Tara is giving away one stamp set each day of the blog hop and Too Cute By Jessica is giving away a $25 gift certificate to her store.  Winners will be picked from a different blog each day so the more you comment the more chances you have to win!  I would love for you to become a follower of my blog too!

If you came from Debbie's blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you will want to start at the beginning with Tara.  Now on to my project, I created a double page 12x12 layout using The Great Outdoors stamp set:
The title was perfect for the first day of our adventure when everyone kept asking "are we there yet?" I added an extra layer of orange in the title to give it a pop of color.
A bit of Totally Kraft Trendy Twine was used to embellish the sign and title.
I found the perfect paper in my stash for my photo mats.  I love all of the fun word art on the photo mats.
Some torn paper was inked on the edges to create a dirt road for the car and camper.  I used vellum for the windows of the vehicles.
The road sign was stamped with a sentiment from The Great Outdoors stamp set.  A couple of brads were added to the sign to give it a rustic look.
The deer with the map was a perfect finishing touch for my layout.  It's rare that we see maps anymore but I could resist his cuteness.
Next on the line up is the amazing Georgiana.  Be sure to hop with us tomorrow too.  Stamps are available in the Craftin Desert Diva's shop now.  Please join us on Facebook at the Craftin Desert Diva's Gallery we would love for you to share your projects using the Craftin Desert Diva's stamps.
