Traveler's Inspiration Challenge #3

Hey everyone! I wanted to share a layout that I made for the Traveler's Inspiration Challenge from Tina's blog. I can't tell you, how much this challenge has inspired me. (I guess that's the point, right?!) This week the picture comes from Amy at Tethered 2 Home . The life jacket just reminded me of our vacation last year to Destin, Florida. My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary and renewed our vows on the beach. It was also my husbands 30th birthday, so we all went Parasailing. I am a little freaked out about heights, so I had some sleepless night for about a month before! :) I needed to overcome that fear, so I decided to do it too. My husband had to go with me and then he went with the kids too. I was a wimp and only let them bring me 600 ft. in the air, but everyone else went 800 ft. At least I did it though, right?! You can tell by the picture, I was a little worried, look at my fingers crossed! This is where the title came from! :) My in-laws went on the trip too, and they bought a photo album with "Destin, Florida" on the front of it, for our anniversary. So I decided to start filling up the pages with our trip. I used lots of stitching again (surprised?), some of them remind me of waves! I hope to share more pages of this vacation, in the near future! Thanks for the inspiration Tina & Amy. Here's the inspiration picture!
Here's my page!
Here's a close up of the stitching (waves)!
Supplies:

Paper- My Mind's Eye, scraps from my stash
Accessories: white thread from sewing machine, black marker, Cricut for title

Have a Blessed night!
