 Here's my project for this challenge....
If there was a time in my life where I needed a vacation, it would be Allergy season has not been nice to me. For my summer vacation I would love to go out sailing. I have never sailed before but I am always ready to try something new & fun.
I imagined my sailboat would be yellow & white with some Krazy For Kraft from Trendy Twine. I used the cartridge "When I was a Kid" for my label and the fun sentiment "Adventure Time" from CDD stamp set "Destination Fun". I stamped an anchor from the same stamp set on the bottom and made my rope from Krazy For Kraft from Trendy Twine.


I hope you will head over to Cut It Up and see what my fabulous DT sisters came up with for this challenge as well as entering the challenge yourself! 

We would love to see what you create!
