The final Barcelona page

The final Barcelona page.......but I think I'm inspired to carry on with making more pages of the other places we visited on this holiday now.
Shimelle's final challenge was to use up your scraps from the crop.......so this is a little bit of a cheat......I was busy all weekend.......so have only managed a few of the challenges.......but 3 of my pages have used the K & Co Addison paper.......so this one is made from the scraps of that......and I used all the tiny little pieces to make the rosettes. I really like how the page has turned out.
The coach dropped us off at the top of Las Ramblas at lunchtime and OH and I spent the afternoon slowly wandering down this amazing road taking in all the sights.......I loved all the stalls selling paintings and was very tempted by one.......I finally decided not to buy it.......and then spent the rest of the holiday regretting it.......just like I regretted not buying a rug in Tunisia......I really am much too cautious!!!!

I love the unified feel this page has, yet there are so many patterns working together - just like Las Ramblas really!! Super page.

We stayed very close and walked up and down it every day - a fascinating place.

I'm a bit like that too when it comes to holiday buying. Actually, I'm a lot like that.

I love the rosettes here and how they remind me of all the decoration on the buildings there

Beautiful page Jacky! I love the rosettes and pattern mix. This is encouraging me to scrap my pictures from last summer (quick before this summer rolls around - LOL!)
