The Green Dragon

Here's yet another page from my Welsh scrapbook, this time I used photos of us on The Green Dragon roller coaster at Greenwood Park.  It's the world's first and only human powered roller coaster, it cleverly harnesses the weight of the passengers as energy to power it.
 I used Core'dinations in yellow and green along with Papermania Happy Days and Prima papers to pull out the colours in the photos.  The journaling card is from the Happy Days range too and the yellow letter stickers are also Papermania, from the Capsule Collection range in Lemon Sorbet.  The yellow flowers were made with Woodware punches with brad centres, the green ones are Papermania from the Chelsea Green Capsule Collection.  Some buttons, gold gems and two shades of green Card Candi finish my page.

I'm entering this layout in the following challenges -
Lasting Memories - #135 - Use Your Stash, this was made with all older stuff
The Squirrel and the Fox - #41 - Inspired by a Movie or Song, I was inspired by the song Life is a Rollercoaster by Ronan Keating (I actually hummed it while I made this!)
Simply Create Too - #35 - Use Your Stash, I used all older stash for this, see main post for details.
