C.S.I. Case File #12

I was SO inspired by this case file as soon as I saw it! I just LOVE the gorgeous monochromatic color scheme, and was immediately inspired by the balloon paper that I printed from the site. I also printed the banners and journaling tag, which is hidden behind the photo of my adorable son when he was just 2 months old.

Here's a look at the case file and how I approached it.

*hot-air balloon image - I cut my balloon with my Cricut (Summer in Paris cartridge) and  hand stitched the netting with beads.
*something fluffy -I used white yarn around the border.
*stars -I made the background paper from white cardstock, masking stars, sprayed with Glimmer Mists, in Bahama Blue and Snowy Pine.

*use string on your journaling spot - I machine stitched around the journaling. 
*I used the inpsirational word magic,  using magical in my journaling seen here.

Here's a close-up of the balloon.

Thanks for looking!
