Are you up for a challenge??? Play along.....

Howdy friends!

I'm back with a fun quiz & photos. The challenge is to guess *where* we went on vacation!!!  If you've travelled there before, you will probably recognize the pictures and I know you enjoyed your visit as much we did!!!

The rules are simple.....you can only guess once!  If more then one person has guessed our vacation destination correctly, then my sweet little Mimi will draw a name from that group.  If you are a friend of mine and you know my vacation destination I kindly ask you not to play...thank you! In order to qualify please leave your name and e-mail address with your comment!!!

The winner will win a Flourishes Stamp Set of their choice, along with a $20 GIFT CERTIFICATE!!! Thank you in advance for joining in the fun and good luck!!!

Here is the clue.....this location started as a small Indian village and is now one of the Top 20 BEST  PERFORMING CITIES in the US!!! Any idea yet???






You have until Monday June 25th, 2012 to play. I will close the drawing at 6 PM EST and make the announcement the next day with my Flourishes post!!! 

Again, have fun and let's see if we have some traveling people out there...!!!


                                                              Hugs,  ~Silke~

Gorgeous pictures! And lI look forward every day to a new post. I am always inspired by your creativity. Where did you go? Looks like San Antonio, Texas to me. Beautiful city. i visited for the first time in January and loved the Riverwalk, the Alamo and the Market downtown. Terrific food. I know you enjoyed it. Blessings, Diane

San Antonio, TX. With the Wax Museum, the Alamo and the River Walk all within minutes of each other, the kids love to spend the weekend there.

The first time we went to San Antonio my John Wayne-Western-loving father was along. He was so excited to see the Alamo. We had to laugh, though, because it was right across the street from Woolworth's! Just an FYI, the pyramids are right across the street from shopping too!

Hi, I have visited San Antonio, Texas and stayed on the Riverwalk several itmes. It was my guess from the first photo. The architecture looks so quaint there. I LOVE it there and have recommended it to several of my friends. It is so beautiful and I have also shared photos from my previous trips on my blog.
