Fly away

If blogger behaves itself and correctly posts this scheduled post, when you read this I will have flown away on my holiday..........
I will have jetted away to sunny climes. I took these photos last year on the plane on our way to Rhodes and never posted them...I really like them so I decided to share them today.
There is something rather special about the view from a plane isn't there.

I have packed these to read, holidays are the only time I get time to read fiction!

I have also pack a few crafting supplies so that I can work on a holiday journal whilst I am away.

So today's card challenge has to be holiday related. I made it just for fun for my Hb with distress inks and added a fun seahorse stamp by Red Lead which I then repeat stamped on grunge paper for extra depth. The little beach themed words I printed from my computer. The great bubble stamp is by Ryn. The shells are grunge paper which have been inked and crackled with crackle paste.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Now I can hear you all asking...where have we gone? Well this is a place we last visited just before I started blogging so I will tease you with a couple of  photos taken 5 years ago.......and let you guess.....this will be a similar view from our balcony..
and here is the local town we can walk down to...
any ideas??

Back soon,

Take care,

Bye for now,
