India - Here she comes!

One of my dearest friends is quite the jetsetter!  Over the last 6 weeks, she's been in Korea, the US, lives in Copenhagen and leaves tomorrow for India!  That doesn't include all the stops she makes in planes, which would get the country count up to 9.  When she was in the US at the end of  February we visited a few shops to pick up items like water purifiers, netting for beds, medications and clothing.  I was living vicariously through her as she prepared for this amazing trip....I did miss the cholera symptoms from the vaccinations, thank goodness.... 

This week's challenge at Our Creative Corner is a perfect homage to her trip, and since we're not going anywhere for Spring Break, I thought I'd let her trip inspire my creation for the challenge.  Here's the challenge:  Spring has sprung yet again! It's time to take that annual well deserved Spring Break vacation. Where would your postcard come from? Make whatever paper craft you like and show us your "spring break vacation destination". Remember to include the name of your destination somewhere on your project.

I have to admit, that I haven't been able to start the over-haul on my stampin' space yet....thus my outdoor photo....  My goal is to start this morning, but I had a 'pop' in my back yesterday so I'm not sure what I'll be doing later today....

I hope I was able to inspire you, please check out the other ladies creations and join us in our 'corner' of the blogosphere!

A cornucopia of elements that takes a different tack on the theme which to me is fabulous, the traveller in transit on her way to India, you did this so well Kristin.

I love the rugged retro feel you have achieved with this gem! The way you have clustered your elements together is such a great design and the stapled twill is fabulous - LOVE it! Terrific take on this week's challenge. Hope the back problem didn't keep you down all weekend.
