Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 33 - Red, White and Blue

Well I did say I was going to do a page layout for the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 33- Red, White and Blue, but I changed my mind and decided to have a go at making a hot air balloon. Well not to sure if it really is like a hot air balloon but it does have the same effect. We don't celebrate the 4 Th of July as its an American custom but have a look at the Cheery Lynn Designs Inspirational Blog to see what the talented designers have come up with.
The dies I have used starting from the bottom up are
Mega Tea Party Doily DL 158
Princess Tree B 180
Lace Corner Deco D B164
Exotic Butterfly Small Set of 3 DL112
Spring Flower Burst Doily w/ Angel Wing DL 221
I have also used White and Blue Card Candi available also from Scrappy-go-Lucky in various colours.
So here is my little Balloon and Basket of on a journey,
I added a couple of my little bears also in Red and White Jackets they look so cute
 I love using the Lace Corners for a flower I cut out three of them and then just scrunched two of them up.
I have added the Card Candi in various places on the Basket and the Balloon, and of course lots of little Butterflies to help keep the Balloon in the air.
This is a close up of the Balloon shape I cut out 6 of each of the Die Spring Flower and 6 of the Wings and backed and glued them together.
This is the Mega Tea Party Doily that I have used for the Basket.
I have cut around the edges into the middle to form the basket, and then glued them together to form the sides of the Basket.
Well I hope you like my Little Hot Air Balloon I just have to find somewhere to hang it now.
Well keep an eye out for my first post on the Design Team  for Scrappy-go-Lucky I  have made some cards with the new PION Paper.
Enjoy Shelley
