Happy, happy 40th to my most fabulous friend Leslie! For those of you who dont know her, she works for Unicef and has traveled to about 27 different countries for both work and pleasure (shopping in all the markets along the way!) So, fitting to this jet setter, I made her a rolling suitcase with a fraction of the places she has been.
One of my favorites is the Alaska cruise patch that I based on Art Deco cruise posters. The Unicef logo was a must and I included an Italian Dictionary as a nod to her time in Italy taking a language class.
Oh, and by the way... the cake was a delicious chocolate cake with coffee buttercream. YUM!
