Bright and Cheerful MOO-MANIA and MORE meets my 7 Continent AB

This fortnight MOO-MANIA and MORE's theme is "Bright and Cheerful."  This is the first chance I've had to create something for this latest challenge, so I went to my 7 Continents altered book.  For those of you unfamiliar with it, I started it back in 2005 when I hosted a tip-in swap.  I've added pages as the spirits and time permitted, and I thought now would be a great time to create an entry.  What could be more bright and cheerful than Argentina?  Today we'll visit Buenos Aires again, a city in Argentina, which is in South America.  If you are as geographically challenged as I, you appreciate the reminder of where we're headed.

But first, I wanted to show that I corrected (by hand) an entry I made while we were in  Buenos Aires the first time.  I show it partly because of the correction

and partly because it is the front of this decidedly different page that follows.

This colorful, cheerful, and bright La Boca district is where the Tango,

a dance native to Buenos Aires, was born.

All images from this spread were taken from various travel magazines and the background was made using my handmade shimmering mists, some through a found object stencil.

Don't forget to visit MOO-MANIA and MORE for more links to bright and cheerful mixed media.

Awwwwh! The Tango, such a sexy dance.
Beautiful pages and great pictures. It would be interesting to visit Buenos Aires and maybe even learn the Tango!! (grin)

This is gorgeous Elizabeth! I love your composition, and I really would love to live in that building! I'm so glad my little envelope arrived and you liked everything! I've still got tons of bowler hats left - I hope you can use them for something fun!

A city of emotion, dancing, romance, and color--all captured on your beautiful page!

Yes, I'm sure the APC would go in those sleeves which is probably the easiest solution.
