Celebrating a New Arrival!

Hello Bloggers! Hope you are all doing well and getting ready to enjoy the weekend.
I wanted to share a project I recently created for one of our Design Team members at Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog. The very talented Lalo Ik recently had a baby boy so the design team decided to create projects to help celebrate the family's new arrival. We are continuing with our challenge theme this month which is using stamps on your project. I decided to FINALLY decorate a 7Gypsies shadow box I have had in my stash for years! I grabbed a My Mind's Eye Lost and Found "Sunshine" 6x6 paper pad, also from my stash, and used some burnt orange and soft blue papers to decorate the shadow box. Here's the finished project ...

 
I stamped the corrugated alpha letters with a script stamp and Wendy Vecchi's "Orange Blossom" Archival ink. I inked all paper edges and the sentiment with the same ink.

 
I wanted to use lots of balloons and did NOT want to hand cut them so I went to Michael's and grabbed a Martha Stewart Balloon punch which saved the day. Punches are expensive but I don't mind the investment if I will use it often.

 
Congratulation Lalo and family and Welcome Little One!! Have a great weekend and I'll be back soon with more craftiness!!
