A "Mo" Birthday Card and Alaska Pics

I want to share one of the cards I scrambled to make before leaving on our cruise. This one is for my grandson who turned 14 while we were away on the cruise. I realize this image is a little boy, but I'm sure Zach is going to want to drive as soon as mom and dad will allow it, which won't be for a few years but will come soon enough. This is an image from Mo's Digital Pencil called "Zoom" and I really had fun coloring it. I used Cosmo Cricket's "Boyfriend" paper and chipboard key to match and my sentiment is computer-generated.
I also wanted to include a few pictures from our trip.
This first one was taken in the town of Ketchikan and we were privileged to see several bald eagles. The next picture is a scene in the town of Ketchikan, and the last one is the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau. I realize these pictures don't do justice to the incredibly beautiful scenery that we saw on our whole trip. I'll try to put a few up with each post for awhile. The view of the mountains in Skagway was breathtaking. I still have that feeling of the ship's gentle rocking - so relaxing! Thanks for stopping by and I hope your June is off to a great start.
