The Red Balloon, or Le Ballon Rouge, is one of my favorite books/films of all time!

This beloved vintage book is transformed into a journal / scrapbook / notebook and it includes the entire story! I envision it as being a travel memoir where you can put your trip photos and souvenirs -- the story of Pascal and his wandering balloon is perfect accompaniment to YOUR story.

But your ideas for it will be just as good!

The journal is 7 inches x 10.25 inches (with coil binding it is 7 3/8 inches wide).
It contains 28 heavy scrapbook pages (56 total) interspersed with the pages from the book. The only page missing is the one I used to adorn the front:

"Balloons from everywhere flew up into the air,
forming a line high into the sky."

The front is also decorated with "balloons" made from punched paper and colored with red pencil.

I crafted a bookmark made from round labels I had in my stash (red on one side, blue on the other). This is attached with a piece of red raffia.

The Red Balloon (French: Le Ballon Rouge) is a 1956 fantasy short film directed by French filmmaker Albert Lamorisse.

The thirty-four minute short, which follows the adventures of a young boy who one day finds a red balloon, was filmed in the Ménilmontant neighborhood of Paris, France.

It won numerous awards, including an Oscar for Lamorisse for writing the best original screenplay in 1956 and the Palme d'Or for short films at Cannes. The film also became popular with children and educators.

Lamorisse used his children as actors in the film. His son, Pascal Lamorisse, plays Pascal in the main role, and his daughter Sabine portrays a little girl. (from wikipedia)
