Come away with me....
Cant believe April is almost finishing!! Still so many challenges I havent gotten done - trying to pick up a few final ones. Above is this month challenge image from A2Z Scraplets. The balloons along with the blue and pink reminded me of the hot air balloon in the Graphic 45 "Come away with me collection" Also come with me/ come away with me - same thing right?? I tried to keep a circular element in the middle of the page like in the inspiration photo.
I initially had 5 photos to showcase this caving trip but I noticed the mid month challenge over at Picture This. The challenge is to use 3 photos and 'travel'. Well this is definately a travel layout, so I decided to use the criteria from Picture this as well. Im actually very glad I only used the three photos, any more would have been too cluttered.
This layout will be going into an album I have created for the Thailand tour we did last year. My sister lived in Thailand for awhile with her Thai husband and became very fluent in the language. She is also a fantastic organiser.... when she had her wedding there she decided to run a Thai tour to entice the guests to come to the wedding. The prices were very reasonable and everyone had a fantastic time. She is amazing at finding those special little hidden gems that tourists never see, and she was a seriously amazing tour guide so she decided to run another tour the year after, and now another coming up (so exciting)
By the way In case anyone is interested her tours are amazing, and family and everyone friendly... the next one is running in January 2015 (9th to 24th) and will be a massive bargain at around Aust $1200 (30 - 32 000 THB) per adult and under $500 for a child (final costing and itinerary not quite finalised) You can find her webpage here:
The photos I have used show one such hidden gem we visited on our last tour - a very unique caving experience. Completely off the usual tourist trail you could don a lifejacket and float through this spectacular cave. The kids and adults all had an amazing time and luckily someone had a waterproof camera.
