Paper Craft Crew 102

So where do I begin? Well, lets start with where I currently am, I’m in Austin, TX. I know you thought I was going to Salt Lake City, me too. Everything went rapidly downhill around 5:15 yesterday when I got the notification that my flight from New York to Salt Lake City had been cancelled. I immediately called JetBlue to see what I could do about rescheduling. Andrew called from his phone and I tried other things on mine. We were on hold for and hour before I got to speak to anyone. When I finally got through I was told that all flights for Wednesday and Thursday were full and they could refund my money for my outbound flight. Umm… nope! I asked to speak to a supervisor and explained that it was very important that I got to Salt Lake City the latest Wednesday afternoon. She tried about 20 different scenarios of me leaving from various cities and connecting through all different ones. We finally settled on NY to Austin, 6 hour layover, Austin to Long Beach, CA, 6 hour layover and finally Long Beach, CA to Salt Lake City arriving at 4:30PM. Yes, it’s the longest trip ever to get from NY to Salt Lake City but I will get there. I have had about an hour of sleep, if you notice any errors in my post let me know! LOL!

It’s Wednesday so that means I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch…

PCCCS102 7-16-2014

My card begins with a base of Basic Black Card Stock and the background consists of two sections. The one on the right is a piece of Crushed Curry Card Stock that I stamped with the Alphabet from the Tap Tap Tap Stamp Set in Crushed Curry. On the left is a piece of Flashback Designer Series Paper. The rest of the stamped images are also from the Tap Tap Tap Stamp Set. The notebook paper is stamped in Pool Party, the note flag is stamped in Real Red and for the typewriter I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black along with the greeting and colored it in using the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. I really like the vintage feel of the stamp set and I think it pairs quite nicely with the Flashback DSP. I hope you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Please take a minute to go over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done and enter your card in the gallery so we can see your take on the sketch. I’ll hopefully have a much better rest of my day today, only a few more hours and I’ll be In Salt Lake City!! Thanks for coming along on this journey! LOL! Have great day and may all of your travels be direct and quick! 🙂
