Happy Travels!


"Leaving .. on a jet plane .." :) Remember that song!? Dont' you still just love to sing along to it! I have been a bit overwhelmed this past week knowing there is still so much to do before our trip and so many *small* details to remember, like connecting flights, car rentals, hotels - each one leading to the next destination! If one goes wrong, well .......... picture domino effect, lol. So far London is the only snag but for everywhere else, we are looking good ::: knock on wood & PTL! :::::
So .......... for the divine Sweet P at the SCS - aka, Miss Paola - is hosting a "what is your favorite past-time?" swap. I inked up my Flopsey MFTs and had a blast for another swap, then started to ink up another Flopsey for this one (reading) and thought "hmmm, I have a travel one in here somewhere!" And there it was - almost as if on cue with dh's Mother's Day surprise! One thing he and I loved to do so very much before the kids were born was travel - just get in the car and go or plan a fun trip. I traveled extensively as a young girl and my family was always jetting around somewhere (dad's AF Job) but taking side trips all the time "just to explore the world" and hence, the foundation for a love of travel was born. I realize how very, VERY blessed I am to have seen all that I have, and my "to do/to see" list still has a few places not checked off :)
This was attempt #2 at this card - not award winning, but at least this one fell into place!
Deets: PTI cardstock, DCWV mat stack, Doodlebug paper ric-rac, ink & lots coloring :)
Happy Travels!

  5. It fell into place very nicely, I'd say! I've admired this set for a long time, and you've put it to very good use here. Great choices, my friend! I can only imagine your excitement about your trip. I'm so happy for you, and hoping someday I make a similar trip. Great card, sweets!!

  6. This is so cute! Great layout! I'm going to miss you when you begin your world travels! Maybe we can coordinate to do a "Where in the World is Kelly?" game! It might help for all of us who will be suffering for Kelly-withdrawal. *sigh* I'm starting to miss you already :( But I know you will have so much fun! And what a wonderful experience for the kiddos!
