As anyone, the were terribly excited and full of adrenalin, even on the way down still. Days afterwards they were still talking about the rush!
I used one of the sketch from the September 2011 Pagemaps.
The picture in the layout I took on the way down from the top, with the sun behind the ramp. I used a range from Glitz Design, named Vintage Blue. When I saw the range with all its embellishments I fell in love with it. I used some of the embellishments, for this layout. But unfortunately a lot of the embellishments are hearts and very lady like, so I had to be very careful! The flowers and butterflies I used were from Prima. And then I also included a metal frame from Tim Holtz.
I attempted to do some heat embossing, but it was a bit of a mess. The embossing powder only stuck to a portion of the stamp, so half of the stamped image is embossed, and the other half is not. But in the end I actually like the way it turned out. Here are some close ups.
I hope you enjoyed it.
