Blast from the Past Blog Hop

Welcome to the first ever Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past blog hop. If you're just stumbling onto this post and want to start at the beginning, then you'll want to head over to Taylor's blog.

I have a couple of TE sets and had a hard time deciding which to use, but I finally settled on The Places You'll Go. I have a soft spot for Dr. Seuss and many of the other books and quotes in this set.
I used the sketch that we were provided and colored up my boat and scene. I figure that I'll give this card to my son as his end of year "Congratulations you made it through the school year" card. To me, both kids at home all summer = wild rumpus!
I paired the image with some K&Co. Carolyn Gavin paper and embossed the lower portion. I threw in some sewing, twill, ribbon, and brads and called it done! Hope you're enjoying hopping along and thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps: Taylored Expressions The Places You'll Go
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, copics
Paper: MFT Perfect Panel, Riding Hood Red, Baja Blue, K&Co. Carolyn Gavin Greenhouse dsp
Accessories: Nesties, Sewing machine, Ribbon, Twill, Brads, Embossing folder
