Up Up & Away - PageMaps

I have interrupted my Jayce layout catch-up to FINALLY do a layout which has been waiting a long long time. With the last page I posted here, I shared the story about my cloud paper collection and thought it was probably about time I scrapped the photos I intended on scrapping with them...

Up Up & Away

And you will notice I only used one piece of cloud paper... 
The theme of the page is about taking flight as the pictures are of Chloe learning to crawl, the first time I saw her on all fours. She rocked back and forth for a bit then fell and got cranky. It wasn't much longer until she was racing around.

I have used exclusively the Echo Park Everyday Eclectic and did LOTS of fussy cutting! It took me a long time to be happy with the balloon arrangement. I fiddled and changed and moved them around for days!! I also fussy cut some clouds from a strip of the background paper that I saved and layered them on the balloons to help blend them in a little bit. Eventually I got sick of fussing over it and starting just sticking.

I have used dimension a lot on this page. The photos 'step' up in line with the photos again adding to the 'up' theme.
Oh by the way. The design was based on a sketch in the PageMaps archive from April 2013, the middle bottom sketch, I rotated the sketch and took a few little liberties such as moving the title. Happy 8th Anniversary PageMaps.
Thanks dropping in.
