Thurs.Challenge 10/13 - Japanese Festival


Thurs.Challenge 10/13 - Japanese Festival

My Thursday challenge this week was to use 5 or more photos in a cluster.

Journaling:
For the fourth straight year, Krista, Matt, and I attended the Japanese Festival at the Missouri Botanical Gardens over Labor Day Weekend. By now, we are pros at navigating the Gardens and making sure to attend all of our favorite events, such as Sumo and Taiko. We have seen these two demonstrations each year, yet they never fail to amaze and impress us!! Nathan even had his photo taken with the Sumo wrestlers, although he is much too young to remember.
In addition to Sumo and Taiko, we also watched the “Candyman,” a street performer who created fantasy sculptures of spun sugar while entertaining the crowds with his tricks, conjuration, and lion-dancing. Of course, no visit to the Gardens would be complete without stopping to take a few photographs of the beautiful, colorful waterlilies!

    I love this page! You got a ton of photos on there without it looking crowded, and I really like the leading lines of the chopsticks drawing the eye across the page.
    FABULOUS!!
    I love your composition of layout here - so great!
    I agree with Cheri-lots of photos, but it isn't crowded! Well done!
    Fantastic page Theresa! Love all the photos you included too.
    This is awesome. The photos are wonderful and the journaling very interesting. Love the font.
    Wow, Tiza, your photos are great and I love the way you clustered them. Great journaling, too.
    Stunning!! Great use of so many pics, and the color scheme is subtle and bold at the same time (I don't know if you can actually do this?? ;)) SUBMIT IT!!!!
    Wonderful collection of photos. Great job. Love the choices you made too.
