Scrap the Girls

Wow have done 2 Scrap the Girls challenges in a row.
Not the best photo (of either the layout of the subject) but I love it anyway.  This was the last night of our trip to New Zealand. We had just had a fabulous dinner on the Viaduct and we were walking back to our hotel. I love the light at this time of night.
I haven't done any fussy cutting for quite a while - this pp was perfect for that.  Have used chipboard and lots of flowers.

Black with 2

Joined in the Black with Two challenge.  For this month it is Black base plus White & Blue.  I immediately thought of this photo.

I kept the layout very simple as the photo really says it all.  I love the chipboard corner, it is so old - I painted it white, dry brushed it lightly with blue and covered it in dimensional magic.  Also found a chipboard frame and some vellum - old stuff!!!.  I also misted the background with chalk & teal, I love how the light is reflecting off it - a bit like the night sky.

We were heading back after dinner on our last night in NZ and I saw this reflection.  Tim used the little point & shoot camera, propped it on the light pole, and took this fabulous photo.  Later he went out with the better camera and took another photo of the sky tower with the moon.
