I printed an additional image and colored and cut the balloons to give it a little POP! I bought these papers at the Great American Scrapbook Convention a few weeks ago and they were absolutely perfect for the color challenge! And of course they are a 6" by 6" pad and you know how obsessed I am with them :)
I hope this one brings you a smile and we'd love to see you playing over at Cooking It Up With Katie this week.
