Tulum Ruins- Lets Get Sketchy Week 3

Just a quick post to share another layout I did at the scrap booking retreat in Jasper last weekend. Once again I followed a sketch that can be found over at Lets Get Sketchy challenge blog and if you hurry you still have time to enter.
Above is the sketch I followed for week 3 at Lets Get Sketchy.
and here is my take of the sketch.
 
I had to laugh when I was making this layout because my daughter always says "Mom you never use colour in your layouts"
While honey you can't say that about this layout!
It is nothin but colour!
 
I had picked this paper up last year just after we got back from a vacation in Mexico. I loved the bright colours, the paper is called Fiesta by We R Memory.
The tags at the top of the layout were cut from Cricut cartridge Tag Bags and More and I added a couple of charms that I had laying around for years
The Mexico title and the ruins tag were cut from Cricut cartridge Destination. In the far corner I added another little charm of a donkey.
 I love the way this layout came out and it has brought back such great memories of a wonderful day visiting the Tulum Ruins-Mayan ruins in Quintana Roo, Mexico.
I will also be entering this in this months challenge over at Cards Galore Scrapbooking Challenge- the theme this month is "Autumn"( must include at least one picture) I think these colours are the perfect Autumn colours, I can just picture my trees in the backyard with all these beautiful colours (except for the turquoise blue LOL!) before the cold winter months hint Sunny Alberta!
As always thanks for stopping bye and have a great weekend.
