Zip Line Excursion

Here is a layout I did of my Zip Line excursion while in Riviera Maya, Mexico.  It was my least favorite excursion.  I am deathly afraid of heights.  Why I agreed to go on this I dont know!!  I bawled like a baby 2 times and was so glad when it was over.  You see once you leave the first post there was no way of getting down. 

Everyday Paper Dolls for the trees and chickens
Old West for the girl
Black embroidery thread for the line. 
Pop dotted the trees trunk, girl and chickens for deminsion.

New Orleans Saints Cross

I ventured away from scrapbooking in this project. My daughter's boyfriend is a huge Saints fan. I had ordered these crosses back in September and just couldnt get motivated until his birthday came around. I was so afraid of messing it up but I think it turned out pretty good. He loved it! That made me feel good :).
