I love the bright colours of this layout! When I bought this paper, it was one of those impulse buys to which I thought maybe someday we will go for a hot air balloon ride ... maybe. When I was hunting through my stash for paper to use with these photos I came across this and thought parasailing is probably the closet we will come so why not use it!
I really wanted to emphasis the background paper with the balloons so I started with it and built my entire layout around it going from the right side to the left side. This might sound weird but most of the time I start on the left side and always work to the right. It was different but I honestly can say I love how this one turned out! I did struggle briefly with the journalling spot as I found it seemed to just be floating there but I put it on a mat which seemed to anchor it and the crisis was averted!
