Up & Away!

Good morning LIMettes!
After a week off work, I am back to normal now with the mad rushing around to fit in the Less Is More challenge before I go to work!

So imaging my horror when I saw that this week's challenge is 

I, again, have nothing Stampin' Up! to fit this challenge! I have ummmmed and ahhhed at getting the Up Up & Away set, but as Jen has it, and I can borrow it if I need to, (doesn't help me now though!), I never have got round to getting it!

So some creative thinking again, and some drawing practice, and here is what I made...

Basically, I drew one balloon I was happy with, cut it out, drew round it twice, cut them out, and coloured them in! I had the challenge over at Fab Friday in my mind for the colours as I was going to make something to fit it last night but didn't get round to it!

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banners set that is free as part of the Sale-A-Bration promotion when you spend over £45!
