Mojo Balloons, and a Rollercoaster


I'm home with Trey this morning. Crossing fingers it's Croup over Swine Flu. The DR took forever to get thru this morning, and I know the place is gonna be slam packed busy this afternoon. Silver lining in this is that I had to stay home and stamp! LOL!
This is my take on the Mojo Monday Sketch.
It's also Pink Elephant's Fall challenge.
CCEE make a tall card!
And Kitchen Sink's challenge.
Love how this turned out. I don't do tall cards too often. And love the paper pieced balloons. And look at those acorn brads? I got those at Michael's. Aren't they the cutest?!
Supplies: Penelope TAC paper and ribbon, copics, DCWV cardstock, Palette ink pad, nesties, Verve stamps.
I even managed to get a scrapbook page done. I started last night, but was able to finish it this morning. It's been too long since I did one of those. I'm behind on them, so I'll probably be posting more of those in the coming weeks. This was of Gabi and her friend going on a big rollercoaster at Busch Gardens. Freaked her out! One of those priceless moments in childhood! I was even able to capture the photo of her waiting. It's grainy, but I love that I was able to snap it. This layout is from the Cherish book. I always say this, but I heart that book!
Thanks for stopping by!

Just catching up on everyone's blog after my holiday. What gorgeous cards you have been making as usual. How lucky you are to have Michaels in which to hop. Just went there and Joanns whilst on holiday in New England. Fab shops. Great scrapbook page, must do some myself. Love Busch Gardens but not the coasters. Hope you will be entering my candy.

Diggin' the tall card - those hot air ballons are awesome. Hope Trey gets to feeling better soon! Lots of illnesses going around that's for sure! Cool scrapbook page - oh how I wish there was more time in a day so I could manage to scrapbook a few :o)
