Artful Voyage

Wohoo, I'm so excited!! Next week I'll be going on on a week long scrapbook cuise, the Mexico Artful Voyage with Tim Holtz and Wendi Vecchi!!!! How fun is THAT!!! I'm so looking forward to their workshops! I'll be travelling with my sister. It is the first time that we will be going on a vacation together, just the two of us. Today she is flying from the Netherlands to Houston, and she'll be arriving late tonight. Then tomorrow we'll have a quite day, so she can adjust to the time difference and with only some minor preparations to do, like going to the hair dresser, checking if we packed the right clothes and of course the our scrappy stuff. LOL  On saturday we'll be flying to LA where we booked a pre-night stay in a hotel, where we will probably meet already a lot of the other artful voyagers. Then on sunday we can finally board "our" ship and the adventure can begin!!!

Some of our fellow voyagers organized an ATC swap. That sounds really fun, but there are 160 of us, so it is a huge undertaking! And I have never done ATC's before. And then some of the ladies posted some sneak peeks of their ATC's and that was so overwhelming, that it discouraged me to even try. But later I read that there were a lot of other ladies like me that never done ATC's, and I thought "why not make something simple", so I can at least participate in all the fun. So that is what I did. I made some really simple monogram cards which I painted, stamped and embellished. One of the cards I embellished a bit more and made it into a name tage with a necklace that I can wear during our trip. Below are some pictures of the front and back of the card with the necklace.

Thanks for taking a peek!! CU when I get back! xoxo Bonnie
