Something in the Air - Digital Collage

This weeks theme for The Three Muses is "Something in the Air."

It reminded me of a time when Damian and I were supposed to go Hot Air Ballooning, which unfortunately got canceled due to weather. It was an anniversary gift that I was SO excited about...and then very bummed about.

Mother Nature can be so testy sometimes.

I'm really hoping that we'll be able to schedule a trip in the immediate future...but for now, I'll settle on my fantasy image. :-)

Hope you like! Can you guess who the people are?? hehe.

Modified Elements:
Male is Damian (my fiancee)
Female is me - A picture of me scaling a wall in Haiti during our visit in '01
Background is a combination of 2 backgrounds from Scrapbook Graphics & Scrap Orchard
Our hot air balloon is from Scrapbook Graphics
Other hot air balloons are from Digital Collage Sheet to go (off Etsy)
Sun is from Scrap Orchard
Frame, shoes, crown & mittens - not sure where I picked those up.
Clowns are from Itkupilli (Off Etsy)
Building background is from a postcard I purchased off Ebay
