Paper Smooches Sparks - Trend Watch Challenge

Happy holiday Monday to my Canadian cohorts (well, to those of you who have one!).  Welcome to the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge for this week!  It's Trend Watch week and this time around the trend is travel.

Well, you know how much I love travel themed stuff... paper, stamps, embellishments.  So many pretty things.  However, I've gone a little tangential on this one due to the acquisition of the adorable new set, Space Cadet.  I love space stuff (cause I'm just a big science geek all around) so I decided that space travel would fit in to the Travelicious trend.  Do you agree?

I hope you like it.  The silver mist in the background is a bit hard to see in the photo but I though it would work well for stars.

Hope you can play along this week.  You have until next Sunday, August 12th, to play along.  All the details are on the Paper Smooches Sparks blog.  Can't wait to see what you come up with for what is probably my favourite Sparks challenge this far.  Be sure to check to see what the rest of the team has come up with!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a bold week!  We are having a run of hot weather here so I am LOVING it!  29 Celsius is the perfect temperature!  Oh, right... that's 84F for those of you on the 'other' scale.  Hee, hee... ;)  ETA - definitely have to add my excitement about the landing of Curiosity on Mars.... giddy....
