When in Rome...

Hello again

Today I am starting at the beginning of our holiday, which began in Rome! We did an amazing tour of the Colosseum, Roman Forum & Palantine Hill. It was a bit too much for the kids, to quote Lily:

 "It's NOT interesting, it's just a bunch of bricks and rocks!" 

She's only 6, so I guess it was - though she has always liked collecting rocks so she should of loved it lol!

Anyway, for this layout I have used a photo I took of the outside of the Colosseum, before we began the tour. It is just mind-blowing that this has remained standing for almost 2,000 years.

I'm loving all the travel papers around at the moment - I've stocked up!  This map paper is part of Basic Greys Carte Postale range - love this range! I've also used some 2Crafty nested clocks, you can find everything here at  All About Scrapbooks.

Thanks for visiting
