Branson, Mo.????

Hello out there!
Once again, I'm with DH for a day or so, and have very limited resources. I found a challenge at Little Red Wagon that I could do with no problem! The challenge is to use a photo on our card/project. This photo is one that DD took of the Arch in St. Louis. Isn't it a wonderful photo? I could take a picture of the arch on a cloudy day, and that's what it would look like. She takes the same picture on the same day at the same time, and it's a work of art...go figure!
The sentiment is an old stamp from Stampabilities. I use it often! Had to use StazOn Ink on the glossy photo. CS is DCWV. That's all there was to it!!!
On to some personal business...
H E L L O out there.....
Are any of my blogging, scrapping, cardmaking friends from Branson, Mo.???
I've been traveling some with DH - he drives to Branson every single week for work. It's a 4.5+ hour drive, and I hate for him to do this week after week alone. So...I've volunteered (been drafted?) to come down with him a couple of times each month to help with driving, paperwork, driving, etc. Once I get here, I'm pretty much 'stuck' in a 5th wheel throughout the day while he works. I'd love to find a buddy who might come pick me up now and then to craft, shop, shop, craft, etc... let me know if you live nearby! When I'm here, our camper is parked at Holiday Hills Resort's campgrounds. I've heard there is a fabulous scrapbook store on the strip, but haven't been able to check it out!
Hope you are off to a great week!
I brought a few stamps and some CS and DP - I think I'll play tomorrow!
Hugs to all!

Great picture Patti! Absolutely love going to Branson but it's about a 5 hours drive and I hate the traffic there. Wish I lived closer to have a crafting buddy to shop with.. Enjoy your trip!

Oh what a beautiful picture Patti and your CAS layout is perfect for it
Glad I don't live anywhere near Branson .... I've a funny feeling that after a day in a scrapbook store with you I'd be bankrupt! Bwahaha! (though truthfully, I'd love to spend the day crafting and shopping with you!)

What a wonderful card. This is one of the most stunning photographs of the arch, with the lovely clouds in the background! What a creative work of art!

Oh what a wonderful photo. Mine would not have turned out like that either. She has a great eye! I wish I could join you in Branson. We have been there twice, to Silver Dollar City. My grandparents lived in Arkansas. We enjoyed it. It's was beautiful there. I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!
