For my project I chose to do a desk top photo flip album. Something about this paper collection made me think of a hot air balloon and I just couldn't get that image out of my mind. My family means so much to me and when they are around love IS in the air! The balloon carries some of my favorite pictures of my family and is easily flipped to see them all. Take a look:
This is the front cover, heavily embellished. Since this will sit on my desk I added loads of pretties! This was by far the most time consuming part. The front balloon is stitched on the top to look like the strings that hang from the old time balloons. I stitched the criss cross design with embroidery floss and added pearls at the intersection to cover the holes I made. I used We R Memory Keepers tags and gumdrop heart brads as well.
Inside page one.....tags, flowers, gumdrop brads, and a love note charm.
These lovely fingers are those of my oldest son. Sweetie that he is, he helped me this morning!
All the above pages use the We R Memory Keepers Love Struck collection and Bazzill cardstock. I used some things from my stash (like the birds that I have had for years!).
This is a closeup of the base. It has the basket part of the balloon filled with valentine goodies. The basket is adhered to the base and adds to the stability of the project.
