Firecracker Designs by Pamela Blog Hop-Theme: Open Roads

We are celebrating Road Trips on Open Roads with a Blog Hop-and we are celebrating with guest designers from The Paper Temptress.  The Blog Hop runs Friday 6/18 at 8AM through 6/21 at 8PM.
My song for the Blog Hop is Rocky Mountain High by John Denver- we went on a huge road trip to Colorado when I was young- my family-7 kids in a station wagon- camped at the YMCA camp of the Rockies-best memories ever!!!
I made a scene with my Brayer using  Little Things, Just Breathe (trees) and Create a Scene (grasses). The sentiment uses Clearly Greetings- mix and match to make ANY sentiment!

Another great scenic card! I also love the song you picked!

You can never go wrong with a John Denver song!! We now stay in Colorado from June to October each year in a campground. We are in the Rockies and we do feel that Rocky Mountain high here. The deer just walk through the area right in front of our RV. It really can make you high in this altitude! Thank you so much for sharing such a sweet card and taking your time to do this for us.
