Loving this!

Just a quick post of a scrapbook page that I did yesterday at an all day Crop with my buds!
We had so much fun! It was our Christmas party! Yes...we know it is after Christmas! It just seems to work out best for everybody's schedules.
Anyhow...I don't post very many of my LO's, because, frankly I don't do that many. But my DH and I went to a Balloon Rally this fall with my sister and her family.  I just had to document this adventure, because we just had so much fun! The colors of the balloons were fabulous and it was a beautiful fall day. Just perfect for photos and LO's.

I followed this awesome sketch from Creative Scrappers:

I found this Spellbinder's die called Up, Up and Away. It was perfect because it has a hot air balloon.
When I purchased it, I thought there were more cuts on the balloon. But it is mainly embossed areas, so if you look closely you can see that I had to sand the embossed areas to make them show up, then I sponged the edges in white.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
