Go to your happy place!

Good Afternoon!  There is an "Anything Goes" challenge going on right now over at the Simon Says Stamp blog and guess who their sponser is...Paper Smooches!  You don't have to use Paper Smooches stamps, but since I just so happen to have a "few" I decided to play along.  For my card I used the stack of suitcases from Get Outta Town and stamped the little hamster from Party Posse on top.  I then stamped the camera image from Perpetual Bliss on shrinky dink paper and shrank it (I actually looked up the correct use of the word shrank/shrunk) down so it is now the perfect size for hammy.  The background paper is a beautiful piece from October Afternoon's Boarding Pass collection.  I actually like that  piece so much that it kinda hurt my feelings a little bit to cut it up! : )  The inside of the card says "go to your happy place". 
Here is a close up of the camera.  Last time I used my shrinky dink paper, I had several people say they had never heard of it.  Would anyone be intrested in a tutorial for the shrinky dinks?  Let me know what you think.  Thanks for stopping by today!

I remember Shrinky Dinks!!! That's soooo clever Emm! I think I might have some in a storage bin somewhere. LOVE that map paper . . . I would have a difficult time cutting it up too. CUTE card!!!

Oh how cute!! I LOVE that you used some Paper Smooches stamps. Great combination of the stamps and love the camera is made from Shrinky Dink paper. I actually have some of that kind of material myself. I think I may need to get it out and play.
Thanks so much for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.
