Killer Vampire Bugs from Hell

An odd title, and an odd subject for a scrapbook page, but these bugs form one of the memories from our holiday in Canada last year.

They were the black flies that we encountered in Red Bay. The females feed on human blood, and they were determined to have us for lunch. We could feel them biting and we were able to squash them, but by then they had done their worst. The bites spoiled our day, sending us back to the ship early, and they itched for days afterwards.

I chose Sketch 98 from Sketch-n-Scrap for my page. I only had one picture of the flies, but I sourced a drawing from the internet to go with it and split my title and journalling across the other two quadrants.

I'm sticking to black titles in this album (in a variety of fonts) but I didn't have any small black letter stickers; these are actually woodgrain stickers that I coloured with a marker.
