Yes!! to Adventure

Hi Everyone.
Today I thought I'd try something a little different.......scrap a page/layout without a photo! 
Eeek! This is a big challenge for me because I'm all about the photos, oh and yeah, the words, I'm all about the words too.
A little while ago, I ordered some 12x12 overlay transparencies from All About Scrapbooks
I knew I wanted to do something a little different......
but it had just sat in the 'to do' pile (or should I call it the 'going around in my head' pile).
So today's the day.....
Yep, I've scrapped straight onto the overlay......it's my actual layout. 
I thought the clear would look awesome in my scrap album - add some real interest and a fun element.
I was pretty happy with how it turned out.  I added some white gesso and black paint flicks to help bring out the transparency - clear look.
I am currently in the process of planning an overseas trip!!
How exciting!!
It's been on the itinerary for a long time, however, there's been a few hurdles to overcome to get to this point.  But now it's all excitement and dreaming and planning (oh yeah and a bit of happy dancin thrown in too!!) - somehow the uncertainty and hurdles have actually made it even more exciting!!  Isn't that life in general?
Makes me think of all my favourite quotes
"You've gotta have both sunshine and rain to have a rainbow"
"If it weren't for the darkness, we wouldn't see the stars"
Anyway, I've transgressed!!
Back to my layout.
I love the 2Crafty Chipboard on there - and how it's highlighted Point A and Point B.
I also added lots of arrow chipboards, and words.
I cut out a tag shape to put my title on, and finished it off with a few strips of washi tape.
This is the layout, photo taken on a white background.
 I love how the gold is really bold, and draws your eye in.
So who's gonna join in the challenge, and scrap a layout with no photo.  I'm sure there's stacks of life moments that you forgot to capture on camera.....but you can still scrap the memory!
See you next week.
Love Tam
