The Story of our Journey Together

Really enjoyed our trip to New York City last week. I am always energized and inspired by that location. I do miss it sometimes. Now  when I arrive back here, it is beginning to feel like home....but it is such a departure from this little house in lowcountry with acres of open land, palm trees and water. LOL. Speaking of New York, this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show the challenge is "Show us your pick... London, Paris or New York."

Today's card is a book template I created that has a removable book mark in the middle. Its a gift within a card. For the book, there are two types of  blue patterned paper as the background. I layered the tan paper with a stamped tiny map of the world. The route of our journey was added wit a heart at New York. Where I met my husband! A little biplane and clipper ship were stamped and fussy cut out too. A title on the spine..."Our journey" was stamped and layered. Some perfect pearls in copper, red Stickles, little red glitter hearts and a stamped border were added too. The book mark has "Togetherness" stamped, glittered and layered with a tiny stamped passport tied to the end.

Hope you will have a wonderful journey this week, no matter how close or far.
take care, gerri
