Florence layout

The journaling reads: "1- The Duomo 2-Scooters galore! 3-Us 4- Chain of locks hanging on Ponte Vecchio Bridge. Tradition dictates that a man may show his unending love and devotion for his special someone by locking the lock and throwing the key into the river! 5- Chianti wines 6- Jennie riding "Why Worry?!" (How appropriate!) 7- View of Florence from Chianti region (during a mostly uphill 15-mile bike ride)."

As you can see, the title florence is spelled out with American Crafts Thickers. I wanted the journaling brackets to match, but I'd already used them on the Switzerland layout. Not wanting to shell out five more dollars on an additional package of Thickers, I decided instead to use two number ones as the brackets. Works for me!

You'd think by looking at this picture that our 15-mile bike ride was mainly over flat land, but that was so not the case! Remember...looks can sometimes be very deceiving! That smile, however, is completely genuine! I was so happy to be headed back down the hill toward Florence. As you've noticed, I labeled each picture with a number. These Martha Stewart number tags were on clearance at Michael's--each packet comes with numbers, months, and days of the week--and while they weren't exactly what I had in mind, they're close enough.

I placed a bookmark-sized tag in the pocket--on one side is a picture of David; on the other is white cardstock and journaling. You're not supposed to take pictures of the famed statue--but Brian being Brian--well, he couldn't resist. But seeing as David isn't wearing any clothing and this is a G-rated blog, only part of the tag is visible above. :-)

The journaling on the back of the picture reads: "David was much larger in person than I thought he would be. We thought it was going to take hours for us to get into the museum, but after only ten minutes, a tour guide offered us "group tickets" and we were in! The Prisoners were also interesting pieces. Michelangelo called them such because they were unfinished works held prisoner by the marble in which they were partially carved." (Click HERE to see pictures of the Prisoners.)
