At first I did not know what to make and struggled with the challenge Took a while but then I knew....So here it comes......

Once upon a time and yes it was 1996...There was this girl who made a journey with the love of her America, the homeland of her loved one....

hehehe can you believe it that this is my (then) boyfriend hihihih and me.....deffinatly tourists eh?

On the 27th of June in the year 1996 we went to a Best Western Motel.....I saved the ticket from the Hotel and what a good idea it was....heheh....
I have used Forest Moss and Vintage Photo to Distress all the parts of the Tag, worked on the images with Distress inks and the Paper give it that Ephemera feel And I can tell you if you don't have a paper distresser YET don't wait any longer to purchase one cause it really makes your papers look reaaaaaaaaaaaaly vintagy...I love it.

Uphere on the roadmap Emerald Bay was a really special place for Mike and me.....cause on top of the waterfall with a Vista vieuw to Lake Tahoe, Mike asked me to marry him cool is that eh? And here we are now 13 years along our journey.

We went to the Yosemite National Park amongst a lot of other impressive sights......Yosemite is just fabulous.....wowzersss with all of the special big Redwood trees....offcourse I made a lot of pictures of the trees.

And here is my XL Tag when it is finished....I have used the EK Succes Punch on the side of the Tag and I have placed some roses and pearls.
And I thought I'll make another picture and that is this one....with the heart the looks of this one....
I hope you have an idea what you can do with the Ephemera Challenge for this week on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog, ladies and gents and dooooo join in....
And while your there check out my teamies AMAZING Ephemera Creations oke...
