traveler’s inspiration challenge 5

This week’s Traveler’s Inspiration Challenge had me asking myself: “Do I really have to go to work? Really?” I don’t know how people who live by the ocean have full-time jobs. Clearly, they’re paragons of self-discipline. {stands in awe}

You don’t seriously expect me to go to school on a day like today?

My contribution to the challenge this week is based on the premise of play and escape from routine. With a fun chopped up quote from some patterned paper and a few cute hot air balloons traveling over the hills toward the ocean, this card totally reflects my state of mind today!

In fact, I feel so inspired that I’m going to do a series of balloon cards this week to celebrate summer. And what better way to lead up to the Ogden Valley Balloon Festival kick off on August 14? Okay, I’ll end a little early, but it’s the spirit of the thing that matters.

Thanks for this week’s inspiration photo, Claudia (aka. Clouds)! You’ve definitely inspired me to get away from it all . . . even if it’s just in my imagination.
