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.

The Boys Rule file was just perfect for these photos. I also added some things from Graffiti Greetings and Let's Make Music.

In The Clouds

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.
