Fall Scrapbooking

I've been crazy in my personal life this week. My daughter got accepted to a new preschool on Friday, that's closer to my home and I've been running around like a chicken with my head cut off since.

The paperwork that you have to fill out, takes more time than it does when you are getting married! Then they sent us shopping for clothes and other things.. but I'm finally done and breathing a bit easier today.

My scrapbook Club meets tonight, and I bet they WISH we were making this page.. I had some fun with the suspension technique which is usually used in cardmaking.. I'm thinking I will just cut the page protector so you can still play with the element..

This hot air balloon ride is at storyland in new hampshire and we spent a day there going on EVERY ride we could find! Her favorite is the hot air balloon ride. Mom is not a big fan of heights, but I would do almost anything for my daughter. When you flip the suspension part of my page over, theres a photo of alexis and I in the balloon waiting in line to get on the ride.
There's an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of paper glued onto the 12x12" piece, and cut with scissors to create the whimsical effect.. I had a fun time making the pages and capturing our day on paper. This one will be going straight in the album.
