Doesn't she look happy?
This balloon was given to us by an employee @ the cell phone place I get service from. Gabby love's balloons and held on for dear life to this one. She danced, pranced and twirled with it firmly tied around her wrist. She looked so free and happy.
The background ppr is "Hot Air Balloon" from the Everyday Eclectic collection. I really didn't have a purpose for buying it but I love that it coordinates with the theme of the layout. I painted using white acrylic paint. Then I added Martha Stewart Pink Dahlia and the Swiss Mini Dots template. Then I used Mini Hexagons template with Yellow Canary paint. I added the stitching. I'm not good with the Sew Easy tool yet so I take a ruler and a paper piercer and punch. Then I thread with floss. The yellowish letters are "Eric" by Thickers. Got them @ TJ Maxx a few months ago for $1.99. The journal spot is Basic Gray Kioshi. Got them from Tuesday Morning a few months back for $1.99. A the top I used dotted adhesive and some American Crafts Twine. I then added scraps of hearts and butterflies punched shapes.
Farrah looking cute and crisp on a cold day. I misted over a Spellbinders scalloped circle die with Tattered Angels Electric Blue. I added some stitching around the circle and the paper strip @ the bottom.
