Cuttlebug Challenge

Well, here is the forth piece for the Cuttlebug Birthday Challenge which has been going on all througth the month of September. The challenge this week is to make a 'Centrepiece' following on your own theme. My theme has been a little boys party so here is what I made and let me tell you I found this really difficult as I have never made anything like this before. It was quite hard to photograph so have taken two.
I used an empty gravy granule tin which I pierced holes into the lid of and threaded straws through to use as my balloon handles. I hope it fits the challenge OK.
**Just a note for the Cuttlebug team I have now swiss dot embossed the orange centre's of my mini album pages which I couldn't do at the time due to so much pain, if you would like me to re photograph them please let me know.**
