Sending Smiles across the Miles

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone! 
 How are ya doing? I hope you had a great weekend and are having a great week so far! We had a pretty good weekend. The weddings were wonderful but we had a little one get sick on us~boo!
Yeah, little Lacy has been sick since Friday and finally feeling better. It is always a bummer when you are away from home but we managed to get through it all.  On a brighter note, Arya had a blast as flower girl and was so stinken cute!

We have the fun  PDE Linky Party going on with the theme being "Sunshine".  It's not my week but I still wanted to join in the fun and use some of these new goodies I have recently purchased from Jaded Blossoms. We would love for you to come join in the challenge...Go HERE for the details :)
Here is my project:
I started with a 5 x 5 card base followed with a base layer in red. The following layer is created using Jaded Blossoms Scallop Square Dies with pattern paper from Echo Park~Fine and Dandy collection.
The fun balloon is stamped with Jaded Blossoms Up, Up and Away stamp set and fussy cut out. I used foam tape for a little dimension and little skittles for a fun look. The sun is from Jaded Blossoms Spring Dies 2 and the face is stamped with PK-1357 Sweet on You stamp set. I added rosy cheeks, freckles and glossy accents.
I finished with a sentiment that is stamped with Up, Up and Away stamp set. The pretty bow cluster is created using crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM and button/twine from my stash. 
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) PDE Linky Party~Sunshine
2.) 3 Girl JAM~August~Anything Goes w/ ribbon
3.) Scrappy Moms Stamps Challenge~Summer Fun
4.) DL.ART August Linky~Anything Goes
5.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
