See??? I TOLD Ya!!

FINALLY!! SUCCESS!! TA-DA!! My darling daughter had a FEW brief minutes to help me get this tutorial filmed ... and I have to apologize for the funky lighting ... it was late, so we had to just do it with no natural light. AND the back of my head keeps creepin' its way into the video ... the price one pays for FREE labor (thanks, Amelia!!). It's really kind of a lame "trick" ... but it DID make cutting out nearly 50 of the balloons from "Up, Up & Away" a bit more bearable ... (good thing I had another balloon card in my arsenal to share with ya!!)

Whaddya mean "Not super cool"??? That's freakin' awesome. I hate cutting those balloons out. I can never get an even edge all the way around. This makes me happier than it should...
