National Aviation Day Blog Hop

It's a plane! It's a bird! No, it is a plane and this is the Aviation Blog Hop to celebrate National Aviation Day. Our talented crafters took to the sky to create their project for this hop and I hope you will stop by all the blogs, see their high flying projects and leave them a comment.

This blog is hosted by Lorby's World and Jearise will have a give away going on her blog.

My project today is...
Taking us back to the early aviation days... hot air balloons!  This happens to be a  "note carrier".  Jute ribbon  is used as the basket, and the balloon is double sided.

Thank you for stopping by and please fly on over to Sandra.

This is an actual "note carrier" that was used in North Dakota.  The two passenger plane seated a pilot in the back seat and a bundle of mail in the front.  It is the oldest plane in ND.  It is located at the Fargo Air Museum, Fargo, ND.
