(This post is part of my Onwards and Upwards Blog Event)
I’ve shared quite a few hot-air balloon projects and products this weekend, but in this household we also love a good helium-filled balloon!
Little Miss on her 4th Birthday:
Little Miss on her 5th Bithday:
We had lots of balloons on her 5th birthday – 15 of them! We got one for each child at her birthday party, but then we forgot to give most of them out at the end, so we brought them home and Little Miss had a balloon forest in her bedroom – she loved it!
My son playing with her balloons – he’d been going crazy for them just before I started filming and calmed down when I started, but you get to see a glimpse of his enthusiasm:
And here’s me at my hen weekend a couple of weeks ago, sorry the photo is a bit grainy as it was taken with the front-facing camera on my Iphone:
The waiter in the restaurant gave these to me. And then the next day a shop in town was giving out ballons on a stick so I had to get one and carry it around! Then my sister gave me another helium balloon, a ‘girls night out’ one the next evening. It was a balloon filled weekend!
I don’t know why we like balloons so much. They just make us happy! It was good when my Husband changed jobs and started working in a shop that sells helium-filled balloons – now he gets discount!
To celebrate our love of balloons I made this card:
Featuring papers from my Onwards and Upwards Counterfeit Kit. I stamped a balloon onto several of the papers, cut it out (discarding the stamped string), and attached twine where the string should be. The balloons and sentiment are adhered to the card with pop-dots to tether them down!
Make a bunch of balloons or a cluster of another sky-related embellishment
Use twine to hold something down
Scrapbook about an item you think is fun!
