The countdown begins

You might see less of me in the next few weeks. I will have to coordinate packing for my family and there are 6 of us! Today is the start of our vacation countdown. In two weeks our family is traveling to Italy and Greece. We are flying into Venice and getting on a ship, the Emerald Princess for 12 days. This is a trip that I have been dreaming about for years, and it's finally here. My husband is part Greek and his side of the family is traveling with us. I think that it will be so wonderful for his father to be in Greece with his sons and his grandchildren. I don't have any Greek stamps so I used some images that are Italian in nature. I figured we're starting off in Italy, so it's keeping in my theme. The stamps are from RubberStamp Ave, and the sentiment is from Rubber Romance.
I just love the color combo of vanilla and black. And I am very happy with the way that this turned out. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
