"Bella Italia"

aInspired by Tim Holtz, I tried to make my own background with alcohol inks from adirondack.
My embellishments are from different places and the big stamp is from Stampotique. I tried to stamp some fashion images in distress ink but you can heardly see them. The big fashion bag is just perfect, I would say...
We (the family) spent christmas 2007 in Rome and we sure had a lovely time. Those days we were running from one historical monument to the other and we all fell in love in this wonderful city. Eating well and enjoying life!
In april we went to Milano with some friends - only for a day. There we went shopping. But to be honest we didn't buy very much- when you have to pay like 15 Euro for an icecream you don't feel stupid enough to pay overprices for something else... But of course we all came home with lovely shopping bags from Italy!
Pizza, pasta , fashion, leather, shoes, bags, history, colosseum, gelati, red wine, romantic movies,emotions, vespa... BELLA ITALIA!!!
