Off To Alaska!

We just received some GREAT news!  My son-in-law, Travis, has been out of work for some time, and it has been very tough.  He just got word that he was hired to go to Alaska for the summer!  He will be working at a fishing lodge as their head chef.  We are overjoyed!!!   I wanted to send him a special congrats card, and here is what I came up with!

I did a side step card and made the cut file for the chef.  I saw the cut file some time ago and wanted to down load it, but for the life of me I couldn't figure out where the link was to buy it!  So I kept the picture and made my own!  I also made the fishing rod, the menu board and fish.  The other embellies were stick on's.  But I did add the "Alaska" part of the sign.

For those of you who might be interested, here is a link to the 
Togiak River Lodge.
