Playing in Paradise #88

Happy Friday one and all, did you have a good week. Mine was shortened at work which I will never complain about :). 

It is time for a new Playing in Paradise challenge from Scrapbooker's Paradise. Angela is encouraging us to use repetition or echoing. Play along and you might win the weekly prize...

I did not have far to look for my new 8x8 Cosmo Cricket paper pad, it has been sitting on the edge of my desk encouraging me to create all week.
I decided to make sure I covered all the bases, I used muliple sentiment flags and mixed the sizes up a little. I used balloon die cuts with patterned paper then popped them up with foam tape. I have the twine held in place with little spots of glue.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Cosmo Cricket, Hot off the Press-Mix your Messages, The stamps of Life - balloons2cut, misc twine.
Be sure to stop by the Scrapbooker's Paradise Pondering blog to take a look at all the great projects that the Challenge team have come up with.
**Reminder** join it the challenge, there are great prizes each and every week.**
