Canada


I've never been to Canada,but my daughter and grandchildren visited there last year. So when I saw the 'Oh Canada' challenge at Use Your Stuff , I thought it'd be a good opportunity to scrap one of their holiday snaps.

I used a combination of papers from My Mind's Eye and plain cardstock. I designed and cut the title and the maple leaf on the Silhouette Cameo (actually the partial cutting on the leaf was a bit of an accident but I like it). I used lots of grey, to enter the challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge  and buttons for Lasting Memories.

    1. Thanks Gail -it's my daughter's photo so not sure exactly where taken - but she did have other photos of the CN tower, so you're probably right.
