Keep Calm & Travel On

TGIF, right?  Happy Friday friends!  One week down into March and 2 more weeks until Spring!!  Ohh I look so forward to it!  It's been such a brutal winter and I'm sick of being cooped up.

Now on to scrappy things!  I have for you today my DT layout for Challenge YOUrself.  The challenge for this month is to complete this motivational quote: "Keep Calm and _____"  You fill in the blank.  What drives you?  What keeps you going?  We've all got that something.  Oh, and one more thing, it can NOT be scrapbook related and don't forget to include YOU in the photo!  Ok, now go have fun with it and be creative!

Here is my take

That's right!  Travel On!  I just love to travel!  Whether it be by plane, train, automobile or boat - I dont care, just let me travel.  I'm not picky on how I get there ;)

For this layout I used two collections.  One being, Travel Girl by October Afternoon and the other, Urban Travel by Simple Stories.  I love being able to mix collections together and making them work.  And you just got to love the wooden travel shapes - car, plane and boat.  I didn't have a train.  For my pictures, I created a collage showing myself traveling by different means of transportation and stating that in the center.

Here are some close ups

I had so much fun creating this layout and now its your turn!  We all have that one thing that drives us!  Now its time to scrap it!  I cant wait to see what you come up with.   There are some goodies to be won so be sure to link up by April 5th!  For full details visit Challenge YOUself now.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope that you can join in with us this month.  Happy scrapping to you!
