Open-Minded Crafting Challenge #15 – Vacation Related

It’s time for another Open-Minded Crafting Challenge with design team inspiration that will knock your socks off.  The challenge theme is anything vacation related.  This can be a staycation, which I personally love, or anything that you would like to do while relaxing and taking time off from the daily grind.  We have some great sponsors this challenge along with some really generous prizes.

Now, you ready for my vacation inspiration?  I use to LOVE swinging as a kid.  If I were honest, I’d admit that I still love swinging, especially the way it feels when you lean your head back and close your eyes.  WOOHOO what a thrill.  So, when I saw this Ike’s Art image of KT on a Swing, I had to take my copics to her.  Die cut tree and leaves from My Favorite Things and sentiment from Tim Holtz.  I hope you will stop by and show us your vacation related entries and win some of these fantastic prizes!
