Random Amusing Challenge #77

Hope everyone had a great weekend. We were visiting family up island (sorry - for those who don't live around here - Victoria is on the southern end of Vancouver Island and anywhere else on the island is 'up island') and had a great time.

This week's challenge is a theme near and dear to my heart - travel. Your challenge is to put something travel themed on your card or project. It could be a postcard, a sailboat, a famous landmark... the possibilities are endless. I love the new trend of vintage travel with postcards, maps, etc. so made one for this challenge. ETA - I have uploaded a new card which I am happier with (hopefully you are reading this later in the day and you are now looking at my better card, instead of my inferior card) (keep in mind, I have a hard time with vintage). In addition, here are some travel themed cards from Jill, Deb, Kerry and Kathy. If you play along, please leave a comment here and link back to here from your post. If you upload to an online gallery, use the keyword GRAC77. Thanks to Deb, Janice and Kerry for playing along last week.

Somewhere in the busyness of the last little while, I forgot that it was August and subsequently didn't post my calendar page. My apologies... but better late than never, right?

Hope you have a great week and hope you get a chance to play along with my challenge. Stay tuned, I'll have a better card (I hope) for it! Thanks for stopping by.
