Love Park: Peru

Yet another Peru page complete!

This page features the Love Park of Lima, Peru, that we seemed to be drawn to a lot during our trip. We saw this same park no less than four times from various tours. It was the staple attraction each tour guide made sure that we saw when in Lima. We took each visit in stride and looked for new ways to photograph the elements of the park while we were there. One trip produced these fun photos as we explored the mosaic walls surrounding the main feature, The Kiss statue.

Only fitting to post this page this week, as they hold contests in this park around Valentine's Day in Lima. I bet come Sunday many Peruvian couples will be heading here to see if they can kiss the longest. It's a contest that has been a tradition since the park was dedicated on Valentine's Day in the 1970's.

I was inspired by Scrap & Stamp Saturday's Inspiration Challenge going on this week. The inspiration image had four boxed elements (hence my four pictures). I was also influenced by one of the design team's pages where she had text in the middle of her four photos. My stamp used on this page is one I got recently while being the guest designer for Tuesday Morning Sketches from DRS Designs.

Paper - Patterned (ColorBok), Solids (DCWV and stash)
Embellishments - Thickers (American Crafts), White Gel Pen (Sakura), Heart Stamp Border (DRS Designs), Embossing Powder (A La Mode)
