CCCB week 27 ~ Rome, the Eternal City

Hi, it is my turn to host again, this week, I am taking you with me to The Eternal City, ROME!

The Eternal City has been around for over 3,000 years, no one can visit Rome and not be touched by her timeless beauty. Rome contains numerous ancient sites, including the Forum Romanum, Trajan's Market, the Pantheon, and the Colosseum, which is arguably one of Rome's most iconic archaeological sites, and is regarded as a wonder of the world. 

This week, I challenge you to make a card/layout/project that has a vintage feel to go along with this ancient city, next is a beautiful photo of The Colosseum, enjoy!

I have been scrapbooking since 1998 and card making since 2007. I love anything paper crafting related.... tools, paper, stamps.... its such a fantastic hobby/stress reliever!
