Travel…….Happy

Oh what an exciting post today!! As if the rest of the weeks events were not exciting……

Today, my birthday daughter decided to treat herself to a trip for her birthday. A BIG trip! So, of course in mom fashion, I have to document it with a card.

I pulled out the retired stamp set, Sentimental Journey and the DSP, I Am Me. I just happened to find a world map on one of the sheets. So cool! It got the gears to turning…..

But, I was still stumped on a layout……so, I checked my emails and found this sketch over Create with Connie and Mary. Although I think they are looking for fall type entries – it went just perfect for what I had in mind. See the CCMC323 sketch –

CCMC323Very, very appropriate for my focal point, I must say.

And here is what I came up with –

libbystamps, Sentimental Journey, I Am Me DSP, Starburst Framelits, 2 1/2 Circle Punch

Squeal! I love it. I got quite excited with the way it turned out. Happy, happy dance!

So, I don’t care if it’s not a fall themed card – I was inspired and that is the point of card challenges. Thanks!

I am very excited to hear about this latest adventure my daughter is going on. Such a traveler. She can scratch this off her ‘Bucket List’!! SAFE and HAPPY travels my dear!! And, lots of LOVE to you!!!

Happy Stampin’
