Good morning, everyone! Wanted to pop in here this morning to share my take on mixing collections for a cold weather layout that was on the Bella Blvd blog yesterday.
We don't really get snow where we are (the desert) and we usually don't even get much rain. Whenever it does rain, my little one gets really excited. On this particular day, it was very cold outside and started raining. Everyone was pretty miserable...except for her! She was trying to catch raindrops on her tongue! Her behavior was so joyous and fun.
I decided to highlight that fact...and do something that also coordinated with her jacket. I combined the new Squeeze the Day collection with the older Illustrated Faith collection, You are Loved. The two complement each other so well! I created my own cut file, painted a rainbow on top and backed it with the black paper from the Bella Besties collection. I then added minimal embellishments from the Squeeze the Day collection. Here's what I whipped up:
Thanks for stopping in today!
