This is one of the rare times that I wish I was still in grade school. I have an amazing topic to talk about when the teacher asks...what did you do on March Break...I went to Italy!! :)
My daughter's high school soccer team had the amazing opportunity to travel to Italy, see a prfessional soccer match and actually play soccer in Italy with 2 teams! It was the trip of a lifetime...and I got to tag along!
Here are a few highlights...
|The Vatican...we attended mass in one of the smaller chapels. Amazing.|
|A fountain, somewhere in Rome...|
|I fell in love with the doors of Italy.|
|Trevi Fountain...we made a wish...or two!|
|Such prettiness everywhere!|
|Arch of Constantine|
|Forum and ruins|
|Gelato...it's a good thing we did so much walking!|
|Juliet's balcony, Verona|
|The purpose of the whole trip...soccer with 2 Italian teams, Milan. We won 1 and lost 1.|
|Lazise, Lake Garda...I could have stayed here for days but we only had an hour.|
|And a gondola ride in Venice...priceless!|
I'm still in awe...
Ok, back to the real world....(it's hard, though!)
Here's today's card made for the challenge at CAS-ual Friday blog. The challenge is Bold and Beautiful, to use pastels with black.
Embossing folder is from Sizzix, patterned paper and stickers are from Stampin' UP!. I bought these at the LSS garage sale so I am guessing they are not current. Brad is from Making Memories, sticker is from SRM.
Thanks for dropping by, hope you have a wonderful weekend.
