Sketch Reveal at SOUS!

 
Welcome again.

My second post today!
 
It's another
Friday Sketch Reveal
 at
 
With a wonderful sketch from
 our Nanne to play with.
 



Nanne's Sketch...



It's all about the paper for
me this week.



Because, that's all I have used
 on this layout.



Paper!



The great collection from
 Teresa Collins
"World Traveller"



Photo's from our trip to
Paris last year.



Yep.
The Statue of Liberty
 in
Paris.



A much smaller version than the
 one in New York Harbour.
Made at the same time
 as the French gift to
 the USA.
 
And a point of interest, the two statues
face each other across
 the oceans!


Some really exciting news to tell.
 
I made this layout before
 hubby and I decided
 to
 
GO TO NEW YORK!!!!!!
 
My life time ambition is finally
 to come true!
 
So, at the end of August,
 we are off to
 New York,
Philadelphia
and
Washington DC.
 
I have had an unnatural fascination
 with the States since I
was 12 years old.
The result of a school project.
 We were each given a country
 to study, and I was given
 the USA!
 
I completed the school project
 at the time, but was hooked!
 
I have studied the Revolution
 and the Civil War extensively,
for no other reason than
 self knowledge.
 
I cannot wait to stand in front of
 Abraham Lincoln in DC,
 though sadly won't have
 time to visit Gettysburg.
 
Independence Hall
in Philadelphia.
 
Not to mention Liberty
and Ground Zero.
 
I even have ancestors
 that went through
Ellis Island.
 
All so exciting
 
Any of my American Blogging
friends in those vicinities,
would love to meet for coffee.
 
So, in 4 weeks we are off.
It's only taken 40 years!
 
Now, back to today....
 
Head on over to the
 and see what my fellow DT girls
 have done with the sketch.
 
Then join in the challenge.
 
Prizes to be won every month.
 
See you soon.
 
Hugs
