Hey everyone! I've been working on a bunch of different projects and jumping around from year to year and event to event lately! So, I'm leaving my Disney trips behind for today and venturing over to Foggy London Town for a layout I made from our trip up the London Eye last summer.

For those of you unfamiliar with the London's like a giant ferris wheel on the bank of the Thames River in...yes, London...and instead of sitting in a free-swinging seat, there are many different capsules which hold up to, I believe, 20 people at a time.

Now, I'm terrified of heights! Lisa is too, so I was super surprised at how gung-ho she was to try it out. The entire journey up and back down again takes 30 minutes. I was super scared and trying not to have a panic attack all the way up. By the time we reached the top and were on our way back down again I was feeling okay and actually headed over to the window to look out across the river at Parliament, Big Ben, and Buckingham Palace. Lisa and I snapped this pictures of each other with the rainy London weather in the background.

The London Eye

I primarily used Echo Park's new Note to Self collection and incorporated some Studio Calico stamps into the mix.

I stamped the Instax-y looking stamp on patterned paper, cut it out and stamped the image again, this time cutting around the inner portion of the frame and adhering it to the middle of the original stamped image. I'm very pleased with the result.

For added interest, I stamped a camera image and trimmed around it and placed it inside one of the frames.

Supplies: patterned paper, stickers, and letter stickers - Echo Park; stamps - Studio Calico; washi tape - Cosmo Cricket; stamp ink -
Jenni Bowlin (Ranger); spray mist - Studio Calico
