Santiago

I have only a couple of pages left to share about my Interrail trip to Spain in 2001, then I’ll go back to everyday life! It was not my intention to scrap for so long about just one topic (or to use only one collection) but I had waited so long to scrap these pictures for the already mentioned reasons (old film pictures with no backup) that once I had finally decided myself to start I wasn’t able to stop!

Santiago was different from the rest of the vacation because I went there on my own, solo. That day I was in Vigo with my travel companions but they had decided to spend the day on the beach, and I really don’t like sunbathing, so I just took a train and went to Santiago on my own, spent the day there and then went back to Vigo and met my friends to take another train to somewhere else (yes, that’s Interrail!) What I like about this story is that I was already showing signs of how I really like to travel: alone!

For this page I’ve used (guess what) Amy Tangerine’s Rise and Shine collection, in particular I have used my favorite piece: the transparency with multicolored mandalas! I also added some gems and shiny blue star sequins and I really like how it turned out!

The Fountain

I don’t remember where this photo was taken,  but it was the last picture of the vacation and will be the closing page in my Interrail album. My friend and I were both radiant in this photo and it’s really a good memory!

For the layout I’ve used paper and embellishments from Amy Tangerine Rise and Shine collection, the word ‘shine’ is from Dear Lizzy Serendipity

Orange Trees

One more page for my Interrail 2001 album: Granada had orange trees everywhere and I loved wandering around the gardens, taking pictures of the trees. I even collected some of the leaves and dried them between the pages of a book!

The lemon background sheet is from Dear Lizzy Serendipity collection, the rest of the supplies are from Amy Tangerine Rise and Shine collection.

On the roofs

Another beautiful city in Spain is Segovia: between its castle, the cathedral and the astounding Roman aqueduct, one can only be amazed by this city! This picture was taken on one of the high panoramic viewpoints near the aqueduct, and I loved the contrast between the red/brown of the roofs, the sudden and endless yellow of the fields surrounding the city and the white of the cloudy sky! I wonder how impressive it would look on a sunny day! Maybe I should go back one day…

For this layout I’ve used papers and embellishments from Amy Tangerine Rise and Shine collection, plus some (very fragile) cork stickers from Crate Paper Journey collection, alphas also by Amy Tangerine and some wooden stars from one of the Studio Calico kits.
