Life is a road lo

This page was published in Oct/Nov 2010 issue of SNR magazineThis page made TOP 5 on Scrap it with song- thanks
I wanted to do a page for Scrap it with a song  Life is a highway song- but didn't find any idea
Finally I decided that our overseas vacations are our life- we love it  deeply and try to be abroad 3-4 times a year,possibly in  a very different places.Thes year is was China, Morocco and Italy and we are going to Spain to visit our son in a few days
Also we can't travel for more than 10 days due to work obligations- we enjoy our short jumps here and there and have lots of photos I almoust  never scrap
So this page was 6 photos one- more than I did in my whole life on one lo and it was a try to cut the regular photos to long strips without any other persons or objects I don't want to remember
With so many photos you need to cut with a busy paper- so I just used BG cardstock as a base and some BG strips around
Two vertical strips are stickers and I used 4 fonts for my title as no set was  new- so here we have MM,ATD,Prima amd MLS letters, 2 kinds of ribbons pleated- sorry about not knowing the brands of these  old ribbons
Then I made my own paper flower using stickers, brad from Paper studio and some 3d glue
I also made 2 chipboard buttons from Heidi Swapp premade chipboards and added thread and glitter glue and embellished another chipboard flower with glitter and bling
And as Moroccan style is colorful and blingy lots of other blings were added over the stickers  and the page
For techniques I did white pen faux stitching and border punching and after all with 6 photos  I still have a lot of white space also it's  dark blue one
And as life is a road- all the photos are the one  with going anywhere or moving
And now for the challenges for this
Fonts for I did it creations
Border punch for Crafty sentiments
Ten different manufacturers- I have even more- for Scrap your crap
Embellishments for Other lovelies
Three pp for Paper cutz
Aqua color-pp and embellishment for Pink elephant
Punches for Tuesday throwdon
Flowers for Creative card crew
Numbers for Belli- I used this 2010 in my title
Blings for Creative cottage
Flowers for Craft

Irit this is a lovely page for what I'm sure holds memories of a wonderful time. Such a small twist as turning the 's' on it's side can really make a lot of difference. I love this. Thanks so much for joining us at Scrapping with I Did It Creations.
