Another Bali layout. I will be coming to an end of them soon … I promise …

This one is about our driver Tana who drove us from Tanah Lot to Ubud, and a few days later from Ubud to Seminyak. He was such a friendly fellow and knew all the places to take us. We gave him an open-ended brief as to where to go on our way from Tanah Lot to Ubud and he took us places we hadn't necessarily thought about. He was very thoughtful, and even though his English wasn't always the best we had a great time together. I can highly recommend him and if you're ever travelling to Bali, I'd be happy to pass on his email ☺.

Anyway, the layout! This one was for the Stuck?! Sketches - April 1st sketch challenge. The sketch was fairly straight forward as is my final result. Still, I like it. I guess I just really like simplicity. All the papers, cardstock, embellishments and letter stickers came from Collage Press - Knave of Hearts Collage Crafting Kit. My only addition not from the kit were the rhinestones from Kaisercraft (colour: split pea).

I really liked the fact that one of the papers in the kit was a large bingo card sheet. Several of the squares were 'stamped': Reserved for personal use only. I thought that was pretty apt seeing as the only people Tana was driving those days were members of our family ☺.

So, that makes six online challenges completed this month! WOW! I've never been on such a roll. I completed the challenge kit from my LSS, Wrapped in Paper this month too and turned that one in today. If I get a chance I'll post about it as well.

I'd love to hear your comments on this layout or any others if you get a chance. Sometimes I wonder whether there's anyone out there actually reading my ramblings?

Till next time, happy days!
