July Challenge at Filekutz - Free SVG

Its time for the July challenge with LisaJane at Filekutz.  Head on over to the Challenge Blog to take a look at this month's challenge and download this wonderful free svg cut file that LisaJane has generously allowed us to use for this challenge.

Here is a photo of the great flowery border that can be used in the challenge.  Its a great leaf boarder with multiple sizes of flowers that can be layered and embellished in anyway you choose.

This page set unfinished for about a year before I finally found the right embellishment to tie it all together with LisaJane's flower and leaf boarder.  It is amazing how one small piece of embellishment can help the eye travel through the layout and bind it all together.

Both pages together

HOT WHEELS - July 3, 2007 - Ancient Thira, Santorini island, Greece

We set off on the 4-wheeler for the ruins of Ancient Thira. We rode the 4-wheeler up a very steep road with about 20 switchbacks and were rewarded with spectacular views of the island
