Happy Tuesday to you! I have some photos of my husband's zipline
adventure from our Costa Rica trip. While we were hiking canopy trails,
he took to the air on a zipline tour. There were around 20 different
stops along the way, with some significant distances. The last leg was
3/4 of a mile long and you have to double up so you have the weight to
get all the way to the finish platform and not stuck in the middle. They
had a photographer along and he got the CD.
I'm back with another Costa Rica layout! One of the really cool
things we did was hike a couple of canopy trails. These trails are like
normal hiking trails, until you get to a gully, then you walk on a long
suspension bridge that goes right out over the tops of the trees. It's a
really unique look, but more on that in a future layout. These forests
are high up in the mountains. Cost Rica is pretty narrow, only 76 miles
at the most narrow point, and is divided by a mountain range that tops
out at 12,500 feet. Monteverde, where we went hiking is about 5000 feet.
It is a cloud magnet, trapping the cloud cover that blows in from
either the Carri bean or the Pacific, depending on which way the wind is
blowing, enveloping the forest in a blanket of warm moisture.
For my layout I started by cutting a matte from A Walk In The Clouds. I left this white and placed on blue scripty paper. Next I cut the clouds from Happy Clouds
in both vellum and white card stock. I used distress ink to color the
card stock clouds in dreamy blues. For my title I used the last 3 words
in Child @ Heart.
Be sure to come by the shop and find a cut file to help tell your story! See you next time
