October Afternoon Travel Girl Blog hop!


Hey guys!  So glad you've stopped by today for the Travel Girl blog hop!  This is my first hop with the October Afternoon girls, and I'm as excited as can be :)

If you are following the hop you should have arrived from the talented Danni Reid's blog.

I just adore this collection, and even though I never really travel myself I have found so many fun ways to use the collection in other ways.  The colours are just stunning, I adore the green, blue and grey combo I used on this card, and the pop of red from the heart is the perfect tiny addition.


I added the world sticker with foam adhesive for a bit of dimension.  The "always" tab up top was the perfect colour for the card, but the saying didn't match so I covered it up with letter stickers, which are one of my fav' ever colour wise.  The green and blue are adorable together.

And of course we need a prize for a blog hop!  One lucky winner will walk away with a pack of Travel Girl Doo-dads!  I've always been a big fan of these, and one of my favourite cards ever was made with the library card from one :)  You have one week to comment below for your chance to win!




Next on the hop for you is my friend, the amazing Jill Sprott!

Hi, what a great web blog. I usually spend hours on the net reading blogs on various subjects. And, I really would like to praise you for writing such a fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and yes you got it. This is really informative and I will for sure refer my friends the same. Thanks.
