Colorful Creations Guest DT work + pics of New York

I had the pleasure of being a guest designer for Colorful Creations a few weeks ago.   I was given a beautiful sketch to use.  Here is the layout I created based on the sketch:

On a non-scrapbooking note, I just got back from a very fun filled trip to New York.  My mom, my girls and I went to visit my brother who just moved into his new place in Greenwich Village.  We hit a lot of the New York City tourist spots like Central Park, 5th Avenue, the Natural History Museum, Time Square, China Town, Little Italy, etc., and I took a lot of pictures. 

The first day we decided to take a double decker bus tour around Downtown Manhattan. It was a great way to take in the sights of the city.

All was well and good until it started raining.  Fortunately, our tour guide handed out these stylish little rain ponchos.  We all got quite a laugh out of it.  Here's Danielle and my mom:

They look like little ghosts, don't they?

This is me with my brother.  No, I'm not super short . . . he's just super tall.

We took a stroll through Central Park:
Some of the best views we saw of the city were from my brother's deck.

The city lights:

I took this picture with my cell phone and accidentally got a lot of camera shake. Cool effect, huh?

It was a great trip!!
