CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Entry - Up! Up! And Away!

Hello crafty friends! I just wanted to share a quick little post for CAS-ual Friday's Challenge using glue dots
( loved this challenge! ).  And be on the look out I have been fairly crafty around here lately, but most of the things I've made are gifts for others that I can't share so as not to ruin the surprise for them, so soon I will be able to post these projects!  Without further delay...

What are these pretty little balloon baskets made with?  Glue Dots!!!  I love this idea and I have no idea why I have not thought to do this before!  You simply put the glue dot on, manipulate it to the shape you want and then add glitter!  Viola!
Paper : echo park
Stamps: balloons - JoAnn's dollar section, and sentiment from Clear Stamps by Paper Studio
Watercolor Colored Pencils
Glue Dots
Glitter : Martha Stewart
Memories Dye Inkpad : black

As a crafter if you do not own Glue Dots you need to jump out there and buy some now, because I use them on almost everything!  I love how strong they are and the different sizes they come in, they are great for sticking buttons on things, ribbon, and various other materials.  I also plan on trying a new technique using wet embossing with them, so be on the look out for that soon!  Thanks so much, and please go to CAS-ual Fridays to check out what others have created for this fun challenge!
Happy Crafting!
