Hi everyone, the family and I are enjoying a great vacation so far, but I couldn't go the whole week without posting a little bit from our trip, and how things are going on the ATC 3.6.5. Challenge on the road. On my last post I let you all know that for vacation week I was going to challenge myself further by taking a minimal amount of supplies and make my card per day with things I've found along the way. It has definitely been a challenge, but I've been keeping up with making my card per day. I'm going to show you the cards, but since most of the materials were collected along our travels, I think I'll just tell you about what we were doing that day.
We got into the hotel later in the evening and I made a card called "The Tall Ship" from a brochure on Charles Towne Landing, which is the site of the original settlement of Charleston and features a replica of an 18th century tall ship you can view.
We got up Easter Sunday morning and headed over to Patriot's Point, home of the USS Yorktown. Upon arriving at the museum park, we boarded a boat and headed out into the middle of Charleston harbor, and visited Fort Sumter - the site where the Civil War started.

After a full day at Patriot's Point, we checked into our hotel in the historic district of downtown and I made my card (4/4) "The Charm of Charleston" was made from brochures for the nearby plantations.
Later that night we went on a ghost tour which took us into a graveyard. Here's some photos
Monday, 4/5 we got up and went to the Charleston Museum, here are some photos
After the museum we did a lot more walking, going to the Four Corners of Justice, the Provost Dungeon, Washington Square park and the City Market.
My card from 4/5 was called "Lady in Red" and was made using a childs fashion design plate system that they had for the kids to play with at the Childrens Museum
That's all I have for now but I will be adding more soon from the rest of our trip. Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.
