What A View

When I saw the new challenge at   "SCRAP OUR STASH"  I knew I would go back and scrap some more pictures of our hot air balloon trip back in 2015 while on vacation.   I've been trying lately to fill in old vacation albums with more layouts from each trip so this was the perfect opportunity.

My background paper is from the Shimelle Star Shine collection.  The banners were cut from scraps, I tried to pull colors from the balloons on the background paper.   Then I pulled out another piece of Shimelle paper from the True Stories collection and that is where I fussy cut all the little snippets of words,   I did the ones that went with our thoughts about this experience, a first for both of us.

The pictures were the set up of the balloon, on the trip itself and then after we landed.   I thought about doing three titles  Start, During, Finished by the 3 sets of pictures but just wasn't happy with how it would lay out after I cut the word snippets so I went with  What a View title.   And that was so true, it was beautiful to see everything from above,  I have a picture of me looking up at other balloons going by and a picture of my husband looking down at the scenery below.

Part of the challenge was to include clouds in your layout and I added 3 wood veneer clouds on the blue banner, plus there are clouds in the back ground paper and in one picture.  Plus the main inspiration of the Disney movie "Up"  that is why I went with the hot air balloon pictures and paper.
