June Challenge

In honor of the most popular month for weddings, the June Challenge over at Scrap Our Stash is Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue. It can be any or all of the combinations and does not have to be about a wedding!
My layout represents Something Old and Something Blue. The blue in the photos and on the page is obvious, while the barnstormer theme takes you back in time.

Here's what I read about barnstorming in Wikipedia: 
"Barnstorming was a popular form of entertainment in the 1920s in which stunt pilots would perform tricks with airplanes, either individually or in groups called a flying circus. Barnstorming was the first major form of civil aviation in the history of flight. The term barnstormer also applied to pilots who flew throughout the country selling airplane rides, usually operating from a farmer's field for a day or two before moving on."
The barnstormer we saw at the Air Show last summer was amazing, even in this day when air travel is commonplace and space travel possible. I can't imagine how thrilling this must have been 100 years ago. Now it's your turn to take the June Challenge. See all the details HERE! With this wide open theme, the sky's the limit! (pun intended)
