Fifty Nifty Sketch Challenge

Negative thirteen degrees tonight!   BRR!!  With all the frigid weather I decided to work on a layout with pics of our warm weather Florida vacation last year.  Just looking at them is encouraging!
This also fit perfectly with the current MDS Monday sketch challenge to use a map plus an arrow or chevrons.  (This is my first time participating in this challenge--thank you design team!!)
For my take on the layout I put things at wonky angles to reflect the idea of self expression.  Our family has a collection of strong individual personalities!   When I saw the Be Yourself digital kit I knew it would be perfect for our family with the tie-dye like papers and retro looking elements.  

One fun thing about this page that I had not tried before is attaching text to a punch shape.  See how the words fit nicely inside the state of Florida?  Super simple to do!   Holly Lindford from Stampin' Up has a nice video that shows how to do it.
