Celebrate the Occasion #15



                                                                                   

Hi everyone,

It's time for Celebrate the Occasion #15. We are to create a project that has to do with "Retirement" I know if it were my husband and I, we would be traveling. So I decided to  use the car from Nifty Fifties cart, it's cut at 2.34. The base paper of my card is from Recollections all other papers are from My Mind's Eye the Stella and Rose addition. I just love this paper, I won it off a challenge blog! I also added hemp and a button for a little extra pop. I  want to give Adrian from By Adrian 4 U her "Kudos" in helping me  to choose a sentiment!! ;) (Typed on computer)

I hope you have enjoyed my project, now it is time for you to create yours and link it to Celebrate the Occasion, make sure you invite a friend to join in on the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!
