Our Travels -- for LESSology!! :)

Hi everyone!! :) 

We are live with our latest challenge over at LESSology and this time we want to see something involving your travels (while including an upcycled item!!) ...  Include elements that have to do with travel...maps. tickets, luggage etc. :)


I was so INSPIRED by Paige's magnet frame, I decided to make something similar for our family, since every time we travel, we try and pick a magnet to show where we've been! :) 

I had this old, seen better days, now rusted out pizza pan :) 




I spray painted it a brick color :) 



I also had this map from our trip to California/Las Vegas in July :) 




 And here is what I turned all the above into .... our very own magnet board for the magnets we collect through our travels!!! :) 





 I had some vintage milk caps that I glued all around the edges :) 








I cut the map into a large circle, used some distress ink to color it up and had some vintage Scrabble tiles that spells out my title :) 







Our sponsor this month is Kaisercraft!!! They have provided Mister Fox 12x12 paper pack! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
