Scrap Map Saturday ~ Memories

My latest entry for Scrap Map Saturday at Creative Craft World.

This is Melman back in November when we went to London to meet up with Susi and Maria. We went on the London Eye. I nearly cut into a gorgeous sheet of October Afternoon - Thrift Shop for this, but then I remembered that I had a map of London that I'd saved for scrapping purposes. So I glued the map to some cardstock to stiffen it up, making sure the South Bank was exposed so I could point to the London Eye.

This week we had to add flowers. Not the most floral layout in the world, so I punched some flowers from the road names on the back of the map.

When I was making the layout I forgot what day we'd been to London and meant to go back and fix that before taking the photo, I see now that I forgot!

I love how you've used a map as a background, this is a super idea. One I have used countless times on cards but it never even crossed my mind to do it on a layout!

A super page and Melman is lucky to have his own ribbon!
