Counterfeit kit -up the spanish steps

Up is one of the requirements in a challenge on Counterfeit kits. Although I've done "Up" layouts  before I've created this specially tonight.
4 years ago we visited Rome. The day we went to the Spanish steps was very hot (around 39 degrees).My aim was to climb the steps, which we did together, but it was an effort in the heat.
At the top was a strategically places gelato van. We succumbed! A shocking photo of me but the only one I have.

I've used lots of layering, including a map paper and a small scrap saying Italia. There are chevrons pointing the way up the steps as well as 2 small inked arrows on UP. I couldn't resist the ice cream and birds from October afternoon.
