Some of you know that my eldest son is studying abroad in Florence, Italy right now. As it happens, my niece is also studying there. She's at a different school and they're on different schedules (Michelle will be coming home this weekend), but they had a few weeks overlapping during their stay, which I think is so cool. Here's a photo of Joey and Michelle with the Arno River and Florence's Duomo behind them:
This photo is really getting me excited about my upcoming trip to Italy - next week! But more about that later...
I want to show you the previews for SAS' new mega kit, Oriental Cherry Blossoms. It's really lovely and best of all it's on sale right now. For only $5.98, you get 60 papers, 101 elements, and even a bonus quick page.
So with Joey's stay in Italy and my upcoming trip there, naturally I needed an Italian-themed kit for our layouts. Hence, I created Ciao Italia.
This weeks freebie is an awesome Quick Page made with Ciao Italia, created by CT Kay. Please take a moment to stop by Kay's blog and leave her some love. We enjoy giving freebies and samplers away, but it always makes us feel really good to get comments from you guys. By the way, Kay also has some great Quick Pages on her blog that you can download, but hurry because I don't know how long they will be there.
Here's a layout I made - quickly! - using this Quick Page:
