Thursday

The one where our day started at 3.45am...


The-best-day

You didn't think a week would actually go by without me throwing in a little gold, did you? *winks* 


Back in March, I went to Taiwan with my parents and sisters. This documents the day we woke up at 3.45am [one bathroom + 4 people = crazy] to catch a car ride to the train station, take the train up to Alishan to join hundreds of tourists to watch the sunrise. 


This layout took a looooooooooooooooooong time because I glued down all the elements [to prevent myself from fiddling]...then decided it needed more mediums...*LOL* 


At least there was little waste...no paint/mediums under the fussy-cut papers and the photo collage....[self-consolation]...*winks*


A lot of shiny glittery textures....

Playing along with the challenge at Scrap Around The World.
