Heidi Swapp - Vintage Chic for All About Scrapbooks / Once Upon a Sketch Feb challenge

Hi there peeps, it's so lovely to have you visit today :)
We have had a fair drop in temps here this last week, which has been such a relief
to the 40+ that we've been having for weeks! 
It really does start to get to you when it's such high temps like that day after day! 
Anyways...on with the layout I'm here to share :)
This is my 2nd layout created for All About Scrapbooks, using Heidi Swapp's "Vintage Chic" collection.  This collection has the most gorgeous colours & patterns and I have really enjoyed creating with it.

My layout is for the Feb Once Upon a Sketch challenge
which has a journaling theme of "Totally addicted to...."
"Addicted to travel"

So this is my addiction (among other I am well and truly addicted to travel - there is just so much that I want to see, both in Australia & overseas! 
My list just keeps getting longer & longer....
Here is this months OAUS sketch, that I have rotated 90 deg clockwise & I've substituted the portrait photo for 2 smaller landscape photos :)
And a few close ups :)



This is my journaling...straight onto the background PP.
I also have more on the back of the layout listing some of the places that are on "the list"

These pics were taken from inside the plane when it was just about to land at Dubai, while we were on our way to Dublin last year.
I have more closeups, details on techniques etc, and a list of products used over on the AAS blog HERE, so I'd love it if you would pop on over for a looksie :)))
Thanks so much for visiting today....xx
