What a View

The sketch challenge from Once Upon a Sketch for Feb 15th I just had to do.  The theme was holiday/vacations and I've had a few in my time.  And it got me thinking about all the places that we had visited but in the end there's nothing quite like home.  This is made even more poignant when you live abroad and your young children are growing up in a completely different environment to what they would have had they stayed in NZ.  So it made me take another look at it and I realised that when we visit NZ, to them it really is just another holiday destination.  And the other realisation I had was that when we do visit we see the country, and cities we visit, through their eyes.  And that isn't really a bad thing!

For this layout I used Scrapbook Circle's Note to Self kit.  This is one I've really enjoying using - especially playing with the corrugated chipboard. There are a few extra emblishments but the majority come from the kit.  I also sprayed the background with some Glimmer mist to give it abit more interest. 

Thanks for looking.
