Yep - the colors are the base of the kit - at least it is for me. If I don't like the colors I can't work with them well. So it's not bad to take 1-2 days on the palette

Beach, sun, sand, sea ..?
No! It's not for me.
I love mountain climbing! This year I was with the whole family in the Alps - it was wonderful!
Last year during the holidays I gave birth to a daughter ... this year my daughter was still too small for my dream vacation ....
She was with us in the Alps, she gained the mountains while sitting in a sling, she first steps give to the mountain tops ... It was a wonderful vacation!

But in my heart, guests longing for another vacation ... for something that I love immensely ... What is it?
These are the air show!!
I love Fighter Jets roar of engines and soaring acrobatics!
I love to visit with my family all air shows at all over Europe!
This year I watched longingly as my husband and our sons riding on an air show, and I stay at home with daughter.
But in the next year ... I'll be on all the shows!
I'll watch the soaring acrobatics and beautiful machine in flight and static display.
I'll be hear the roar of jet engines and bring home wonderful memories!

Here is my kit:

That is gorgeous Mamrotka! I can see the different opinions on "dream vacations". It can be so seasonal as well. You're going to get everyone off to a roaring start.

Love the air show kit, Mamrotka! My hubby is retired US Navy and we attended many air shows. You captured the feel of it perfectly. Thanks for sharing.

For those picking palettes .... I'm a quilter first and I have always picked from a photo .... mother nature knows best what goes with what in what light .... search a photo that appeals to you, it doesn't have to be about the subject in hand .... open it up in your software and start colour picking. It works for me every time.

Thank you for all the kind words!
I did not expect that my kit will call such nice words!
It's amazing that so many of us - women fascinated by aviation!
I am very happy - the more that you write, that we also love to ride on Air Show. It's exciting!


I look forward to another kits - I'm curious what is your dream vacation?

YES!
I love that feeling - jet breaking the sound barrier, the earth trembles beneath feet, my children screaming with joy, and I have goose-flesh.
YEAH!

Oh, I really hate to be a bubble burster... but...

in reading the Terms of use further, I see tucked in there:

(2) Unless otherwise restricted, you may only do so for your own personal and noncommercial use, or for fair use as defined in the United States copyright laws;
(3) Downloading Site Content for commercial use is prohibited;

That's as far as I went.

--------------

I don't think I will make this week either, my carpal tunnel issue is still flared up, so I am trying to rest it as much as possible. I had a great idea for a kit too. It was fun participating..hope to see you all around the digi world!

I didn't think I would have enough time finishing my other kits for my store in time to do this but I did it and I am shocked it only took me 2 days! So here is my kit.

Unlike Mamrotka, I have a huge fear of planes. So something overseas was out for a dream vacation. I have already lived in Germany for 3 1/2 years, and been to France so I fulfilled my European dreams. If my husband and I have enough time between weddings we will be moving to Southport NC this coming summer, if not we will be living there the following summer. I have always dreamed about moving back to NC. So I chose my future home as my dream vacation, because once I move there each day will seem like a vacation to me. I love the Ocean!
