Hit the road!!

Wow, it's been a long time since I last posted!  Having family over from England for 3 weeks has meant no crafting at all and not much time for visiting blogs or doing DT stuff either :( 
I don't like being so absent from it all but I have been hitting the road a lot lately so this week's challenge at The Outlawz Friday group, which is "Vacation destination" seems very appropriate!

I have used a Saturated Canary image and the backing paper is a road map - I pick up all the freebie maps from service stations as I didn't think it would be a very good idea to cut up our proper road map!


The tag and "road trip" came from my scrapbooking stash - I'm so behind on scrapping now (must manage time better!!)


Why not head over to the The Outlawz and check out the rest of the DT's fantastic work?



For the month of July, we are being sponsored by the fabulous Megan Suarez whose DillyBeans images you will have seen several times on my blog - I love them!

I promise I will get back to visiting your lovely blogs very soon and I hope my mojo hasn't gone into complete hibernation!!

Dawn, Your card is adorable. I love the image. I have that one but haven't colored it yet. The layout of your card is out of this world.

Love this card, Dawn! The road map is a super background! And the sentiment is too funny! Great job on coloring the sweet SC image! Nothing's wrong with your mojo!
It's hard to have company for such a long time, even though you love seeing them! :^)
Hugs,

Oh this is fabulous Dawn! I love your genius idea of recycling that map. It makes the perfect background and of course you can't go wrong with a SC image. :-) Glad to have you back! Hugs!

Fabulous card, Dawn. I love everything about it, but especially the beautifully colored image and all the map elements. I LOVE maps and just read that since the advent of GPS devices, publishing runs have been seriously curtailed. I'll have to start hitting up service stations too!
