Up Up & Away in my beautiful balloon

Sorry for the picture quality, its rainy and foggy here and going to be that way for next 2-3 days so didn't want to wait to get this posted.

This is my 2nd layout from our hot air balloon trip on our vacation last week.    WE had a blast.
It's hard to get full pictures in a 3 man basket, but we took pictures of each other while up in the air.
We were in Albuquerque and couldn't see the mountains to well in the distance because of a haze that morning but we flew over a lot of homes, a stream and a small river and that was fun.     We could hear all the dogs barking everytime the air was heated.   They reacted to that noise every time.   But other than those times it was so peaceful just floating up in the air.

For this layout I used the Make It Monday Sketch #37 at "The Memory Nest"   I thought it was perfect for just the pictures of each of us in the balloon.    I was so thrilled to have this balloon paper in the Echo Park - Sweet Day collection.

Check out all the details for the challenge HERE for the "The Memory Nest" challenge.
