Vacation Theme ATCs

I joined another ATC swap on the Cricut message board.  This time, we had a vacation theme.

For the first group, I chose to do Egypt.  I had great fun riding a camel when I was at the Great Pyramids of Giza, so decided to use idea for my ATC.  I used sandpaper as a background. 

I had Paris for the second group.  I purchased the Destinations cartridge for this card, and cut the Eiffel Tower from Recollections Precious Metal cardstock.  I then embossed the tower with my Cuttlebug.  I found some wonderful French paper for the background.  I printed off a Paris stamp onto vellum, tore it, and embossed part of it.  I finished off the ATC with three red gems.

Then it was off to London!  I had originally planned an ATC with a map of the London underground as my theme.  I was not at all pleased with the results, so it was back to the drawing board.  I have to admit that I got the idea for Big Ben's hands somewhere else.  (I'd love to give credit, but I can no longer find the site.)  I designed the hands with Design Studio. 

For my final set, I went to Hollywood.  I remember a trip to Hollywood in my teens, and the most exciting part of my holiday was looking out for the stars.
