Travel

There's no place like home...
especially when you haven't been there in a while!  If I had my choice of traveling ANYwhere in the world today, I'd choose to visit San Francisco.
The base of the tag is an old airline "travel" poster showing one of the city's famous hills.  Over it, a torn image of a cable car near Beach Street, on my last visit there which was far too long ago...four years if I'm not mistaken.
To capture that sentiment, I used a vintage "past due" sticker as the header of the tag; under it, a bit of gold brocade; finally, at the bottom, a bit of two datebook pages: Friday and Saturday, with an Amy Tangerine stamp of an airplane, and the words, "TO DO".  Because a trip back home is definitely on my list!

  7. Very nice tag with so many interesting elements put together well! You have made this stay-home girl want to get in the car and drive to San Francisco - just 7 hrs away. (I've lived in So Cal for almost 16 years and have gone to Carmel and Monterey, but never to San Fran!!!)
