oh! this is so cool. I live in spring hill, Florida...not too many people from here!
I'm about 1 1/2 hours south of you, here in Tampa!
There's so much I could do - I think the hard part will be to narrow down my options...

I am in the center of the USA, more  or less...home of Pikes Peak-where America the Beautiful was written...

I see it every day, so I need to rethink it in a way that will translate to the rest of the world!!!!

OMG I can't think of anything, I was brought up in Norfolk, UK which pretty much is only known for farming and the Norfolk broads (lots of waterways) that I can think of, and now I live in Cheltenham, UK which is most famous for horseracing, ack.  Will do a little surfing for ideas, else might give this one a miss.  Defo looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with tho!

Ooh I forgot that Holst was born in Cheltenham and that it's a Spa Town and a centre for education, thank you wikipedia, hmmmm.... ideas flowing...

i think this is a great theme for a challenge...now i live in Sevilla, Spain, and i truly love it...but it has so different caracteristics...ho me of great poets like Becquer, Antonio and Manuel Machado, home of bullfighting (wich i hate Lips sealed Angry), full of temples, home of Fiesta (you know, here everyday is a party, and if its not it seems too), it has one the most famous Holy Week celebration in Spain...im thinking for a while and i couldnt choose a face of the city to work with....hmmmm.....h mmmm......lets see Grin

This should be interesting. I live in Regina, SK, Canada. The Queen City that rhymes with fun and is home to the longest bridge over the shortest distance of water (it was a make work project during the Depression!)

Oooh, I love Sevilla! I hope I can travel back to Spain before I get too old.

How bloody cool would it be to get together with other craftsters in our own towns to make a collaborative entry!

This challenge would be great for all of us in the Make-A-Friend Swap, since this month, as part of the first segment of the swap, we're crafting something that's an introduction to who we are and/or where we're from. So now there's an added bonus of a Craftster challenge to make sure it's an especially good creation! I think I'm going to attempt a tunnel card.

Obviously Edinburgh, UK, is a fabulous place, but I needed a quick google to come up with some uniquely Edinburgh facts.  The dude who invented the telephone was born here.  But the fact that appeals to my love of shopping is that we have the world's oldest department store, which opened in 1838!!!
Edinburgh is one of my absolute favorite cities in the world! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

When I think of the Hamptons, I think of summer homes and vacation. Grin
