Everything ABC's Blog Hop - Letter P

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop
for this hop, we will be featuring the letter "P".  This may be the name of a paper, stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their "P" element will be featured in their post.
If you came from Catherine's Blog, then you're on the right track.

This “P” is for Pennant  Banner for a very special Person, my first born granddaughter,  who leaves tomorrow for an adventure half way around the world.  She will be working as an Au Pair for a French family living on Reunion Island 500 miles East of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean.  This is the perfect experience for a "gap year" between high school and college.  The Pennant was constructed from the Paper Pack Wanderful (bulk). I also used the  I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut the letters for  "Bon Voyage" and the pennants.  I also used the new Artistry Cricut Cart. for some of the icons; camera, phone, and suitcase.  Othere icons were found on the Creative Memories Circut Cart. "Traveler"; globe, arrows, airplane, passport, sandels.   Since she's heading to a tropical island,  I found as many tropical island/travel icons that I could find.  Oh the Places she will go!  I was going to use some Picture my life cards on the back to send personal messages; Just ran out of time - the story of my life - time challenged. 

This is a short blog hop with 4 participants. It's been a busy summer!  Linda of Scrappy Therapy is the start of the hop and has the list for each participant. So if you started in the middle of the hop, she is your next stop. Be sure to leave comments. 
 I hope you enjoy the inspiration.
