ANTICIPATION - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Good Morning Friends, time for the latest Design Team Reveal at Lasting Memories Layout Challenges. We are continuing with the August theme of Transportation and today's challenge is Hot Air Balloons.

Here is my layout...

This photo is of my Mom waiting for the crew to stand the basket up for our Hot Air Balloon ride. Because of my Mom's age, they had her climb into the basket before the balloon was fully inflated so that she wouldn't have to climb into the basket. Her face is just full of anticipation.

Here are a couple of closeups...

I added some Hot Air Balloon stamps to the background paper.

All of the papers are from a My Mind's Eye paper pad called "The Best of...", I added a library type journalling pocket and card to record my story.

I used sketch #335 from Sketches In Thyme as my starting point.

Be sure to stop by the Lasting Memories Blog to check out what the rest of the team created. We would love to see what you create with this challenge.

Thanks for stopping by! Stay Crafty!!!
