End of the Line: A Zippy Layout

When Ben and I traveled to Costa Rica last fall we knew that the one tour we really wanted to do was a ziplining tour. We used Ecotrans (awesome tour company if you stay near Playa Flamingo!) for the Congo Trail Canopy Tour.

I am terrified of heights so I was very nervous entering our first line. But once I got going, I had a blast! I didn't try any crazy tricks  like going upside down or flying like Superman, but of course Ben went for it. He was a total professional!

The jungle was really beautiful. While flying down the ziplines, we also enjoyed iguanas, howler monkeys, and exotic plants. It was hands-down the most adventurous thing I have ever done!

So for my first layout from our Costa Rica Trip, I went with a ziplining layout!

End of the Line layout journaling reads: While in Costa Rica we went to the Congo Trail Canopy where we traveled down eleven lines and crossed several suspension bridges. We were even joined by howler monkeys! It was scary at first but we quickly got the hang of it. After all this means no fear"
Supplies: Bo Bunny Zoology Collection paper, Authentique and Thickers alphabet stickers, brads, memory thread
I saw the challenge over at Scrap it With a Song was REM's "It's the End of the World as we Know It" and thought I could play with the title and make it "End of the Line." There is also a line in the song that says, "After all this means no fear." That was the perfect sentiment for this layout! I used a sketch that I found on Sketch Support to make this layout. I made the banner in the sketch into a mini zipline by adding a tree.

Thanks for reading and happy weekend!

XOXO,

What a great layout! You make it look so fun, but I'm still not trying it. Good luck with your submisson. Hey, you can make a tutorial on your handmade embellishment.
