Postcard #52 - Mexico

The last week of challenge finds us in Mexico.  I checked out my books and found a great costume for the region and went with it.  Paper pieced, title and inking.

Dear Darcy:
We wanted to thank you for the wonderful places our families have been able to
visit and learn about due to your challenge.  We were college room-mates, had
successful  careers and wonderful families.  Hope you enjoyed our journey from
January 3, 1985 to December 28, 2012.
THANK YOU    Ann and Zoey

Sad for the journey to end but I am so excited that I actually completed the full challenge.
While it was not always been easy, it is the idea that I started it and wanted to finish it.  It has made me realize that I am really a scrapbooker and not an artist.  I love doing new techniques but I love
paper and glue.  It has been interesting learn facts about these countries.  There are a few I would love to see myself and not through the eyes of my characters.

Here is a picture of my completed 2012 Postcard  Challenge Book, it is absolutely full. I could have used a few more pockets.

THANK YOU DARCY...........fabulous challenge.  I am ready for the book challenge.
