Hi all!  Well, we have returned from our vacation in Wisconsin and I’m really wishing we were still there!  We didn’t do as much as in past summers, but still a lot.  It’s hard to believe the kids have about 2 weeks left of summer vacation.  I have lots of home improvement projects I’d like to take on once they are in school, so I plan to be quite busy!

Before I left Wisconsin, I had to make a baby shower card for my cousin’s girlfriend.  We’ve had a little baby boom again in my family and all boys!

Like I mentioned, I bought limited supplies with me to Wisconsin.  I had my die binders, chock full of MFT die-namics and an MFT shipping box with an assortment of papers and a fair amount of MFT stamps.  I then grabbed a scrapping caddy I had received years ago and filled it with inks, blocks, some embellishments and tools.   Seeing how I can manage without all of the tools and supplies I have in my craft room, I am beginning to think a HUGE destash should happen!  Especially the patterned paper — but they are so pretty, it makes me not want to get rid of them!

Anyway, for this sketch, I flipped it and pulled some greens since I didn’t pack much in blues.  I used my Gingham background stamp again — they are certainly paying off!  The balloons are cut with the Balloon STAX dies and at the same time of cutting the balloon, I cut out the Peek-a-Boo Uppercase Alphabet letters on each.  There wasn’t enough pop on the balloons when I put them down, so I used white embroidery floss to stitch the balloons.  A little pierced fishtail flag with a SU sentiment, some twine and a few little rhinestones finished it off.
