Vacation/Travel Project

Hello everyone. I know...I know... I found and lost my Mo-Jo all on the same day. Seriously, my DS was in Odyssey of the Mind and because of the closings for snow, they had to have some marathon rehearsals last week--some as long as three hours. His team presented on Saturday (all day affair) and was quite good. Then there were big Boy Scout doings. To say that I am bit tired is an understatement.

Through it all I did manage to get my Design Team project completed for CropChocolate.com. The theme was Vacation/Travel. I went through my stash and found these pictures from 2006. It is harder scrapping pages for showing since I try not to include anyone else who might have been with us. Not everyone wants their faces splashed out for the world to see. The same goes for my journaling. On the public pages I usually won't put it in plain site. Mostly I save it for the companion page or hide it behind a photo. Please note that I do record some memories of the event.

I submitted this page using the Basic Grey Lime Rickey collection and from Making Memories-Great Escape and Travel.

Papers used:

A few of the embellishments:

Views from a few other angles:
Here I used the highway sign but only inked the edges of the stamp so that I could write on the inside. The buttons are tied with hemp cording.
I used the Martha Stewart loops PATP, Spellbinders oval and beaded oval dies. The alphas are from the BG set. This was quick and I did not load all of the photos nor explanations that I wanted to. This will have to do it justice for now.

Please check back later tonight or tomorrow morning. I have not forsaken my giveaways, I think I have 3-4 more. Pictures are taken and I just need to get them posted.

As always thanks for stopping by and keep inking, in the name of love.
Until then.
