Peru: The Kids!

I finished another page last night for my Peru Honeymoon book. This page's inspiration was the cute Peruvian kids we saw along our trek across the Andes on day 2. Armed with crackers from the local market, they were always happy to see tourists along the trail. I found it interesting that they would be up there by themselves or just in small groups tending to a big flock of sheep or llamas for their family. And they always had sandals on! And here we had to bundle up in many layers...we were such wimps. (That's probably what they thought of us...haha)

I used the latest Sketchy Thursday sketch for my layout. I added in a colorful circle of Fancy Pants paper to go with the kids' colorful dress but yet went with a neutral main page color to make sure it stood out at the same time. I enjoyed showcasing the photos in this type of a sketch. I did have to add a little bit of button bling in the corner just cause. :)

Paper - Solids (Stash - colors, Martha Stewart - off white), Patterned (Fancy Pants All Fall "In Line")
Embellishments - Alphabets (American Crafts Thickers), Buttons (Joanns), Alpaca (cut from a handmade card we got in Peru)
Sketch - Sketchy Thursdays 2.11 Sketch
