Qanat Al Qasba

This is my take on this weeks sketch over at
SOUS - Stuck On U Sketches....



The sketch - by BeggaHuna.....


Using my December '09 Half Tart Kit
from Lime Tart.....




Papers are Basic Grey "Nook & Pantry"
Subtitle - Eye of Dubai - Basic Grey
Basic Grey Bling It on top of Basic Grey doily.....


Bazzill cardstock
Flowers from stash
Circular jewel with blue bling from stash.....


Nestabilities - Labels Twelve
Title - Qanat Al Qasba - Cricut Winter Wonderland
Flourishes - Cricut Wall Decor & More.....


Photo's are from the trip DH and I made to
Dubai in July 2007 - they have been
waiting for just the right page to display them....

This sketch suits them perfectly....

The four small photo's show some of the
beautiful attention to detail in this
quiet tourist attraction that is
off the beaten track in Dubai.....


The wheel wasn't open when we were there,
so we didn't get a chance to go on it.
I'm sure the views would have been magnificent.....

Seemingly, they are currently constructing
a new wheel in Dubai - even bigger!!!!!

Must Google that.....

But it doesn't surprise me....
So looking forward to returning to Dubai one day
- have to see the Burj Dubai finished.
It was an awesome building even before it
was complete - must scrap those photo's.....

Hugs

Addit (2013) - the Burj Dubai was
renamed Burj Khalifa - and it is magnificent.
 Tallest building in the world!!
