|5th November 2011|
The 5th November consisted of a full day in Wales, whilst away with one of my best friends, Kirsty. We were staying just outside a tiny village called Crugybar, and decided to head over to Carmarthen for the day, to visit the market. On the way, we passed a gorgeous lake and got out to wander around for the little while; there were loads of wild birds and Red Kites! The photo top right is the lake, with a framed photo of two Kites. Bottom left is actually the view from my bedroom window that morning, but it was so beautiful that I wanted to include it anyway! You can't really see from the angle of the photograph, but a lot of the pieces are 3D on this page; the stamps, frame, top title and some of the flowers are all raised, and accented with coloured pearls.

The 6th November was the day we came home. But we made a day of it (partly because we got fantastically lost in the mountains!). We managed to accidentally find Pen-Y-Fan; the highest point in South Wales, which is sitting in the top right corner. Underneath is a mountain I don't know the name of, but I really liked the picture! And of course, a photo of Kirsty and I just before we left the cottage that morning. I love this page. It's so cute and happy! Again, lots of it is 3D; some of the flowers, the birds, pink statements, and rainbow. I also added gems to the flowers centres to make them a bit more fun! Most of the embellishments on this page are K&Co's Panacci Blossom, which I recently purchased on eBay, after lusting after them for a while! I also used my Washi tape for the first time in my scrapbook! So far it's only featured in my journal, but I figured it fitted in here nicely and used it! That was the reason I bought it in the first place, after all!
Anyway, really, really pleased! What do you think?
