In this layout, my sister and I traveled into New York City to see a live taping of the domestic goddess herself, Martha Stewart. We took a bus (as there isn't a direct train line out where I live) and arrived in the city without a hitch. The return trip was a different story. While we boarded the correct bus line, we did not board the correct bus as it did not make our particular stop on the westbound schedule. We didn't know that until we saw our exit flash before our eyes as the bus continued to barrel down the highway! The final destination was about 30 minutes west passed my home. Luckily, my husband came to rescue us.
I've been smitten with the Basic Grey Blog and used this sketch to get me going. I was drawn to the banner strips going up as they reminded me of skyscrapers and that Amy Tan wood city skyline piece was a must for this page. The goodies in my April kit worked well to pull off this urban vibe.
Note to Self: When boarding a bus, be sure to ask the driver if he makes your stop!
Live and learn!
