Let it be said that when I do something, I do it wholeheartedly... For the last eight weeks, I have been buried under the five books of the ongoing epic series of A Song of Ice and Fire. Plowing through 4,500 pages in eight weeks have reduced me to a shadow of a scrapbooker emerging to create only when a deadline is looming! I am both happy and sad to say that the quest has come to an end finally tonight. I shall have free time again! Maybe I will finally clean the bathroom or something! The sad part is that now the long wait begins for the author to pen the next two books in the series. I think I will scrapbook while waiting the next few years for him to write, lol.
Meanwhile, I squeezed in making this card this past weekend. Gosh Doodlebug is just too cute to describe!! I used the "hello spring" collection. I also broke into the new Doodlebug stamps and ink pads!! Those stamped balloons are so colorful and matches perfectly with the cardstock border sticker!
I should mention that I actually had the balloons cut using my Cameo. I had purchased the Make the Cut software a long time ago so I could trace an image and import it to cut. I did that with these balloons, while they are not perfect, it sure beats having to hand cut them! I hid the biggest imperfections behind the jewels I added :)
I have a few more close-up photos, tips and tricks that are on the Doodlebug's blog. Now it's time for me to head to the sack, without a book in hand :)
