OUAS - So lucky

Hi everyone

I've played along with the sketch challenge over at OUAS this month, when I saw the sketch it immediately made me think of some photos I already had printed out on my desk. I love that sketches can help make how to scrap some photos a lot clearer! 

Here is my take on the sketch:

The prompt word, is LUCKY, and I have used it in both my title and my journaling, which reads:

The Trevi Fountain, the first "landmark" we visited in Rome on the start of our European adventure. It bought me to tears. We were here! I felt so very lucky and blessed to be able to enjoy all these places I'd only dreamed about!

It was the trip of a lifetime, I would be back in a flash if I could! Pity Australia is so far away from Europe!!

Thanks for visiting
