Just A Scrappin' Challenge #19--Step It Up!

Thursday, August 30, 2012

Good morning fellow crafters and bloggers,

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my blog to see this week's Just A Scrappin' challenge. This week's challenge is near and dear to my heart. My father-in-law recently took us on a road trip to visit his family. We had a wonderful time in Rock Valley, IA. I loved the rolling, green hills and down home family charm of this town of 3500 residents.

And to make the town even sweeter, there was a little piece of scrapping heaven in Rock Valley that rivaled any scrapbooking store in a metropolitan city. When I walked into A Walk Down Memory Lane I was in awe! There was every type of scrappy goodness nestled right on Main Street. If you wanted October Afternoon--it was there. Little Yellow Bicycle--it was there. Carta Bella--you betcha! I flittered about touching all the pretty papers and embellishment before finally settling upon Little Yellow Bicycle's Escape collection and cute pearl stickpins from Maya Road.

I used the paper from Little Yellow Bicycle to create my card "Are We There Yet?" It was perfect since throughout our trip my little one (age 4) kept asking, "Are we there yet?" After several hours of driving it gets a little tiring, but my father-in-law always answered the question with a smile.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my card.
