The 2015 Jakaranda Home Christmas Light Festival

Let's Scrap Sketches challenge 12-15-15 is to use this sketch...

My youngest daughter, her husband, and their two kids and I visited the Jakaranda Liggiefees (Christmas Light Festival) last week, and wow these people have really pulled out all the stops this year. The children's home uses this as a fundraising event. They decorate 21 houses with millions of lights, and then open the venue to the public to walk around and enjoy themselves. The programme runs for the whole month of December, and includes popular local artists, orchestras, singers, and a laser show to entertain all the visitors.The kids always love it, especially when this granny buys those light-up wands - or swords as they call them!

I turned my layout a little differently to the sketch above so that I could fit the portrait photos in, and of course there is lots and LOTS of bling to represent the lights.

I am entering this layout into the current Let's Scrap Sketches challenge 12-15-15.
