my 2nd week entry for survivor

so over at tally scrapper the 2nd week posting was up and i wanted to get it done early since i will be heading up to my parents for a long weekend! i cant wait to see them and sean gets to spend time with his poppy!

so for week 2 we had to:
  • use the word Journey on your layout
  • use a chipboard alpha that has been painted and has different sizes
  • use NAKED chipboard embellishments
  • your layout must contain some pink

i used rub on stitching and you cant see it really well but in the scalloped circle it says not a destination. and i also cut the stars out. so i am pretty happy with how this turned out and its another 12x12!

i am also working on some more wall hangings to sell, i am hoping to find a craft show in november so it gives me some time to get lots done!
thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin!
