Week # 2 Sharing the Journey

'Playa del Carmen - Mexico'

Challenge = to create hidden jounaling that helps to tell your story
Journalling on Carousel Notes, Soft Sky scalloped circle and Brown envelope


Journaling down the page reads:
* We stayed at the Gran Portorea' in Playa del Carmen - Mexico June 2006
* We had the best room in the hotel - It really was 'A room with a view" - to die for!!
* Hasan and I had the best holiday ever!! we both hope to go back one day :)

Journaling on scalloped circle reads:
Imagine drawing the curtains and gazing out of your room at this tranquil view! Well that's exactly the view we had every morning from our bed in Playa del Carmen in Mexico. It was so picturesque watching the little boats bobbing up and down in the water, we could see right along the coastline to the horizone. We could hear tourists laughing as they walked along the beach and the 'shrills' from the children as they splashed in the shallows. The water was a tourquoise color, and the weather was sunnyand hot and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. It was very serene. Hasan and I had a fantastic time together. A memory we will never forget.
