Saturday Challenge #125 at the Drunken Stampers

Wow another week has flown by….why do they seem to go faster the older you get? The challenges at the Drunken Stampers are all about movies, some I have seen some I haven’t a clue about, this one was no exception so I googled it. The movie is UP, it is an animated film but I never saw it. I came up with an idea for the challenge and here is the finished project.
Of course I used one of my favourite critters, a house mouse hanging on to a balloon. I paper pieced the balloon with some patterned paper from a DCWV stack pack. Mounted it on blue cardstock embossed with a cloud embossing folder. I stamped and cut out a second mouse and attached on top to give dimension  Live, Laugh and Love are metal ovals, I love that saying and the laugh was appropriate for a funny movie.
