Guest Designer for Trendy Twine

To enter my "Blogaversary Giveaway," please click here.

Hello my crafty friends, today I am very excited to have the opportunity to be a guest designer over at Trendy Twine.  I am even more excited to be a member of this fabulous Design Team beginning in July, however, I agreed to be a guest designer long before I even applied for the Design Team.
I created this two page 12x12 layout to showcase the Blue Berry Trendy Twine.  This twine is a twist of dark blue, light blue and white and is so beautiful as an embellishment on paper crafts.
This layout was created using the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge for all of the die cuts.
I popped up this bouquet of balloons on foam dots for added dimension and outlined the balloons with some twine.  The strings were then tied together with a little bow.
The twine was also used for the balloon strings on the layout and on top of the presents.
The flags were cut by hand and stamped with sentiments from the Scrappy Moms "Mini Messages" stamp set.  For the larger flag, I simply stamped "Happy Birthday" three times to create a banner at the bottom of the layout.
Also, remember Trendy Twine has another fun challenge with the "You Make Our Hearts Flutter" theme. To enter the challenge you will need to create a project incorporating a bird or butterfly, 3 buttons, and some Trendy Twine.  The winner will receive 50 yards of Blue Berry Trendy Twine.  Thanks for stopping by I will be back over at Trendy Twine as a guest designer next week too.
