Ok - I know I'm not the only one who's traveled to St. Louis - and I'm looking at all the fun photos I took and would LOVE a kit to go with them!! (we did the arch, the zoo & the monster truck museum - to just name a few!)

Any takers?!?!

Oooh - this would be awesome! I have done a search for St. Louis kits, and I had no luck.

I know they have the old courthouse that held the Dred Scott case too.

We did the Gateway Arch, the St. Louis Zoo, City Museum, horse drawn carriage ride, and walked around the city. :)

No St. Louis for me :(, but adding a generic zoo or museum would be good for any "travel to city" kit :). I suppose you could throw the arch in, hehe...

Wait, better yet... have a collab and do several "national treasures" that people visit. The Arch, the Statue of Liberty, Mt Rushmore, Golden Gate Bridge, a museum, zoo, stadium (generic)...

Just thinking out loud.

Nope - I love the idea of national treasures! I have a kit from a different designer that did that. She just didn't have the arch! :( Then she did an add-on to the kit with things specific to the state. I love the kit. I just wish it had more places that I've traveled to.

Another idea would be to add in stuff for National Parks. Yellowstone... ;) Dams. Grand Canyon. Mountains. Lighthouses. Boardwalk.

This could be a fun series kit. I would love to see St. Louis/Gateway Arch first though. Teehee!!! :)

Oh that would make an awesome buffet with each designer taking a different "national treasure." I've been to about all of them, so I could definitely use them. My dad has a PhD in history, so dragging us all over the U.S. to different historical sites was his idea of a good time. LOL!

Great idea! But I see a couple of my competitors here... pretty stiff competition hehe

If I do win, you can bet I'll be asking for help in choosing... I'm not the visionary in the group, LOL! Oh yeah, that reminds me... vote for me :hysterical: (I'm shameless)

I have been to quite a few. I love history and seeing sites and being a tourist and going on road trips and traveling! :)

Jen if you need ideas - I'm in! :) I have loads of ideas (and I know COlleen definitely does!) A buffet like this would be AMAZING! :D Just a general travel buffet would be fun too! Then designers could do add-ons as they choose or are requested...

I started a kit like this once. Was going to do all 50 states with major highway signs, state related info and "site see-ing" types of things, but WAY to big to undertake alone!!

This type of kit would be awesome. I've been to St. Louis too. We walked around, went to the Arch and the zoo. Oh and I worked too. Eek..I don't want to scrap any work related photos. Boooooooooorring.

So funny, I just went to a conference in Orlando and didn't take one photo. It was all work. I know I should document the trip, but it was just too weird to take pics.
