Carta Bella Paper Blog Hop

 


Hi Everyone!
Welcome to the Carta Bella Paper Design Team Blog Hop!  Join our Design Team on their individual designer blogs as they share their current projects using Carta Bella Paper products.  Follow the blog hop list below to hop from one blog to the next.  ONE winner will be selected from each blog to receive a Carta Bella Paper collection kit of their choosing.  To qualify for the drawing, please leave a comment on each corresponding blog.  All comments are due by midnight EDT on Wednesday, February 27th to qualify.  Winners will be announced on each blog on Friday, March 1st, so be sure to check back to see if you won!

My project I'm sharing with you today, is from Carta Bella Paper's collection, True Friends:


This is a great line for not only scrapbooking the little girls in your life; but also the colors to me, say Easter!  I used an old piece of shaped paper to trace onto my green patterned paper and then hand cut that and also white cardstock ( a little larger).  I just added in some stickers, strips of paper, a die cut doily, and flowers.  The butterfly strip was a Memory Box die that I cut out from white cardstock and also cut into my shaped dot paper, so that the white piece fit into the negative piece. 
These are my two great-nieces who took a trip with us through the Rocky Mountains to Vancouver, where they live.  You would never know by their smiling faces, that we were stranded on the highway for something like 10 hours, due to a bad accident right in a place through the mountains where no one could get through on either side.  Lucky for us, there was a small rest spot with a park nearby where we  could get out of our car.  They never complained once about the long wait!  I think my husband never stopped complaining!
Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog for a chance to a Carta Bella Paper Collection!
Contest ends February 28th and winners are announced March 1st.
