Yesterday was a day that I won’t soon forget! LOL! After almost 24v hours of travel I finally arrived in Salt Lake City at 5:30 and my wonderful friend Wendy picked me up from the airport. How awesome to see a friendly face right away! I have to say that even though it was a long process it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. I met a very nice young man named Peter on the flight from NY to Austin and we chatted the entire flight. When we landed in Austin we got a cab and went to What a Burger to get some food. Went back to the airport and slept a little. He was on my flight to Long Beach too so it was great to have a friend to travel with. He headed off to LA from Long Beach but he said that he will come to NY one day and I’ll take him around and show him the town. Everything happens for a reason right?! Yes, it was a very long night/day but in the end it was all worth it! I have some pictures that I took from the plane to share with you…
These are the mountains that we flew over on the way into Long Beach…
And here is a shot of Long Beach on final approach…
This was my view when I was having Lunch…
Pretty neat huh?! I think that I will have to go back to Long Beach, it seemed like a very nice place to visit!
Now on to my card for today which is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…
Today’s card starts off with a base of Tangelo Twist Card Stock and the background is a piece of Pistachio Pudding that I embossed with the Tiny Triangles Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Next up is a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the “Vintage” Film Strip Stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black. The panel on top of that is a piece of Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper backed with a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe. I stamped the Snapshot Stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black on Smoky Slate Card Stock and backed it with a piece of Silver Foil Sheet that I cut out with the Starburst Framelits. My greeting is from the Hip Notes Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on a piece of Strawberry Slush that I cut out with the File Tab Edgelits. I am loving the funky colors in the Confetti Celebration DSP and the pop of silver behind the camera is fun.
