PaperCraft Star - Challenge #9

PaperCraft Star has a Photo Inspiration Challenge for you this week!


You can post your entries today through Saturday August 21st at noon EST! Voting will begin Saturday and run through Tuesday August 24th, so don't forget to stop by and vote for your favorite!! Stop by the PCS blog today, tomorrow and Friday to see all the inspiring projects from the Design Team!

I just love the photo inspiration challenges!
It's fun to see where everyone gets their inspiration from and all the different projects!!

I was inspired by the beautiful hot air balloons in the photo! The Tall Tales designer paper by Stampin' Up! was perfect! I created a layout of my daughter and her love of books using the air balloons and clouds from the paper line as my embellishments!



I did a lot of fussy cutting, tearing and inking! I also put several of the pieces up on pop dots at different heights to give the layout dimension and texture! I just love how it came out!

The journaling on the left reads, "You just love books! You love to flip through them and hear the stories. I enjoy watching as you let your imagination soar! I hope that your current love for books sparks a lifetime love of reading!"

Supply List:
Paper: Confetti Cream and Chocolate Chip card stock by Stampin' Up!
Patterned Paper: Tall Tales by Stampin' Up!
Ink: So Saffron, Old Olive, and Chocolate Chip Ink pads and Chocolate Chip marker by Stampin' Up!
Other: Pop dots and a good pair of scissors!
