For my project I created a 12x12 layout using the fabulous new Rustic Country Bundle.
I LOVE this set! The deep brown and red are gorgeous!! Reminds me of an old barn out in the country somewhere. LOL!
 
 
 I created this layout using Indie Chic Paper by My Mind's Eye. The colors were perfect for this ribbon! I also used my CTMH Artbooking cartridge for the design of this layout. It is designed to be an 8x8 but I enlarged it. I added some flowers, sequins, metal butterflies, and a stamped image on the paper clip. And it came together beautifully!

  I recently had the priveledge of visiting the beautiful country of Greece where my dad was born and my grandparents still live. 

I know that most of you would love to see photos of my amazing trip but I haven't developed the photos yet and am still looking for the perfect embellies. 

I did create the cover page for my album of my trip. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out!
 



I used recollections paper, card stock, cricut carts: Picturesque, Destinations and a postage stamp mat. The gold square sequins were actually purchased in Greece. The photo is my dad and I at the bottom of the Parthenon. 

I also created some pretty sample bags of Greek mountain tea I brought back to share with some of my friends. This herbal tea is know for its many healing benefits. My family has used it for years and I was super excited to bring it home with me. 



 

The font I used is Dionysis and was cut with my explore. The border was cut welding together a design from the Picturesque cartridge. And the gold cord is from 3 Girl Jam. 



Up next is the talented and crafty (my friend)
