Some Interactive Fun

Welcome to Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #14.  This week is our Scrapbooking challenge and we are having Some Interactive Fun!  We have created scrapbook pages in any theme that include something on it that moves or is interactive!  Here is what I created for your Interactive Fun inspiration?

I used a kit and sketch from Artful Delights. 
  
Can you see my Interactive Fun?  

It is the hot air balloon!  Notice it is in a different position!

It moves up and down the bakers twine line!

Up, up and away!! 

I'm sure there were many different ways to get it to move but this is the mechanism my crazy brain came up with in the wee hours of the night!

 This is what I had after stringing up my twine to the buttons!  I used Glue Dots to get a strong hold between the buttons and the page.  I don't want my hot air balloon to float off...hehe!

I added some stickles to my chipboard embellies to make them sparkle and used a Sweet Sentiments Set #2 stamp from My Craft Spot to add some fun!  I  stitched a border around the outside with my machine and faux stitched the circle. 

Some last minute additions, ribbon accents to the tag and some buttons in the corner.  I didn't journal on this page because it is going into a book filled with pics of this day.  No need to journal every one of them!

  • Stampin' Up!
    • Crumb Cake Textured Cardstock

Amber, this is SO adorable! (Your creative mind must crank out ideas 24/7!) The LO itself is fabulous... the clouds and the green are such lovely backdrops, and you know I love the sparkles. The hot air balloon is so crazy cute, especially as an interactive element! I'd love it anyway, but it's even more fabulous due to the picture! Gorgeous work, my friend!

Hugs and blessings! :o)
