"Balloon" - Susan K Weckesser, Helmar, and some good news

My daughter's first birthday - yup, I'm still scrapping photos.  Hey - it was a big day, LOL!  But I couldn't resist using these whimsical papers with pictures of my little princess.

I added a little bit of stenciling to the background, using Distress Ink.  Dimensional adhesive like Zap Dots can add a little extra oomph to punched shapes, like these clouds:

I used Professional Acid Free glue for all the papers and photos, and 450 Quick Dry for the chunky embellishments. 

I used clear Robin's Nest tear drops and mini-dew drops, and Gemstone Glue was perfect for these tricky-to-glue embellishments.

And now for my news - I've joined the first design team for Susan K Weckesser Inc.  You can see the full announcement Here.  The timing is good, as I've recently finished a couple of commitments, and my term with Ruby Rock-it will be over in a month.  I'm excited to get to work with a Canadian designer - this is something that I've wanted for a long time.  :)
