Hello Friend...



I recently won an AMAZING prize box full of travel-themed crafty goodies from my blog friend, Glenda! The "Get Outta Town" stamp set from Paper Smooches was included in the stash, and I just HAD to ink it up right away!!!

I combined the color combo from the current SPARKS Challenge with the sketch from Retro Sketches 48... 




and here's what I came up with:


I can see this becoming a "go-to" layout for me! I'm really digging it!

Hope you're having a FABULOUS weekend! I'm tackling several cleaning/organizational projects that have been on my to-do list for far too long. Planning to sneak in some inky time later on tonight though *wink*!!!
