Scrap Girls World Tour 2022


Recommended Posts

Here is my Marrakesh colorful layout.   We sure did a lot of shopping while we were there! 

A choice between lavender fields or wine? Oh dear! Hmmm....  I think I'll take the winery tour as I love learning how wine is made.  Andrea @alsoarty , will you bring me back a lavender sachet or two? And I'll bring you some grapes!

They look like they're dressed for dancing!       And we even have two dancing penguin emoticons.

While I certainly don't have any problems coming up with photos for heritage layouts, I'm focusing on getting the albums from 2000-2002 completed, so I'm doing a layout of my grandmother's funeral (20

I love the idea of going to Provence in France and staying in a Chateaux.....hope there are no ghosts 😱
What to choose is difficult as I love going to Lavender fields but don't fancy making perfume but making soap instead would be good. I rather fancy the vineyard tour but not sure about the colours,,,,such a hard decision. Can wee do both :)

You can combine the photos for inspiration. I'm fine with that. :)

Whether it was the perfume or the wine, some of us awoke with headaches this morning. Our host has a few herbal remedies to try. A bit of lavender oil may help as well. You can find me relaxing and reading a book by the chateau’s pool.

I certainly was one with a headache and it was a humdinger, sniffing all that lavender and the wine tasting :) Such a great day though :) 
I used the sky as my inspiration and this photo is the changing view from our lounge and garden everynight :)

Here is my "Provence Inspired" page. In the Garden with Grandpa. I know, it is a bit of a stretch, especially when I have a whole series of these photos from the summer.

Oh how cool to have photos from the garden with YOUR little ones and then photos in a lavender field with THEIR little ones!

Pool and lavender sounds good to me.   The water is really warm, I've been floating around and using the hot tub.   I heard they'll deliver poolside so I ordered pancakes and eggs - anyone want to join us?

Here is my Provence page I chose to go with the lavender theme because we went to this unique distillery in Colorado

Here's my Provence layout. I was inspired by the beautiful light in both photos.

Ah... this is the most relaxing day we've had so far on our World Tour. I love the scent of lavender and the poolside service. @MariJ I'll definitely join you for pancakes! I think they might even be special French crepes! (Or maybe both?) Yum! That lavender honey is a special treat, too.

I chose the winery photo for my inspiration. I had actually completed and posted another layout but then I remembered that I might have a photo from Napa. So I deleted my other layout and did this one.

I had trouble with the size again. However I found a way to fix it. Long story short, I started a new layout and dragged all my layers from the layout that was too big. I was able to resize it like I always do and upload it. Not sure why it does it in the first place but I'm happy I way to work it out.

Tuesday, September 20th   
Last night we sailed through the Mediterranean and have arrived at the Amalfi Coast. This region preserves the old Italy; one rich with unique architecture, culinary influences, and fabulous landscapes. Enjoy pastel-hued fishing villages, amazing views, and plenty of Italian food. The Amalfi Coast stretches over 25 miles connecting picturesque villages, lemon terraces, vineyards, and stunning cliffs with beautiful views over the azure blue sea.

A single photo can’t show all the beauty of this region.  
Start a layout with at least 3 photos.

My Provence page: Grevilleas was inspired by the lavender colours, flowers and the rows of lavender bushes so my photos are in a row.

Grrrr, Gremlins on the cruise ship too?   I'm glad you figured out a workaround but how frustrating!   😱

Oh my I've always wanted to visit Amalfi and waking up here this morning was a beautiful sight to see!    I think I'll check out the tours today, I'd like to see the fishing villages, tour the coast to take photos and of course, sample the foods!

What's everyone else thinking of doing, maybe we can go as a group?    Heard of anything good?

My inspiration for the Provence, France challenge was the beautiful skies.  
My photos are from last fall's vacation to Dauphin Island, AL where the sunrises (and sunsets too) are spectacular!

I loved visiting the lavender fields and it made me feel so relaxed.  I also enjoyed my perfume making class, but they gave us an option to make some scented lotion so I created a lavender vanilla blend.

Today we’re heading to the island of Capri to admire its natural wonders like the Blue Grotto and the Augustus Gardens. The color Capri is named after the color of the Blue Grotto as it appears on a bright sunny day.

Add something blue to your layout.

I do like that lovely blue waters of the Blue Grotto.

Sadly I have been called away on family business but hope to return and catch up on the tour in a few days.

Ahhhhh, Capri!   I've always wanted to visit here, too.  We are waking up in the most gorgeous places each day, thank you Captain April!  

Our tours yesterday were a lot of fun, Andrea and I took so many photos!  📷  @alsoarty

Does anyone have any ideas of what to do today?   I'd like to do some touring, but I'd also like to find a spot where you can swim in these beautiful waters.   Such stunning colors all around us.   I wonder if the water is warm?   

We've been having such a wonderful time, but I'm getting tired!   So I guess it's first off to breakfast, hope to meet some of you there and make some plans.

On another note:  I heard some loud partying last night, do you think any ScrapGirls were involved????    😱

:having-a-party:👯‍♂️🥳
