An Afternoon at the Cinema

Challenge #32 at Challenge Me Happy was to use a photo for inspiration.  It was a gorgeous photo (as you can see) and I had so many stories that would have fit perfectly with this.  We live in a city where lanterns are part of the history and culture, and where many of the celebrations have lanterns as part of their decorations.

I had received October's Scrapbook Circle Kit "News Flash" and it really helped me select the photo that I wanted to use.  I was lucky to have included in my kit some Crate On Trend Vellum Garlands that I just had to use.  Plus the colours of the Crate On Trend paper and Dear Lizzy's 5th & Frolic sticker's were just perfect - those gold stickers!! 

All of this, plus the above photo helped me choose my story I wanted to scrapbook.  This photo was taken at Chinese New Year (HUGE celebration) where the lanterns are out in force and they just bring such a happy vibe to the city.  It's a time to celebrate and enjoy being with family.
