While on vacation this week we've invited a few of our friends to share their favorite layout of all time  +  why it is so special to them.

Say hello to Kelly Purkey.

where i'd been

When thinking about my favorite layout of all time, this is the first one that came to mind. I love this layout for so many reasons, starting with the fact that it puts a huge smile on my face. I am incredibly lucky to get to travel for work + fun and even more fortunate that I am able to spend time with wonderful friends on all around the world.

In 2010 I traveled throughout the country and it was documented on this layout. I made the page when I was on the Studio Calico design team and used one of the kits, including patterned paper I had designed for the kit. I have also blogged a tutorial on how I created the map and how you can create a custom map of your own.

It was such a good year for me and I am thankful to have a layout that wraps up so many things I love in life - family, friends, food, and travel adventures.

    I absolutely LOVE THIS!!! The highlight of my military career has been the opportunity to travel and go to places I might not have otherwise seen had it not been for my job. I will retire in a couple months and I LOVE the idea of scraplifting this to document the last 20 years and the highlights of where I've been. Great idea...Thank you!!!
