Island Escape

This is another page from Norway, scrapped with the May Week 1 sketch from Let's Get Sketchy, but with the papers behind the photo straightened up. I did start with them at an angle but they bugged me so I straightened them up on my page.

The photos are from our first port of call on a cruise last summer - Ålesund - but it was a town that we'd visited before so we looked further afield for something to see or do, eventually deciding to catch a bus to the adjoining island of Hessa (top photo) to walk/climb to its highest point, Sukkertoppen. 

I've decided to do all the Norwegian pages in my 2013 album on kraft cardstock as it's easy to repeat and will add some uniformity/continuity to that section. I've repeated a few of the papers from the last page too, including narrow strips from the map print paper.

Paper - K&Co Hannah, Unknown Map Paper, Simple Stories Awesome, Basic Grey Sultry
Letters - Basic Grey, All My Memories
Sticker - Simple Stories Take a Hike

Flowers - Great Expressions
Ink - dovecraft, Ranger Distress Ink
