On the Road Again?

Today at the Hambo Hoedown, our challenge is all about MAPS! Create a project using any kind of map AND a Hambo image and receive the next image released at the Hoedown free! Read about the challenge rules here.
Today I used two rubber images from Hambo, Armadillo (4516) and On the Road (4508). I added some designer paper from Basic Grey for my map. I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored in with Copic markers. 

I loved this challenge because this summer I have been taking some road trips around my state. I have lived in Nebraska for over 20 years and there are so many towns I have never been to, and parts of the state that I haven't explored. So on my given travel days, I spin my little arrow on the map, and the direction it points is the way I go. No interstate travel - and I have to take a different way back than the one I took to get "there."

It's been pretty fun. Here is a picture of a typical scene close to my town. But I love what it represents: hard work by families farming.
I am looking forward to my trip this week. It will be a bit longer - my destination is 4 hours away, but I plan to enjoy being on the road again.

Check out what my Hambo teamies made for today's challenge:
