Mon Feb 4 Stars and Stripes Challenge


Mon Feb 4 Stars and Stripes Challenge

I'm a fan of Donna Leon's Inspector Brunetti mystery novels. They take place in Venice, and the Questura is where the Inspector works. Imagine how excited I was when I saw the actual Venice Questura! So here's a layout for any other fans out there. TFL!
PS -- Ok, so the "star" is a starfish. It seemed to fit the theme. ;)



    Fabulous photo and fabulous layout!
    How exciting for you, love the background blending, looks very watery like! TFS xxx
    What a lovely LO and a very cute idea for stripes and stars. I think the starfish is a great idea! Also love the colors in this, too. How perfectly the coral blends with the color of the building. What could be more perfect for a photo from Venice than a sea-based collection!
    What a great photo - your choice of paper and embellies match the colours so well.
    I so love that blue/white stripe paper and it looks great with the coral beachy embellishments and works with your photo colors so well! That's a pretty cool police boat in the shot too!
    How cool that the star is a starfish!! How cool that you got to see the police station in person! Thanks for joining the challenge!
    So cool Diane. The photo looks like a watercolor. I love the fact that you treated such a special picture so simply, yet so effectively.
    So pretty! I like how you used the striped paper and the lifted frame. Beautiful work!
    How'd I miss this wonderful page? Your photo as always is gorgeous, I am truly feeling I have traveled through Italy. I really like the collection you used and the large coral and star -- sure, that's a star. Your background blending is great. Super layout.
    Love that you pulled the colors from the photos. Great page.
