Default WT168 - Get Packing

Sooooooooooo........ who needs a vacation?! I do, I do!!! Sigh.....one doesn't look like it's in my immediate future.

With thoughts of summer vacation right around the corner, let's think about getting packing! Today's challenge is to find Ways to Get Packing. So how does that translate into a challenge? You can use packing/shipping products such as bubblewrap, shipping tags, packing tape (how about glitter window or packing tape transfer), even tissue paper. OR...spin the challenge the other way and use a travel theme such as luggage tags, vacation themed stamps etc. This challenge is wide-open for interpretation so have fun with it!

I was quite dismayed to totally run out of time to make a sample for this challenge. I REALLY wanted to play but catching up from a 2 week flu is really taking up my time. I do have some really great samples for you though! Enjoy!

WT168 Gallery Submissions

As always...please submit new designs for this challenge. There is no time limit and you may upload as many samples as you wish. Please put WT168 in your keywords section and post a link back here so that we can all see your work!

Now go get packin'!

What a great challenge. I can't afford to take a 'Real' Vacation since I'm putting two kids thru college, so I might as well take one in my 'Mind'.

Julia, I know there is no vacation for me only mini stamping vacations in my stamping area. I decided to take the packing route. I used bubble wrap to make the backgrounds for these two cards.

Yikes, I'll have to get my thinking cap on for that. I know I don't have any travel stamps really.
And we're just back from holidays so mentally I am all unpacked, LOL.
Don't overdo things, takes time to get over the 'flu so give yourself some TLC.

Thanks, Julia. Wish I was going somewhere warm and exciting. I think Southeast PA will be the closest I get.

Here's my submission. What a great idea for a challenge!
