Take a Word Challenge #25 - TRAVEL

The image is a freebie from Ali Mayes (where are you Ali?).  The suitcase was Googled, the British passport is from Tangie Baxter and the background columns are from Createwings Designs.

  5. She's so elegant, as it is your piece. It reminds me of the long trips that wealthy British citizens used to do in the late 19th, early 20th century.

  7. Marie at her best, lovely vintage piece & colours!
    This could have been me some 39 years ago leaving the UK - without the hat of course, but I did have a case full of labels!! (not a tear in sight!)

  13. Love this piece, Marie! The sepia vintage look is beautiful as is your young girl about to explore the world. I think the suitcase with all the labels belonged to her godmother who passed it on to her.

    Your vintage and sepia tinted piece is my style and her longing look for the travel intrigues me !
    The stamp (of brush ??) on the background is also a great find Marie.
    A fantastic entry !

  17. Marie, I love the old times feeling of your piece! To think about how much more difficult and time consuming traveling was in those days makes me really appreciate all the brave tourists of that era.
