Good Times - Imaginisce Inspiration

Hello blogging friends! I have an Imaginisce layout to share today. This one features my niece and nephew, Bailey and Sawyer. This week Imaginisce is focusing on re-purposing a paper collection for an everyday uses. I am using the Perfect Vacation papers. I just love how bright and cheery this collection is. It was so easy to use this collection with everyday snapshots.

I found this awesome sketch at Pagemaps and just had to use it... I was in love with that hot air balloon.

Here are some close-ups. I found this fabulous balloon by Rivka Wilkins in the Silhouette store. The #SMILE is from Creative Embellishments. AWESOME chipboard and more! Seriously, check out their website (Everything is 25% off right now too!).  I also use a new Tim Holtz ray stencil with some distress ink applied with a dauber and just love how it turned out....

Bright cheery colors and those balloons! The twist in this challenge was to use four of the following  (I highlighted the ones I used) ...
Straws/rolled paper
trims- ribbon, lace, bakers twine or hemp
enamel dots or buttons
Texture paste, gesso 
A handmade flower
embossing- dry or heat
Bling- Rhinestones or pearls
A flourish
