Hi everyone, I hope you and your families are all keeping safe and healthy. I can't believe that we are July already, where has this year gone?
Its been so busy for us and I just don't seem to get enough time to craft these days.
Today I am sharing a pretty special layout for me. This is a photo of my hubby and I in the Hunter Valley on a hot air balloon ride. We were so lucky to have been able to go up as it rained the day before and they were expecting storms on the day. Lucky for us it held off. The view wasn't the greatest as there was a large amount of smoke from all the bush fires in the area. However we had the best time in the peace and quiet up there and it is something we would definitely do again.

For this layout I have used Stamperia papers which I absolutely love working with. Tearing and layering them vertically the page rather than horizontally.  Flowers are from 49&Market and chipboard is from 2Crafty which has been embossed with Ranger Mixed Media powder. I love this as you leave it thick an it gives your chipboard a finish like real enamel with flecks of metal through it. The ivy leaves were die cut from a Sizzix die. Finishing it off with a few art stones scattered around.

thanks for stopping by
and till next time
keep safe
