Vacation Day Blog Hop

Welcome to The Vacation Day Blog Hop!  I am so glad you are here.  You should have come from Jenny's blog but if you just happened by please start at the beginning of the hop with Nancy.

Nancy has asked us all to share what we love most about vacations.  I think the best part of vacationing is leaving your everyday life behind for awhile.  I love the time away from home, stress, work and schooling.  I also enjoy being somewhere new and exciting. 

I love this project.  I had soo much fun creating it.  The frame was a plain black and white that didn't really match my house so I decided to alter it.  The pictures are from our 2006 North Carolina vacation.  It was the most awesome vacation ever and I would love to back. 

 The frame measures 8 1/2 x 40 inches.  I distressed the background and liberally applied Glimmer Mist.  The lettering was all done in MTC.   I bought the leaves 5 years ago and never found a use for them until this project.   Funny thing is I bought them online from a lady in NC.  Kinda ironic....

Here are some close ups.

If you are not a follower of mine I would love it if you would consider following and please leave a comment.  I know Nancy has a give away going but you have to comment on each blog along the hop to be eligible.  You are now heading to the last stop on the hop Betty's blog.  Thanks for hopping along and I hope you enjoyed yourself!  :D

Here is the full line up just in case you get lost.  Have a great time!
