Where did the month go??

Can you believe it's almost May?  Where did April go?  I'm feeling Spring Fever right now... I need to see color and am using lots of it in my work lately!  I have many projects to share today with you... so bare with me.

The first is a fun hot air balloon artwork that is made entirely from Pink Paislee papers, stamps, twine, packaging, Basically Bare chipboard, felt, canvas, and cardboard shapes, AND wire. Oh and LOTS of hot glue!  Tee hee...  I did this in conjunction with Basically Bare and Pink Paislee's swap.  Here is the original post on the BB blog.

Next up, I wanted to share my last project for Scrapbooking from the Inside Out kit for April.  This one was based around the scraps I had left and the photo of myself chillin out by the pool in the Dominican Republic.  I'm always so content in the sun by a pool of water!

The journaling using the Basic Grey paper.

I love those letters and the phrases that I cut the flag ending.
Bling adds a certain amount of fun to the flowers that I added using the template.  I used Faber-Castell Aquarelle pencils  to create these. 

BTW, there is a Design Team call for SFTIO kits.  I am super happy working for them and loved my term there.  I am reapplying because I LOVE their colors, themes, and especially the community that forms this site.  It's an amazing group of artists of all abilities, experiences, and ages.  We share something of our lives, selves, and experiences each month!  I love the way we focus on our feelings, worries, successes, and take a snapshot of ourselves rather than focusing on our families or kids all the time.  We need to document ourselves too!  Share the real us... the flawed, lovely, and sometimes crazy selves.   I hope I get a chance to join them on this journey again!
Apply today!!   Click on the previous link and get the details!

I'm on my way to Akron, Ohio to demo Faber-Castell DMC products to stampers and scrappers in Adventures in Stamping Expo!  I will be in Marco's Paper booth so find me there if you are in the area!
