Japanese Pagoda Tree: Epcot 2009

I found a new challenge blog last week called Design Dollies and when I saw their sketch I just knew I had to make a layout using it. I thought about this all weekend and never really new which pictures I would scrap next and then Fantabulous Cricut put their new Monday challenge up and my layout came together.
Challenge #28
In My Garden Harvest Time:
Create a project having to do with gardening (plants, gardening tools, vegetables, etc.)
Last Mother day, we were having another snow storm in Alberta, when hubby said, lets get the heck out of here. So off we went to Florida for two wonderful weeks. The first week was filled with so many things to do.

These pictures were taken at Epcot, where you have the chance to experience other cultures by visiting one of the areas themed around countries.

These pictures are the entrance into China, where you can eat Chinese food, listen to their music and watch the Chinese acrobatics. The pond was beautiful, just filled with Koi.

I used my Pagoda Cricut cartridge for most of the cuts. The bridge was cut at 3.50 inches. I ran it through my Cuttlebug and then took sand paper to it to make it look like wood.

I then added a couple of birds and the Yin and Yan Symbol.

I cut the Japanese Pagoda Tree at 5.50 inches.

My final cuts were the beautiful Cherry Blossom's which in Japan they say, mean spring. Which of course it was not in Canada!

This is the Sketch I followed for the challenge over at Design Dollies
