Cristina that is a very cheery page, the colourful background and your choice of elements are really good. Very nice.

For my page I chose some photos of Norfolk Island where we went a few years ago to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary. It is a lovely place but has a very diverse history – the convict days were very dark, however the Pitcairners have really thrived and there are so many families now that are direct descendants you keep meeting Christians, Quintals, Adams and many others.

The stitched element is one of the officer’s houses in Quality Row, a photo with a cross-stitch overlay. The font is Home Sweet Home. My sister used to do a lot of cross-stitch, I used this photo for a birthday card for her.

The two stickers are the gravestone of Peggie Christian, Fletcher Christian’s wife, and a plaque of the Bounty, both of which I extracted and followed Cassel’s sticker tutorial for.

The three plastic elements are from Cassel’s Pocket freebie which I divided into three to make them easier to place.

The main font is Prida01.

I have included a picture of the cross-stitch as it doesn’t show very well in the resized page.
