Anyway, this is shadowbox that is collaged in the back with pictures of the U.S. (Golden Gate, New York City, Mt. Rushmore).  The couple in the hot air balloon are my grandparents, based on their senior photos from the 1930's.  The balloon is counter-weighted to the sun, so that the sun sets behind a cloud as the balloon rises.  Enid's arm is jointed so that she can grasp the basket or hang onto Frances' arm.  I didn't make the paper flowers on the bottom, but I did make the origami stars around the upper edges of the frame.
