Exploring Niagara Falls

 I'm finishing off layouts from my granddaughter trip to upstate NY in August to visit her Dads parents, here Meme' and Pepe'.    Because of Covid they drove this time instead of flying and  on their way there they made a stop on the US side of Niagara Falls.    It was a great break from all the driving plus there was a beautiful rainbow to see.

This is my layout for challenge #515 this month at  "LASTING MEMORIES"  

I used the colors blue and white per the challenge and also the element of water representing the Chinese New Year.

LM #515 - Wonders of the World - China

Happy Sunday! Welcome back to Lasting Memories! It is time for our third challenge of the month and we look forward to seeing your take on it!

As a reminder - our theme for September is - Wonders of the World - and we are celebrating different cultures each and every week.

This week we are headed to China. The Chinese are well known for their Feng Shui. So our challenge for this week is:

LM #515 - China - Create a layout that is balanced and using the colours of the Chinese calendar - White and Blue.

*The Chinese year of the White Metal Rat has a main element of Water and is the "yang" and represents the beginning of a new day. The Chinese year colour Blue is for Trust, Honesty, and Loyalty. It increases Immune Protection. It encourages us to open up with enthusiasm towards everything in life and make things wonderful around us, while at the same time helps us live in harmony.*
