Post No.2147 Our Big Summer Highlight

I made a spread in one of my Altered Books to memorate a visit to our annual international event for skydivers and balloonists organized by our neighbour community. It takes place in the first week of July every year and is one of the Summer Highlights of our region.




 Hope to see you at the Challenge where Elizabeth and Bleubeard are hosts this month!


Eine Doppelseite in einem meiner Altered Books als Erinnerung an meinen Besuch beim diesjährigen Internationalen Fallschirmspringer- und Ballonfahrertreffen hier ín unserer Nachbargemeinde, das jedes Jahr in der ersten Juliwoche abgehalten wird und mit zu den Sommer Highlights unserer Region zählt. Gedacht für AJJ - Elizabeth's und Bleubeards Summer-Love Thema.

  4. This is another theme I hadn't considered. I swear, you have come up with the most original and creative ideas, ones that I have actually DONE in summer, like see hot air balloons in flight, but didn't think of when I was coming up with ideas for AJJ this month. This is an amazing mixed media collage, and I simply adore both the hot air balloons AND the landscape below the balloons. This is one really fertile are you depicted!

    Thank you again for such a unique and wonderful AJJ entry and for all your support of my theme this month.

  8. That is such a cool page Susi. It looks like a quilt. I bet the festival was quite something to see. I've seen balloons a couple of times and they are pretty amazing. Have you ever gone up in one? Not me. I love all the colors and happiness on your spread Susi. Nice. Hugs-Erika

  12. Hello my friend, just doing my commenting and love this with the balloons, never been in one but plan to before I age too much. Yes I am a retired nurse only after looking after my dad several years ago, until then I did still nurse and loved it...yes I also loved to work with flowers and floral art. I do love your clever use of tea bags and boxes and your pages are very delightful...xx

  21. These "tea" balloons are such fun and I love the colourful patchwork fields below. You've made an abstract representation and yet it looks just like the land and sky with the balloons floating in the air, that's very clever. It must have been great to see all these balloons in the sky on the special day.

  22. What a brilliant and cheerful page this is! Love that patchwork of fields! Hugs, Chrisx

  23. Toll deine vielen Super-Ballons mit der Werbung für grünen Tee :)!!
    Das Fest muss in natura sehr interessant gewesen sein (obwohl - ich würde mich niemals in einen Ballon wagen)! Die Washi-Tapes (kenne ich von deinem Letterjournal - ich hab sie ja nachgezeichnet :)) machen sich sehr gut als Feld und Wiese!
