Vroom, Vroom! It's the 15th of the month and the duel for the Darlings has 'taken off'! This month, the hostess for the Divas is the fantastic, sweet Carol and she sent us a kit that is over the top fun! And even more exciting, we have a brand new member in the Dueling Darlings ~ Kadie!! We're so excited to have you "on board" - hee hee! :)
Here is a little bit about Carol and Deb's traveling theme for this month:
Here is a bit of information about the month of November…
November is Aviation History Month and National Model Railroad Month.
Also, November 22 is Go for a Ride Day!
Well, with those things in mind, a theme of: Planes, Trains & Automobiles was mentioned. Then Carol asked me if I had ever seen the movie Planes, Trains & Automobiles? (I have not.) But she explained that the characters of the movie are trying to get home for Thanksgiving.
Well….duh… with those events taking place in November and the theme of the movie around Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving coming in November… it was decided that “Planes, Trains & Automobiles” would be our theme.
How fun is that!! That is one of my dh's ALL-TIME favorite movies and it makes us chuckle every year - how I miss John Candy and his humor/smile but grateful his movies live on for us to enjoy. I thought of my brother when creating my card, and pretty much made a collage with a little bit of everything ... and this kit had mucho!
My brother and I grew up as the unstoppable duo - as close as siblings could be. Being a military family, we traveled extensively and saw a lot of the world. After college graduation, my brother continued traveling and I got married :) He has seen 6 of the 7 continents, speaks and reads 6 different languages including Arabic and has led a life to be very proud of :*) So I had him in mind when creating this card and made it for him - and believe it or not, it's destination is currently Norway (being that's where he's at!)
|The very busy card :)|
|Look at all the dimension of this card!|
|And the inside, I used one of the journaling cards as the sentiment - perfect!|
Wow, did you make it this far?! :-) Well, we are still traveling through the blog post! There's more to this flight!
As a bonus please tell of a Thanksgiving memory or a memorable trip to get to your Holiday destination...
My dh and I have traveled quite a bit since we've been married, too - and even took the kids on not one but TWO whirlwind trips around Europe in the last 7 years, including to cities we didn't speak the languages and both of us speak several between the two of us! To say it was like watching Chevy Chase's National Lampoons Christmas would be an understatement, LOL!
But best of all, the most memorable trip BY FAR was last year's Christmas trip to the Mountains of Tennesse. We are all still nostalgic every time we talk about it, see pictures and just dream of a day we will return. We rented a GORGEOUS two story log cabin in off the beaten path so the kids could see some snow and just get away from the hustle and bustle of 'life'. It was a warm winter, but we did see snow for two of those days! Each day we were there, we all felt like we were in a mountain paradise and I am sure that when I get to the other side of heaven, it will look a lot like this place did :)
And that's my journey today!!
I hope you book a ticket on over at my mates blogs - right over there on the sidebar you can find them and see what they created :)
Thanks for stopping by!
