Guest DT member for Scrap Africa!

Second post in just over a day!  Most unusual for me. I know.  I did say yesterday that I will have something exciting to share in today's post... and now you know!  I am totally thrilled to be a Guest DT member at SCRAP AFRICA this month!  You can read all about the new challenge and see the reveal of all the gorgeous layouts from the rest of the DT members HERE.
So the challenge is:
Use postage stamps on your layout, old, new, rubber stamped stamps, whatever you have in your stash!!  You have until the 31st of January to get your entries in!

 

Here is my example.  I've used the Kaisercraft 'Check In' collection.  It's a gorgeous range suited for all your travel photos.  The photo is of my DD while on holiday in Bali during early December 2012.  My main focus was to try and convert the photo into a postage stamp, therefor the money value near the top of the photo. 
A close up of some of the embellishments.  The smaller stamp 'frame' was made using an older Cuttelbug die I had in my stash for ages. :)






 Some of the tickets that come with this range. :)
 And my journaling on a tag, just to fit in with the theme. :)
That's all for today! Hope you are having a great day and a lovely week! Thank you so much for visiting!
Until next time!
