Boxing Day Road Trip


This week at MDS Monday Heidi has a great sketch for us...I've changed it up a bit so I could include the three photos that I took in the van, sitting behind Elliot on our way to Airdrie on Boxing Day.  This week Heidi also is challenging us to crop an embellishment.  To help you with this part of the challenge this round, you can view THIS video, by Stampin'Up!, on cropping embellishments on MDS.

For the challenge, I took the road sign from the "Travel Log" embellishments and cropped out only the "Road Trip" portion.  When I cropped the sign, I couldn't completely eliminate the post  - so I added a tiny square punch at the top and bottom of the sign, to cover the exposed post, and filled it with colour to match the background. 
 I also cropped the Baker's Twine bow so that it wasn't quite so long.
The text in the suitcase is on a punch that then covers the words that are actually on that embellishment.

Here is Heidi's sketch
and here are some guidelines to keep things fun and fair for everyone.
  1. In your blog post you must mention that you are playing along with MDS Monday - we'd love it if you went one step further and linked back to the challenge blog and posted our challenge photo!
  2. Your project must be new and not posted prior to the MDS Monday challenge date.
  3. Enter as many times as you like!
  4. When linking your entry, please link directly to your blog post, not your entire blog. 
  5. Entries must be in by 11:59pm EST the following Friday (that means you have 12 full days to enter!)
  6. Have fun!
I hope you have fun with this - don't forget to check out what the rest of the Design Team has come up with on the MDS Monday Challenge Blog, there's even an example of creating a double layout with this sketch!

Hope the beginning of your week is wonderful
Joan

This is oh-so-cute! I love the journaling on the suitcase, and the little cars putting along the bottom. Wonderful page :)
