Learn to smile!!

I'm working my way through my 2012 holiday album in no particular order......so when I saw this week's CSI Challenge 73 I knew which photos I wanted to use.
These are not really colours I'd have thought of putting together.....and are pretty bright for me.....but that's part of the fun of the CSI challenges......and this week I've used quite a few of their free downloads as well.
We spent a few evenings at a very pleasant bar we discovered near our hotel....there seemed to be a lot of locals hanging out there as well....always a good sign. On our last evening we decided to have a meal there as well as a few drinks.....a good decision.....and their cocktails were worth every penny euro.
Looking at the photos it looks like we were both completely fed up....when we actually had a really enjoyable evening....though we may have been a little tired by then......not to mention full of alcohol!!!!! We need to learn to smile for the camera though!!

Glad you were both having a good time, a picture doesn't always tell the true story!

It's a perfect holiday colour scheme. With all the circles, it makes me think of sun and sea. A welcome sight as this morning's blue skies are turning back to grey here!

I love your layout and how you put little bits of this and that together. The color combination is refreshing too.

Great colors. I've seen the CSI starting to pop up more and more often. Will have to figure it out.

I so love that you've scrapped these photos, so often Simon & I take photos of each other and they never show the true story ... I think it comes from suddenly have a camera staring at you lol. Fabulous layout

Such a fun layout (LOVE the colors!), Jacky. So funny - this reminds me of a couple that Carrie and I saw while we were in England. He took a photo of her, not smiling. Then she took a photo of him, no smiling. When they held the camera out to do a selfie, I offered to take it for them and was told no thank you. So they took a photo of themselves, not smiling. Carrie and I shared a good laugh over it later, and even took a selfie in that fashion - not smiling. :o)
