Welcome to the final post of the August CKCB Members' Blog Hop; if you didn't reach me from Salla then you might want to start at the beginning with Lisa (the full hop list is here). We had a choice of three challenges to use for the hop (#1 Happy Sandcastle Day, #2 Outside The Stash, #3 Sounds Foreign To Me) or indeed, anything made from this month's kit.
Using my August Counterfeit Kit, I used Italian to title my double page spread about a surprise tour of an Italian castle!:
The blues and browns of the kit were the perfect mix for both interior and exterior shots of the Catello di Torre Alfina. We've visited this quirky town many times over the years - it has an excellent Gelateria! The castle, however, has always been a mystery. Never open to the public. Until this time!
People then started gathering around a staff member, but we still had no idea what was going on and hoped we wouldn't get chucked out. However, another member of staff worked out that we were "foreign" and we ended up having a private tour for two of the newly-opened-for-occasional-tours castle!
We were so happy that we'd been cheeky and walked through the green door ... it was a fabulous experience.
I hope you enjoyed the CKCB Members' Hop this month - why not join with a page next time?
