Birthday Balloons


This is going to be a very quick post, as we are going to see 'The Snowman' at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton this afternoon and i'm uploading this, before Alan tells me we need to go !!
UPDATE - we all had a super time and it was very magical, plus we had lunch in the adjoining restaurant to the theatre and had a lovely lunch too.

Today's image is a set i've had for a couple of months and never got round to using, and it's: House Mouse Designs - 'Birthdays / Balloon' but as Harrison seems to be, being invited to a few boys parties lately, it gave me a good opportunity to use it, the papers are : LOTV - 'Bear Necessities', the balloon die is : Sizzlits - 'Balloon', the embossing section is : Cuttlebug - 'Happy Birthday folder': Stickles - 'Turquoise', the ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, the gems are Wildflower Wood Pearl Gems.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

House Mouse - where Challenge HMFMC No: 161 is 'Use A House Mouse Design Stamp, You Haven't Used Before'

Gruffies And Guests - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

The Cutie Pie - where Challenge No: 61 is 'Cute January Blues'

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Add A Bow And A Die' - i've done both

Sweet Sketch 2 - where they are up to Sketch No: 04 

Creative Inspirations - where Challenge No: 249 is 'Ribbons'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would kindly like to leave would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
