:: making a splash ::

Today the Paper Issues Design Team is spotlighting Carta Bella's Beach Day collection and I got to play along. This photograph of my daughter at the splash pad was perfect for this collection!

That zig-zaggy, chevron patterned paper has gotta be my favorite. Such great colors!


I used the machine to stitch along the top of the chevron and then again on the yellow zig-zag part of the way down.


I incorporated items from the ephemera pack around my photo. I also used the cut apart 12x12 paper behind my photo and one of the 3x4 cards fit perfectly with the theme of this LO.


I popped a few of the elements up with pop dots, and tangled thread for more texture and pops of color.

This was a super fun collection to work with and I have a feeling I will be using every little bit of it (I have another LO in progress on my desk right now)!  Grab this collection and anything else you need at the Paper Issues Store -- don't forget to use the code 'orangegearle' for 20% off your purchase!

Thanks for stopping by!  See you soon!
