Happy Birthday Tyler!
I went to a 5 hour crop this weekend and tried to catch up on some scrapbooking. I have been so caught up in doing swaps over the last several months that my scrapbooking has taken a backseat. I was able to do 6 pages at the crop and then come home and do 6 more. Nice! Imagine my delight when I checked my email today and found that one of my pages would work for not just one challenge, but TWO different challenges. Woo Hoo!
The challenge for this week at Bitten By the Bug 2 was to use balloons on your project. The challenge at My Craft Spot was "Make It Pop" by using dimensional adhesive on your project.
OK, this is how far behind I am in my scrapbooking. These pages are from my nephew's First Birthday...in 2009! He's going to be 4 next month. That big orange space if for the journaling.
The presents are actually Christmas presents from the Christmas Cheer cartridge. I cut them at various sizes from 2"-3". I used glossy accents on all the bows. I cut the balloons from Stretch your Imagination. I'm not sure of the size. I wanted the balloon part to be about 2" so I just stretched them out using Design Studio until they were the right size.
I also used glossy accents on the balloons.
It's kind of hard to tell, but the invitation and all the balloons are adhered with dimensional adhesive.
I used primary colored cardstock from my stash. I have NO idea where that piece of patterned paper came from.... I have had it for a long time!
