Thursday Balloon Fun

Hey there,

I need your help! I entered Practical Scrappers layout contest and I made it to the first round.  The first round is all about voting.  My layout is up today and the top 25 layouts (there were 70 all together over the past 6 days) will move on the round 2.  I really need your help and your votes!  If you wouldn't mind today stopping over HERE and voting for my layout. I would really appreciate it!

Well life got in the way last night and I couldn't work on my lesson 3 from my class.  I have it all planned out in my head but with the grocery store, 2 loads of laundry, and hangin' with my boys and cooking dinner  after school I just couldn't get any crafty time in.  Oh well, hopefully tonight I can squeeze a bit in. 

This is a layout that I created using my Burlap and Buttercups July kit.  Yes, there are soooo many goodies in each kit that I am still creating with them.  In the spring, summer and fall, our backyard in the early morning and evenings are filled with hot air balloons!  There is a small airport by our house and the balloons take off and land there.  It is awesome.  The kids could be on the swings and there are balloons right behind them.  The are so close that it feels like you can touch them.  You can even talk to the people in the baskets!  I thought this paper was perfect for my layout!


paper- mme
cardstock- bazzill
dies- paper trey ink
rosettes- american crafts
stickers- maya road, bella blvd

Thanks so much for stopping by and your VOTE!  I truly appreciate it.  I will be back tomorrow with hopefully a new card!  See you then!
have a crafty day!
