Up and away...

Hi everyone! Thanks for your Get Well wishes, as yet I am still waiting for the meds to do their stuff! We intended going to our caravan today but as well as hubby thinking we should stay close to our Medical Centre, I really don't think I could have withstood the journey!

I have been distracting myself today, reading, pottering around, watching TV and...making a journal page for Erika's 'In the Sky/In the Air' theme at Art Journal Journey. 

I'm sure we have all seen children letting go of their balloons and seeing their reactions. My little AALLandcreate Fiona Paltridge girlie had a whole handful of them when the wind whisked them out her hands and up into the air! Being such a good little girl she just sighed, although there were tears in her eyes!

I made this page using a few AALLandcreate stencils and stamps and a Tim Holtz snarky comment!

Thanks for looking, Chrisx

I love the emotion this evoked and how you described her feelings after loosing the balloons. This is an amazing page, full of movement and tenderness. Thanks for sharing it with us at Art Journal Journey using Erika's theme.

Ha-ha-she is a lot of fun. I think she does want to cause a scene with all those fun balloons. I love them and her. Is she one of your new stamps? And good idea to hang close if the meds haven't kicked in. Hopefully you'll feel like yourself again very soon. Thanks for joining in at Art Journal Journey. As before, your support is much appreciated. Hugs-Erika

Another delightful sky page - of course it's sad to lose a balloon, but also lovely to see them floating free as they're surely meant to.
