Watercolor Wonder Still Comes in Handy

Adventure Awaits

All things Stampin’ Up have been pretty hectic this week, wouldn’t you say? Wow, I sure wish I could have attended convention this week! It looks like there was lots to do and see. The Pals who attended made sure that those of us who couldn’t attend felt included. Mary Fish had a contest called “Home is Where the Heart is” for us to post cards we made this week, and many Pals were so awesome to post photos as they were happening. Almost as good as being there! LOL The Holiday Mini Catalog, which isn’t that mini this year, was unveiled and those who attended were even allowed to purchase items. Lucky!! But that’s OK, the rest of us can order right around the corner, so I am just going to be patient and start my planning. So many wonderful products are coming!

Anyway, back to my project… The Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew challenge was “make a Scrapbook, Displayed Art, This & That Journal, and More, using the provided sketch.” Well, I still had our fantastic trip to Turkey on my mind so I used the sketch to highlight the best part of our trip – the hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia at sunrise. What an incredible experience!
