Facebook Balloon Challenge Complete!!

Hello, all!

I asked my Facebook Fans, a few months ago, for balloons that they want to see me create. From that list I had a poll out on Facebook to determine the winner. The Buzz Lightyear parody balloon won by just one vote. Since we are in the midst of opening weekend for Toy Story 3, I thought it would be a fitting time to create this challenge request.

I sat down with my daughter's Buzz Lightyear from the original movie and began to work. I did not use designs from other artists or any pictures - just her doll. As you can see in the picture below, it doesn't take me just one try to get it right - here are the ones that did not "make the grade" but each one had a role in the creative process.

For those who might think I have a fancy setup, I thought I would include a picture of my favorite work space... THE FLOOR! : ) By the time I am finished working, the floor is usually a crazy mess. Below is a picture of today's outcome.

After some trials and tests, the final results came out well.

My daughter enjoyed posing with the astronaut and wanted to upstage him.

Below she made him fly. : )
Once I finished this larger model of the astronaut, I decided to make Don Caldwell's Little Wrist Friends version. If you see me at a party or restaurant - THIS is the version you may see.

My model was up for ONE more picture...

I hope that you all enjoyed the pictures! Do not forget to enter in June's drawing for $40 in local Red Robin Gift Cards.

Happy Father's Day to the dads out there. We are celebrating by seeing "Toy Story 3!"

I am off to clean up the floor. : )

Happily Twisting Balloons,
