These are photos from the Japanese Friendship Garden in Balboa Park down in Sandy Eggo (what it sounds like to me). I was inspired in the creation of this layout by the Barbie challenge at Child's Play -- I used Pink! (not used much here, since my most frequent subject are the guys) and the little umbrella reminds me of all the Barbie furniture and stuff we used to scavenge to play Barbies with. :-)
I was also inspired by the "Name that Tune" challenge that I'm hosting over at S-P: the song "Kodachrome" is the inspiration song -- my journaling strips have lyrics "You give us the nice, bright colors, You give us the greens of summer, You make us think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah, I love to take photographs..."
I used the front and back of the paper -- I loved both. Absolutely adore the tea set. I couldn't find a lantern svg, so printed off, colored and fussy cut the clip art. The title, is of course, the Japanese character and English translation "Beauty". This was such a lovely, peaceful spot.
