Good morning, all. We are home from our almost month-long vacation - it is so good to be back! Thank you all for hanging with my few posts while I was away. We started with a visit to our sweet little grandchildren, and then went to some of the National Parks - Rocky Mountains, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, and on the way home, Mount Rushmore. We drove over 2 mountain passes that had me white-knuckled (1 of them while it was snowing!), but the views were breathtaking. I adore the mountains, the smell of pine, the clear rushing streams - we have a beautiful country!
As always, it takes me a week or so to get my mojo up and running, so in the meantime, I'll share a reject from the latest PaperCrafts magazine call that kind of showcases some of the beauty we saw on our travels.

This uses a Christmas stamp for the main image, but it also translates nicely for any season. Thanks so much for visiting!
