Marrakesh Express Sketch Challenge

This is my take on our July Sketch by "Suepup".   This month's kit at Scraps of Darkness is called The Marrakesh Express and Mel has put together another beautiful kit!!  This month features some very pretty and colorful papers by Christine Adolph through Creative Imaginations.  The kit and add-ons are just beautiful jewel colors and tons of Prima flowers!!!

This is a photo of my hubby back in 1988 when he was sailing with some friends.  They sailed in Austrarlia and then on to Bali.  That's him on the left in his sarong on the sailboat.  I used the beautiful Lumnarte shimmering watercolors to alter the chipboard and Dusty Attic border.  For the bordering circles I used the Shimmerz  Paint (Mama Sings the Blues and Mon Shari) to mist the orange papers.  The Prima Flowers ( Shalimar Col Amia) I used on the border.  I also used the beautiful jewel pieces from Prima (Candy Gems Jelly Bean) included in the kit.  I can't remember where I got the chipboard from, sorry but I used the Lumnarte shimmer paints on those too.   The stones that are scattered around the layout are some gorgeous opals that my hubby picked up on his travels while sailing and I thought they were a nice touch!  After he showed them to me and let me use them I found them in my jewelry box!!  He's the best!!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!!
