Happy Days!

This hot air balloon image from the Verve Up, Up and Away set just makes my happy! I love hot air balloons, I know I've mentioned it before, but I was lucky enough to go on a hot air balloon ride in Napa with my hubby (boyfriend at the time). It was about 11 years ago, but it was one of the coolest things I've ever done!

This is from the VLV August sketch challenges on the Verve forum of SCS, this was the forth sketch for the month. It is also an inspiration challenge, I picked one of the posted photos that had bedding in these colors. Unusual color combo, but fun for a change. We are on to the September sketch challenges over there now, every month I vow to try to keep up, we'll see if I do a bit better this month.

So glad it is Friday, weekend is coming. My hubby traveled this week and will be home very late tonight. I really need a break tomorrow, the kids are fighting like crazy. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Really pretty, Kathleen! I love the swirly texture of the clouds...I think I may be too scared to take a balloon ride; I like to stay planted on the ground!
