Bella Citta

Bella Citta...Beautiful City. Florence was such a place. I took so many photos on our half day whirlwind tour in that city. Everywhere you turned there were ornate buildings, churches, sculptures, fountains, and bridges. I scrapped many of my photos back in 2004, right after my trip, but still had an envelope full of ones I hadn't touched. I took out a few to scrap.

I had several October Afternoon Boardwalk papers from an order placed months ago. At the time the store was out of some of the patterns but had enough to interest me anyway. Recently I ordered some more of the collection, because I especially wanted one of the patterns I missed previously, one being a yellow print. I started the page with what I had, hoping my order would come in while working on it, (because I really needed that yellow!) Finally, I got antsy with my half thought-out, cut-out, and laid-out layout sitting around, and finished the page with some yellow paper scraps from another line.


Of course, my order arrived just an hour or so later. It figures.
