It's time for yet another reveal at My Creative Sketches and this month's sketch challenge is extra special! In honour of My Creative Scrapbook's birthday, its lovely owner Pam Rangel has put together not only one, but two gorgeous prize packs! And we also have an extra special sketch ... a two-page sketch!

This allows for multiple photos, which is great for a travel layout, so I decided to use photos from my DD's school trip to Taiwan from a year ago (yes, a long overdue project!).

I used Graphic 45's Bird Song collection, as I thought its oriental theme was oh, so suitable for a Taiwan layout.

I love the little lanterns, which I hand-cut and then layered for a 3-dimensional effect.

I also used pop-up foam dots for the main photo, title, journal strips and other embellishments, and punched and distressed some of the edges of the papers and cardstocks, so as to give the layout some texture and dimension.

Thanks so much for dropping by, and don't forget to hop on over to the MCS blog for more inspiration, and a look at the amazing prize packs up for grabs!
