As family grows up and further apart geographically, we tend to travel to see one another, or even better yet, to travel together. As sisters, or siblings, or even with friends, we couldn't think of a better way to build memories than to be together. So we have tracked down something fun to encourage you to get out your suitcase and get together this summer. Welcome to
Today, we have a fan favorite
here to help get you in the mood for summer travel with their newest release, Panorama.
Panorama mixes influences from an eclectic and sweeping range of cultures. Deep, rich colors such as paprika, cumin, fig and saffron ooze Moroccan sophistication; many of the collection’s page backgrounds and designs could have been borrowed from the ceilings at the Taj Mahal, the Vatican, or St. Basil’s Cathedral in Red Square. Street sign-style adhesive stickers and die-cuts look as though they could have been lifted straight off of New Orleans’ Bourbon Street; and floral and architectural patterns offer a melting pot of flavors from Asia, France, Greece and of course, America. The finish on each design, whether on cardstock, luggage tags, stickers, or other embellishments, offer variety as well, with some in crisp, intentional patterns, and others looking as weathered as an old steamer trunk.
Look what two of our newest were able to create with this fun new line. Vivian made two great layouts
But she didn't stop there. No! Kelly kept right on going with an altered basket. How about that shredded paper for pizazz?
If you would like a chance to be considered for this getaway themed giveaway, please leave us a comment remembering a fun/outlandish/never-to-be-forgotten vacation memory. I'll get you started with a vacation memory which includes my sister (in honor of the Willis sisters):
When I was in junior high, our family purchased a camper trailer. (You know the kind that sits in the bed of the truck, plus a little overhang?) Well we hooked ours onto the maroon and white Silverado and off we went to the mountains in Montana.
It was a small camper with just one bed, in which my parents slept. I think my brother was relegated to the little hall/floor. My sister slept on the table that pushed down into a sleeping area. And I, being the smallest, got the upper bunk--the little cubby above the table. Just large enough for a very small-for-her-age child to crawl into. Not enough space to turn over (or breathe, really) but enough to sleep in if you held very still. I wasn't too good at confined spaces. Imagine. But I didn't complain. It was either there or share a space with my sister who thrashed about at night. And she had sharp thick toenails that could wound the sleeping innocent. (Sorry, sis. It was true.) So into the cubby I crawled. Me and my brown sleeping bag with cowboys on it. Cramped but safe.
