Who doesn't love a vacation with the girls! 
Every year for the past 25 years, my girlfriends and I have done a trip together...all 10 of us! CRAZY FUN, right?!! 
"Trips Ahoy"! AI Challenge 126 is to create something with a nautical, or travel theme. 
The "Picture Perfect" image from Art Impressions is sooooo us! 

I wanted the arm holding the camera to be raised and on the outside of the lifesaver. To achieve this, the out of box technique was used.

I love all of the Girlfriends stamps from AI. Their challenge is going on until 1/29...check out all the fun!

Thanks for looking!
