Girl); Chipboard Icons (Sunshine & Happiness);

To complete this challenge I wanted to use the
great colors and patterns of the Bella Blvd
Designer Tapes to create a striped frame
around my photo. I layered the tape on
vellum and mounted it on white cardstock
to help the colored strips stand out in the
forefront of the layout, along with the photo
and embellishments

Bella Materials Used: Miles of Smiles, Party Dress,
Borders, Cute Cuts, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Just Write
Journaling Stickers (Birthday Girl); About A Boy,
Toadilly Cool, Eat Cake, Borders, Alpha+Bits Stickers
(Birthday Boy); Hot Pink Flowers, Masculine Mix (Button
Market); Teal Stripe, Yellow Chevron, Gulf Dot, Pickle
Juice Chevron, Punch Chevron (Designer Tapes).
Combining the Birthday Boy & Birthday Girl
collections created the perfect bright rainbow
of colors that I wanted for my “wishing” layout.
I love that between both sets of the Alpha+Bits
Sticker sheets I was able to spell “wishy” using
the little banner stickers. That is exactly how
Ella says it as she is reeling in her fishing line.
“Here wishy, wishy.” Such a fun memory that
I really want to remember forever!
