Create with TLC Blog Hop

Here it is the long awaited and anticipated blog hop from the one and only -

Blog Hop
Vintage Vacation

Paulette has given all the DT and us Guest Designers a freebie to play with and for you to have FREE, just click on the image below my card, right click and save as, it's a SUPER image such fun, don't you just love all those little images and links to the State?
The closest I've been, is knowing a wonderful West Virginian gentleman who is now 97, we have sent Christmas cards and occasional letters to one another each year for 30 years, after meeting him when we had a small hotel.

It wasn't until after thinking about what to do with this image I thought of all the things that would have sent me to Virginia, SO, if I had gone what would I have bought as a memento that would fit into my case and be enjoyed for a few, if not many years. (If I hadn't lit it LOL). This is what I would have bought. I coloured the image digitally and used the State colours of blue and gold. I hope I have done it and the State justice.
