Monday TAWS Be Inspired #26

Happy  Monday,
Did you all have a nice weekend?  We did but boy oh boy was it cold out.  Jack had his opening day ceremonies for baseball and it was freezing out with a strong wind.  We were all bundled up.  It was miserable and then sunday he had his first game.  The sun was out at least but still freezing.  It was fun to see him in the game and have fun.

It is time for another challenge from The Alley Way Stamps and this one was a fun one (well, aren't they all fun?).  You can go HERE to see all the rules!  Here is the inspiration.
And here is my take on it.  I went with the color orange and stamped out the balloon.  I used some Echo Park paper from a couple of years ago and then added some more clouds and colored some pearls orange.  I like how it turned out!

supplies
paper, stickers- echo park
stamps- TAWS
pearls- hobby lobby
dies- pti

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new project from Some Odd Girl (there is a new digi release this week and it is awesome).  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
