CloudFormation is not very elegant. Things become complicated with the concept region, zonal resources (same AMI is represented by a different id in different region etc). Try Google Clouds's Deployment Manager. Functionally similar, but Google Cloud Deployment Manager is far easier (everything is a global resource), Jinja based templates (you get to write for's and if's, evaluate lists, dictionaries inside templates .. )
