♥ October Afternoon Travel Girl Blog Hop ♥

Hello and Welcome to the October Afternoon Travel Girl Blog Hop

The October Afternoon Travel Girl line is going to go down as an all-time favorite October Afternoon line for me.  I love, love the blues, greens, reds, grey, orange and yellow ALL together.  It makes this line so much more versatile than at first glance, a line perfect for my boys and perfect for my daughter who loves to wear red and orange.  (And YES, there's pink too, it has it all)  I love the "B" sides on all these pages and the "A" sides are perfect for those who want/need a travel-theme.


To show just how versatile this line is, I created a "baby sleeping" door hanger, "thanks coach" pillowbox and a card using the papers in this line, loooove this line.  I will also share a "sneak peek" of a card created with this line for my OA Blog Post tomorrow. (another color palette in addition to the ones below)

Shhhhh, baby(ies) sleeping door hanger



I think these "Do Not Disturb" Miscellany cards are going to go down as all-time faves of mine, the images are soooo cute and I can think of so many uses for them non-travel related

Aren't these birds the cutest?
 Not only are the cards fabulous, but the stickers and buttons having me swooning!






Next up is a pillowbox I created for one of our basketball coaches this year.  We intend to put some cash in there, he commuted to and from practice and gas money is always a necessity this day in age...smile

 Gas Money Pillowbox

 I cut the pillowbox using my Cameo file and large enough to hold some money for gas.  And
I thought it would be fun to have a little play on the theme of the line and since you can read "Paris" and "London"




And how about a card?


Hello card



 I loooove the Daily Flash alphas coming out too, I could forever create with this font!




And how about a sneak peek of a card that will be posted tomorrow with yet another color combo?

This card will post tomorrow on the OA Blog with the most recent sketch
