Vacation Inspired ~ Handmade Cards

This summer I had the privilege of vacationing in Europe with my husband for my birthday and our one year anniversary. We spent two and a half weeks visiting family in Romania and one AH-mazing week in Italy (Rome & Florence). On a side note: I absolutely LOVE Italia... I would love to move there for a year... it is incredibly romantic and rich in ancient history. 

I was your average tourist snapping away at EVERYTHING, and I am so glad that I didn't miss a shot! When I got home and went through my photos, I was blown away at how beautiful they turned out. I'm no expert at using my Canon Rebel EOS, but I'm learning slowly. I edited the photos via Picnik, a Picasa Web Albums software, and the pictures turned out so well that I decided to make handmade cards for friends and co-workers. They were so well received that I will be selling them soon on Etsy.com! I am so excited to share them with you...
