Bon Voyage

Hi everyone!!

Well...we've definitely had a change in the weather and sorry to be typically English's too darn hot!!! My regular followers know that when it comes to this weather...I just melt when it gets to these temperatures, and London is definitely very HOT today!! The best part of the day though...evening, a cool breeze and a beautiful sunset...perfect!!!

Anyway, I hope you're all having a fabulous week, and I hope you're enjoying the sunshine! Today, is a new challenge over at Sarah Hurley and this challenge is all about....

We'd love to see your creative pieces and if you need any inspiration, the DT have come up with some fabulous ideas...and here's mine, I hope you like it!!!

I chose to make a little Bon Voyage suitcase, ready for a new beginning...maybe somewhere exciting, where you start new dreams and new adventures!! The papers are all from Sarah's Britannia CD and of course, the die cuts are Tim Holtz's Vintage Valise, Branch and Leaf and Tattered Florals Alterations Sizzix Dies. I added some computer generated text and some twine.

So, that's about it from me for's been a slightly hectic week of crafting, one that I wasn't expecting and one that will continue for the next few days...wish me luck because I have deadlines looming and as card projects!!! Eek.... lol!!

Thank you for all your comments on my last always, I appreciate each and every one of them!!
I'll be visiting all your blogs later tonight...see you then and have a lovely evening!!
Take Emma xxx


  1. ...clean & fresh, the simplicity allows those uber gorgeous flowers with their polka dot petals to jump out and say hello whilst being flanked by their cool & crisp green leaves...loVe the texture on the strapping too...fabby work Emma...Mel :)

  2. I'm loving the dotty roses, fab, and blue too. Love your little property tag, such fun. The whole thing is superb actually! Zo xx

  4. Fantastic make Emma!! Love the whole idea and those dotty roses are just gorgeous!

  5. I am with you re the heat - I hate it too! It has gone from freezing cold one day to tooooo hot the next - yuck! I don't mind seeing some sunshine - just not the hot!! Anyhow, your suitcase is great and the flowers are so pretty!

  6. That's a lovely suitcase Emma! I love those flowers! Its been really warm here today - but I love the heat! So I'm hoping for it lasting for a while yet!!

  7. Brilliant little suitcase - loving those spotty flowers.
    The heat wouldn't be so bad if we didn't have to work and carry on as normal but just sit back and enjoy it.
    I work in an air conditioned office and it was pretty cold in there today - sounds mad but I hardly change my winter and summer work wardrobes because of the air-con :(

  8. Love the little suitcase and the whole idea of it and yes those blue roses are fabulous!!

    Here in Scotland the temps are just perfect and I love it!!!

  9. Hi Emma
    I love that suitcase - what a great idea! The blue flowers really pop and I really like the textured strapping. Fab! Like you, I have also been melting the last three days and nights so can't wait for it to cool down again! x

  10. Love your cute little suitcase - so realistic! :)xx

  11. Adore the dotty roses, really great contrast to the rest. Really pretty. X

  12. wow...not seen this one from you..and what a great idea to make a luggage themed card! on it's own it would have been fabulous but the flowers really make it come to life...

    Amazing work! :D
