The Violin Man~

Hello girls,

Wanted to share a Scrapbook Layout with you today.

These two photographs were taken when I visited Amsterdam with my hubby and friends in August 2007 (the last time I flew actually!).

I have got to say that the photographs don't do this sculpture Justice, I wish now I had taken a picture of me or someone else standing next to it.
You cannot tell but, this sculpture was huge, about 3 metre's across, and it was breaking out of the floor like it was in the room below....Incredible, I remember thinking it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.

What really surprised me about this piece was the fact that it was in the lobby of a building which was just a boring old exchange business suite, and there were no people to be seen (accept us, that is!)
I was so sad to think that it was hidden away like that, this could have been in the street somewhere where lots of people could see it.
I don't remember seeing a plaque telling me anything about the piece and I don't have a name....So I just call him The Violin Man.
I hope you like him as much as I do.

I have used Graphic 45 paper, and my New papers from "Stampin Up"...OOoo they are gorgeous! This lovely flower is a Funstamp by Lindsay Mason called Dotty Flower and I just love using this flower on a Scrapbook page, it's so nice and chunky and perfect to stamp on your favorite papers and cut out, had lots of use out of this one!
I have followed the sketch set at the gorgeous NEW Scrapbook Challenge blog over at Sketchbook 365, go take a look it's lovely.

It's so cool that you saw this sculpture, and have documented it and shared it here, so now lots of people are getting to see the sculpture even if it is hidden away somewhere!

Your page looks great, I love the colours you've used to go with the photos. x
