What an interesting house - would not look out of place in a gothic horror movie. REally like the arrangement of photos and the blended pic in the bg.

I love your photos and the blending! Great embellies, too. This looks like a wonderful place to visit. I wonder if Sir Henry and Lady Pellatt ever got lost in it?

I went to Casa Loma several years ago, and I always chuckle when I watch the xmen film because they filmed the interior shots of Xavier's school there. They have lessons under the beautiful stain glass ceiling.

Once travelling on business I was in Toronto over the weekend and visited Casa Loma. I enjoyed taking my time meandering through this beautiful castle and is beautifully manicured grounds. I did not have my camera with me and I am so happy to see your layout. Will save as one of my Faves. Great photo template and layout!

Wonderful photos and blending! I love the grid design - and LOL to Diane's comment about whether the Sir and Lady ever got lost in their home:)
