PPRS Monday Inspiration - Unreal Vacation

Happy Monday!  Have you taken a summer vacation this year?  We did.......sort was a staycation and it was BUSY.  Although I enjoyed it I can't say that it was very exciting so it was fun to play along with the VSN challenge  Christine had for us:  "create a card to reflect the craziest, most amazing summer vacation you have never had... yet!"  So my thoughts went right to this fun Prickley Pear Rubber Stamp image: Steampunk Drifter 

This is my crazy, most amazing summer vacation story:  On a hot summer, blue sky day (It's my fantasy-- NO humidity!)  a Steampunk airship drifted low over our property with rope ladder dragging.  That was all the invitation I needed! With a quick wave to my family and an affirmative nod of my head to the question of whether I had my cell phone,(I am always driving off without my cell phone so the last question I hear as I step out my door is, "Do you have your cell phone?")   I was off! 
We drifted for a full week over the land of all things artsy.  Steampunk gears and gadgets, Watercolors, Inks, Paints, gessos, pencils and markers in every shade imaginable.  Papers, Oh my, the papers!  We paused and we played with all the mediums in this artsy land, needing very little refreshment from sleep or food.  Why, I came home weighing 15 lbs less!! 

That's my vacation story and I am sticking to it!  :)

To help create my fantasy I used : Prickley Pear  Steampunk DrifterCLR025 Steampunk Gears, and PPRS-D025 Steampunk Gears Die

TFL!  I hope you have a fantastical Summer Vacation!
