Take Flight

WOW!  Already one week down in November?!  Where has the rest of the year gone?  I can not believe how quickly the holiday season is moving in upon us!

With today being the 7th, that means we have a new challenge for you to tackle at Challenge YOUrself.  This month involves following a sketch and that's it... just remember to include YOU in the photo!

Here is my take.

Oh yes, this is me enjoying a yummy margarita flight from Margaritaville in Nashville, TN.  This was our first stop, actually, once arriving from our 7 hour road trip.  Ahhh, so well deserved ;)

For this layout I used my July Gossamer Blue scrapbook kit with a mixture of papers by American Crafts, Crate Paper and Studio Calico, along with coordinating chipboard by Teresa Collins and Thickers.  For my journaling, I got out my ebay auction gem, a 1960s Olympia Deluxe typewriter.  Oh I just love how quick and easy it is to roll in a sheet of paper/vellum and just type!  I topped off my page with a couple wooden accents and look at that little airplane paperclip.  How cute is that?!!

Here are a few close ups for you.

What do you think?  Have I inspired you in some way?  I sure hope so!  Check out Challenge YOUrself for some more inspiring layouts as well.  Be sure to link up by December 4 for your chance to win a great prize!

Thanks for much for stopping by and happy scrapping to you!

  1. This is so much fun, Tracy! I just love your title and journaling! And that photo is so wonderful. What a great and creative take on the sketch!

  2. Love how you made the sketch into your own! The vellum journalling strips and diamond shapes in the background are super creative!!
