Ticket to Ride

Good morning all. 
Yesterday was much more relaxed :) Picked up my wedding shoes and bag on route to my sister's and found the perfect corsage to put on my bag so my outfit is complete and now in the building!! I did end up sealing envelopes for my brother in law who was up to his eyes with entries for the Jim Clark Rally and needed to catch the post office before it closed though.

My feet and legs are killing me.....breaking in new walking shoes for next week, which are so comfy but as they correct the way you walk I'm using muscles I'm not used too! Also breaking in a pair of heels for Saturday....it's not easy tottering around when your leg muscles ache from top to bottom!! Anyway I'm off for a manicure and pedicure this afternoon and a little bit of waxing (ouch) and I'm having my hair done tomorrow morning..so hopefully I'll be all glammed up for the weekend!!

My third and final share for my guest design spot over at Sketches in Thyme this month. It's a double page layout this week so I just had to add another page to the Mongol Rally album.

Created in Craft Artist using "Ticket to Ride" from Mye de Leon.
Most of these photos were taken in Mongolia when crossing the Gobi Desert...tarmac roads just didn't exist!

Challenges entered:
Lasting Memories - alphabet
The Memory Nest - Whimsical Wednesday
