I was Looking through my pictures and came across a one from this summer.  It's a picture of me and my Little Sis and my Baby Brother.  I came up with a plan right away and the page just came together quickly!!  Which for me is a Big Deal because I probably spend way to much time thinking and staring at my page.  
I've been thinking of quilling lately and had come across a Blog that had scrappers that quilled on their pages. So I knew I wanted to apply my amateur quilling to make balloons for my page!  I'm so glad I did!  

My Sister and I had attended a scrap book convention in Orlando many many years ago. We took a quilling class and both thought it was so cool.  Well it didn't take long for me to move it aside and forget about it. I think I did a total of 2 pages with quilling.  
I used Quill Stix for the little rose on the frame & the balloons and added string to each and tied them to a chipboard tag that says Party! I also used chipboard to the corner of my frame and the title.   Of course I used my Cricut! The cart's I used were George and Basic Shapes and Gypsy Wanderings. My paper is from The Paper Studio "Pink Armadillo" and Bazil.  I used my Provo Craft scissors to cut around the frame. I just had to do some sewing on my page, I used 3 types of stitches !  I have to say this is one of my favorite things to do on a page! The last thing I did was add a little more sparkle to my page! I used glitter glue on my Balloons and around the arrow on my journal !
Hope you like my page as much as I do:)  Love to have comments so please let me know what you think..

Great lo! You rocked with those quilled ballons. I really liked it. Like you, I think quilling adds a lot, but I did maybe one lo with quilling, and I really should be doing more of it.
You did a great job with our sketch and way to go for 3 types of stitches!
Thank you for playing with us at Sketches In Thyme and we hope to see you again.
Happy Holidays.
