LOC High Flyers

Some moments were meant to be captured and this is one of them!  Two of my children, along with my DH got to go on a Helicopter ride - the first thing my DH grabbed was his camera and I am so glad!!

Our neighbour is the Manager of the Helicopter Rescue Base as well as a pilot there and does test flights at times - and this was one of them - he was able to take three extras - what a thrill for them all!

I just had to do a layout and used Layers of Color Vintage Medallion Art Stencils, sponging them with Distressing Ink in Scattered Straw and Walnut Stain, a large brad was added to the centre of each medallion (thanks to my dear friend Pat!)

I used the SU Spiral Punch to add an edge to each photo, to give it more of an aged look, along with distressing around the photo edges and the DP's.  I sponged around the edges with the Distressing Ink and lightly distressed around the photo and the DP.

The sentiment is from a Blog Candy and is stick on - so easy!

I have to say, this was one of the quickest layouts I have done.  Tempted as I am to add more, I don't want to take away from the photos - especially to keep it with a partially masculine feel - my son would be horrified if I added any flowers!  LOL!
