Christmas Day last year, we traveled by train to see my parents! I also added some really stitching here and there. The rest came pretty easily. So, here is my finished page:
The title is Training Home 4 Christmas, inspired by the Chris Rea song :) Hope you enjoy my page and consider playing along with our challenge, you have 2 weeks to get your project finished and loaded up! We are sponsored by Pattie's Creations.

I love making scrapbook layouts, as it's a great way to reminisce and relive the great memories I've made over the years. I still get to play with paper, but on a grander scale and including writing and pictures, what's not to love about that!
