Up and Away!

Pig Balloon by Chicken Girl Designs available at i {heart} papers

Kate, at i {heart} papers, is "Up and Away!" at CHA these part few days and has some great sales going on here to make room for the fun new stuff she is bringing back!

I made this for Bev's F4A23: Side-Swiped, Cindy's DTGD Challenge, Kelly's DTGD Challenge and Deb's DTGD Challenge at SCS.

I paper-pieced the balloon and the pig's scarf with some retired SU! DP from my stash.

My Pig Balloon is a digital image by Chicken Girl Design Stamps, along with Copics and Heavyweight Cardstock available at i {heart} papers!

Thanks for stopping by!  I have had a wonderful week enjoying my son and his fiance.  They have been here since Monday night, and are leaving in the morning.  I am taking them to the zoo in Omaha first and then to their flight.  Sadness!  Next time I see them will be wedding week!  If you didn't see the proposal pictures, click HERE.

On a side note, can anyone tell me why my Blogger posts from other days disappeared?  I have in my settings to show 30 days at a time, and it always has until this week.  It still says 30 days in my settings and I have no idea where they went!  Suggestions?
