Carta Bella - What an honor! and a Giveaway!! :)

Seriously...I am so thrilled to be joining the Carta Bella design team.  Designing with Carta Bella's awesome products is such an honor.  I really love the texture and quality of their papers.  Come on over to Carta Bella's blog for my interview questions:  Carta Bella blog!

I am showing off the Rough & Tumble collection with my first page showcased:


I just love the fun colors in this collection which are so perfect for all my summer photos.  The chipboard accents in the collection are pure fun and add a lot of movement to your pages.

On this closeup of the top of the page, you can see how I added banners, planes, boats, and stickers!  A little movement was also added with the slope that I cut  with the patterned paper edges.

I also love to add embellishments to my photos to make the eye move through the page more.  The stickers in the Rough & Tumble collection are perfect for titles, journaling, or just added extras to your page.

How would you like a chance to win some of the fabulous Carta Bella products?
