Smiles across the miles

Hello ladies!
Greetings from the 'top of the glove'!  Now many of you may be scratching your heads....unless you're from the midwest, then you totally get it....but I'm up in Petoskey Michigan visiting my DH's parents.

Since I knew I would be out of town this week, I did all my fun creating last week!  This is my favorite creation from my paper marathon, for this week's Our Creative Corner challenge and All Things Unity Summer Felling challenge. Spotting hot air balloons is my favorite summer activity with the girls when were on a road trip. 
Now, this is Sarah Gough's last week with us so be sure to send her some much deserved kudos for all her hard work at the OCC.

Super work, Kristin. I have to echo all of Wendy's comments. That striped paper is WONDERFUL and I love the way you have blended contemporary and vintage feel on this piece. Terrific job on this week's challenge. So glad you were able to share it with us!

Hope you are having a wonderful vacation!

Hugs,
Linda
