A Fun Layout!!!

It's been awhile since I've had fun with a layout.  But when I saw that the challenge over at From Screen 2 Scrap was the poster for the movie Up, I got excited.  How can a layout based on such a bright colorful poster not be enjoyable?!  In order to get all the points for FS2S you had to use clouds, balloons or hot air balloons, and a 3D embellishment, all of which I have done.
I kept it very simple in that I didn't do any stamping, painting, or stitching, etc...  it's just paper and a whole lotta embellishments.  I just kept adding more and more embellies and it was so much fun!  The base paper is Bella Blvd and most of the embellies are from Echo Parks summer lines from last year and this year.  The flowers, and the little turtle are from a kit.  The pictures are of 2 of my best friends and myself.  We've known each other since Kindergarten and went to school together through the 12th grade.  We've started a tradition of meeting in Mackinaw City each fall for a weekend without kids or husbands, and last fall we decided to take a ferry over to Mackinac Island.  As none of us had done this before we thought it would be a great idea to sit on the upper level of the ferry, and these pictures were taken when we were first leaving and still liked that idea.  But it was cold, and windy and WET!  We didn't last long up there, down below we went!

Don't forget to go check out this months challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous!!!  It is to use mini paper stacks, a another really fun challenge!!!
