I love the design of Sharon's page . . . and love that Wendy chose it for the Saturday Scraplift this weekend. I need all of the inspiration I can gather to scrap the photos from our May travels! Thanks you both Sharon and Wendy for the fun! I used the rule of thirds on my layout . . . just not with a separate boxed partition for the top third. Hope that you too can see my thirds with the torn edge, the journaling and the large sun!

Journaling:Nestled between gargantuan snow-capped mountains, magnificent fjords and one of Europe-s largest glaciers, picturesque Bergen is an ancient city with deep Viking roots. Founded in 1070 on what was a Viking settlement, Bergen is the second-largest city in Norway; for many centuries, it was the country's capital and the Hanseatic League, a merchant powerhouse with ports throughout the Baltic. Perhaps its most iconic landmark ins the gathering of quaint, historic wooden buildings of the UNESCO-listed Bryggen wharf. Not to be missed are the treasures of the Hanseatic Museum or a stroll through the Torget Fish Market, where the fresh catch of the sea awaits . . . from cod and prawns to local caviar and icy oysters. This was our day off of the ship . . . a chilly 58-degrees and there were people sunbathing in parking lots! Actually, there were people outside on this beautiful sunny day everywhere we looked. I snapped this photo of some of Begen's beautiful wooden buildings as we wandered the streets.
