Oh the Places You'll Go..........


It's that time of year - everyone seems to be on the move!  It's the season of graduations, weddings, retirements and vacations.  Welcome Neighbor DSP and Daffodil Delight set the background for my "moving" card. Button balloons with baskets made from a stamped squiggle from Playful Pieces and part of the cone from Sweet Scoops are soaring off to new adventures!  The sentiment from Asian Artistry is perfect framed in Melon Mambo.  I followed Margaret Moody's sketch at Pals Paper Arts this week but changed it up just a bit by having the card open differently as you can see here. 
As for me, I have graduated, married and retired so I guess all that's left is vacation!  I'm going to Graceland..........................
