Something different to share with you today. I just love scrapbooking but never seem to find the time to create layouts. Reading my Docrafts mag yesterday I thought I really should find more time for layouts as I have so many photos I want to use. As the journalling says this was our first time in a tethered hot air balloon and this is the highest one in the world I believe. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. A beautiful clear day meant we could see for miles and I was so glad I went up in it as I was a little nervous about it.
Although I love it I do find starting a page quite daunting as I have 12" x 12" albums. I sorted through my 12 x 12 papers as I knew I had bought the Crafty Bitz balloon paper recently, reduced to 20p, as it would go so well with this photo. I wanted to keep most of the colours fairly muted so used the brown HOTP papers. The title was made with some old rub ons from Poundland. I added a bit of distressing with torn paper and the star cut with a Sizzi die from Core'dinations which I sanded and added a brad. I've tried something new with the ribbon and really like the result. I made a frame for the photo by debossing some Core'dinations with swiss dots and sanding and added some wooden star buttons which I bought in America. I must try to find some more of these. The journal note is Papermania Persimmon.
