Good morning! Today I sent my son off to high school. How did that happen?? It really seems just like yesterday that he was just learning to read...and now he's a freshman? Sigh... It was too dark when he left this morning to get a good photo, but I informed him that both He and Ali will be posing for pictures this weekend! So I will share some soon... :-)
For this week's Bella trend challenge, we were to create some cards featuring confetti. It seems that confetti is very popular in the scrapbooking/stamping world at the moment and I found this challenge to be SO fun!
Here's what I came up with...
For this card, I took the confetti theme and ran with it! I started by cutting some circles out of the Snapshots background paper with my Silhouette Cameo and then backing it with a coordinating cardstock color. After layering on a piece of coordinating patterned paper, some new Snapshots Paper Pieces (that I added some chunky glitter to), and a heart sticker (from the new Snapshots Captions sheet) I sprinkled on some white sequins.
I couldn't help myself...when I first saw the confetti theme for this week, I immediately thought of the Trick or Treat collection! I couldn't wait to splatter some stars over some of the super cute Trick or Treat papers! And because I think confetti and glitter go together, I added some sparkly black glitter around the edges of the Daily Detail that I chose for the focal image. For the sentiment, I popped up a sticker from the Trick or Treat Captions.
Now, I have some fun news to share with you! Bella BLVD is having their annual Design Team Call!
