Up, Up and Away with Benji

Welcome to an extra special Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!  This month we are taking Angie McKenzie's sweet pup, Benji, on a trip around the world with us. We are sharing a bit about where we are from, so fasten your seatbelts and get ready for an exciting trip!

I'm from a town so nice they named it twice...Walla Walla!  We are located in the southeastern corner of Washington state and summer has officially arrived!  Every year during Mother's Day weekend, hot air balloons from all around the United States come for the annual Balloon Stampede.  It is my favorite event of the year, so I thought it would be fun to share the experience with Benji!

I created a bright and cheerful scrapbook page and a card using the Something for Everything and Say Something Ephemera Packs, along with the Full of Life DSP.  How fun are these?!?

For the scrapbook page, I cut some squares of the Full of Life DSP and placed them in a pattern that reminded me of some of the hot air balloons. Bits and pieces from the Ephemera Packs added a little extra fun to the page and required no stamping! The picture is from the Nite Glow this year. As the sun goes down, the tethered balloons light up the night.  Isn't it beautiful Benji?

I had so much fun with the scrapbook page that I kept going and made a card to go along with it!  How fun is this pattern of DSP?!?

It's time to take off to go visit Leonie in Australia!  Safe travels Benji!
