Away We Go (or TTA PeopleMover)


I'm back with another layout created with Scraptastic's August kit, The Story Begins. Here I used some of the more muted papers from Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic collection, focusing on the soft green and pink to compliment the colors in my photo. I love the hot air balloon stickers and direction arrow, as they fall in well with my theme, our family riding the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover. This easy-going ride at Walt Disney World remains one of my favorites and I journaled my fondness for it on the kraft cardstock bordering my page. 
 
Check out the title! That overly wordy title was only made possible by a well-stocked Alphabean letter sticker sheet by Jillibean Soup. These are becoming some of my favorite letters (right behind Thickers) for the sheer number of letters on each sheet. How often can you pick up a pack of letter stickers and find that many T's or O's, etc? Upper and lower case letters are included all on one sheet. I loved finding a sheet of these in the kit!
Here's a closer look at a favorite page detail. The balloon and cloud stickers were backed with cardstock to give them dimension and enable easier layering on the page. A length of twine wrapped around one of the balloons is drawn through one of the kraft tags and tied into a pretty bow. Away we go!

I really like your title-I can't believe you were able to get all of those letters out of one sheet of stickers-that's impressive!

I love this collection too, and it fits perfectly on this Disney page. The idea to tie twine around the balloon to add a tag is genius. I love finding a good letter sheet that doesn't run out too! So rare.
