Item 2: Picture This

I recently came across a marvelous journal created by a lady named Krissy that has, among other things, themed photo contests. The current contest is for items beginning with or resembling the letter T, and entrants submit photos by posting them in their journals. Always ready to try a new adventure, I offer you, and Krissy, my balloon superhero, "Tomato Man." (Yes, there's a story behind it and, if ever I completely run out of things to write about, I might even tell it sometime to fill space.)

Awesome! I knew you said you did balloon art for a side hobbie for children's parties, however I didn't realize you were this talented. You really have to tell us the story behind Tomato Man now my dear friend. (Hugs) Indigo

How fun is that!  Tomato man, now that has to be some story behind it.  I like the balloon art you did - I'm only good at popping them and scaring myself when it happens. ::sigh::
