Travel Adventures

  Good evening scrappers I just wanted to share a layout I did for the challenge over at Scrap Africa - Challenge no.33 - Travel Adventures. I decided to use my favorite picture from our last trip to Maine...we had stopped at a rest area ( haha there were many...its a really long drive 23 hours) and they had this cute little carved bear holding a welcome sign, if it had been just a bit smaller I would have hijacked it! LOL
I mixed and matched my papers, a couple different paper lines lets see there was Best creations Inc,Tim Holtz studio calico and pickle press (lol no clue where that one came from)... I was a little miffed because this layout took me way to long.... and I blame that on my daughter LOL she went away for the weekend and took the heat gun with her!! I think I will just have to break down and buy my own LOL

There is journaling on the back of this layout about the finer points of our road trip from Wisconsin to Maine!

 I thought I would mention that I am very thrilled with my homemade flowers hehe I love how flowers look on layouts but I never have any :( so I try really hard to make pretty ones!

One more thing to share.....for the challenge over at Beyond Grey- BGC#57 - Watercolors
I made a card and used water color pencils to color the flowers.

thank you so much for stopping by, I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!
