Guest Designer: Kim!

Happy Thursday everyone ~ it's Kim from Scrapin Mom Of One Inspiring Little Boy filling in for Emma while she continues to take care of her family! Sounds like Aaron is still heading in the right direction ~ so continue to pray that Emma and her family can put this ALL behind them real soon!

Starting tomorrow Emma is going to have a "Customer Appreciation Sale"! Yes ~ I said SALE! Save 20% with coupon code:: THANKU! This weekend only! Friday July 20, 2012 ~ July 22, 2012!

I hope to show you all how versatile Emma's products can be used. So for today's card I just had to share with you my rocket ship I created with the My Creative Time June Stamp release (click here) and some other MCT dies. It is VERY unconventional, but I just had this vision when I first saw the hot air balloon! During the release some of the hot air balloons that my fellow design team members created ~ whether it was  the paper they used or how they paper pieced ~ I could see this rocket ship! So I got this CRAZY idea to create one! So I stamped the hot air balloon image on this shiny silver paper. I cut out the middle section of the balloon including the the strings to the basket. Then I looked at my Pocket dies and thought those could be the wings ~ I used two of them. The banner dies could be the flames. But then I was a little stumped for the little window part until I realized the stitched circle die from the Build A Banner Kit would fit PERFECTLY! I know you are all thinking I am out there with this but I think it turned out rather CUTE! My son LOVED it! I tried to make this as masculine as I could minus the bling for stars. I am sending this to my sister's boyfriend who just had an AMAZING opportunity to work with a very well known company! I just want him to know "Reach for the sky ~ The sky is the limit!"

Have a GREAT day!
