Cristina what a bright and cheery page, the background is colourful and the stickers really stand out. The gel elements are pretty too. Well done.

For my page I chose some photos taken when we visited Norfolk Island to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary (a few years ago now!). Norfolk Island is a fascinating place with a diverse history of dreadful convict treatment and later the Pitcairners making their home there. It is a lovely place to visit, but you can’t live there unless you have family or a job, and then there are restrictions. One famous person who lived there was Colleen McCullough, author of “The Thorn Birds” and other books.

The stitched element is the Officer’s House – my sister used to do a lot of cross-stitch and this was my way of copying her. It was a photo with a cross-stitch overlay added to it, the font is Home Sweet Home.

The two stickers are the gravestone of Peggie Chrstian, wife of Fletcher Christian who lead the mutiny, and part of a memorial to the Bounty, both of which I extracted and used Cassel’s tutorial to turn into stickers.

The three plastic elements are from Cassel’s plastic pocket freebie, which I divided into three so I could place them better.

The main font was Prida01.

Hope you like the page.
