Live Free


This is a picture of my kids while we were sitting on a boat in Downtown Disney. I took a picture of them with the hot air balloon in the background and I immediately envisioned using the papers from the Park Drive collection from WP. I love the hot air balloons in that collection.


 I created this layout yesterday and it took me such a long time to get it the way I wanted. I spent 3 hours working with it and could not get it to work so I had to walk away and watch TV and relax. Surprisingly I didn't get too frustrated because I knew that if I left it it would work itself out later.I finally changed the background and style by ripping strips from the Websters Pages' papers. I masked the card stock with a wood grain mask from Prima. Then I sprayed ink and let it drip.


I used this sketch from Keeping the Best as Inspiration for this layout

There's also a challenge at Frosted Designs called Up Up and Away that is perfect for this challenge using the hot air balloons.

Love this layout,the colors and design!!
I know how it feels when it wont work. I do the same, never have a idea, just doing something, and than if it wont work I walk away from it. Most of the time when I come back I suddenly see the solution.

Well, I'm glad you walked away then came back - those strips of material, lace etc are magical...& I'm in the middle of a LO where I've done just what you've done...so I'll go back to it today thinking 'Keren did it, I can too'!!!! Otherwise, I'll just send it on over to you to fix....nah, just kidding:):):)

When I cannot finish my lo I leave it till the next day, sometimes it helps to look at it at the daylight and at night.
Now it has turned into amazingly beautiful creation
