A New Destination for Inspiration!

Hello all!  I hope you've been enjoying the one-year birthday celebrations over at A Vintage Journey, as well as my simple card for the birthday, and that you have had a chance to check out some of the changes we've put in place for year two.

One of those changes is a new look to our Destination Inspiration posts, and I'm delighted to be the first to set off along the new path.  I'm over at A Vintage Journey today with a creation that follows the rules of our new game for Destination Inspiration.  Over the course of the month you'll see a team of Creative Guides come out to take a trip, one each Monday.  I hope this sneak peek will tempt you to hop across for today's first excursion.


If you're curious to know more about what we're up to, do hop over to A Vintage Journey and check out the map I followed to create the tag there.  I hope you'll enjoy visiting Destination Inspiration with us every Monday!

He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination.

One's destination is never a place, but rather a new way of looking at things.

This really is a very beautiful tag Alison, I am completely in love with the colours and the new die. I did wonder how you achieved the tones on Umbella Man and now I know - thank you! Anne xx

Hi Alison, I'm far from home for my work for one week, so I will probably not have time to catch-up with all the blogs and posts before a little time... please excuse-me if I miss something during that period.
Your tag is absolutely gorgeous!! Love this man and his umbrella, also the colours and the lovely layers of grasses and greens at the bottom... :) And this piece of die-cut is just delightful! Hugs xxx

Very cool tag. Love the balance that you achieved with the broken wood slats under umbrella man's feet and the kraft lattice die cut. Pinned!
