May 123 Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog today.
I'm here to share a 'happy' layout and one that is 
quiet devoid of my usual mad, bright, background!
But I like it all the same, quiet a refreshing change and it all came together so 
quickly and easily at the recent 'Crop For A Cause' I attended.

This page is for the May challenge at the 123 challenge blog.
The criteria this month being:-

* Our colour = Red
* Our Word = Happy
* Our Technique = Balloons

My balloons are these Flair buttons from A Piece of Cake Designs.
Although this layout is simple compared to some of mine, I did manage to add some texture paste along with a woodgrain stencil from Prima.
I've added Red in the buttons, washi tape border, and stars. 
The word 'Happy' is there on the patterned paper.


I also added some real balloons- well just part of some real balloons!
I cut off the knotted end and added them under these wooden Prima embellishments.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.
