Hey there! It's been awhile. I'm happy to see you =)
These last few months have been the busiest craziest most stress filled months. But there's light at the end of the tunnel. It won't be slow, but it will be slower. And that my friends, is the pace I need. So thank you, to anyone who has stuck it out with me.
Finally, I have time to scrapbook! I've been missing my paper crafting time. And completely neglecting my sweet lil blog. Not even checking my e-mails really. So much so, I nearly missed out on a completely fabulous opportunity!
The lovely Jen Gallacher e-mailed to ask if I wanted to play with Carta Bella's latest line, Wildflower by Kaitlin Sheaffer. Just look at the gorgeousness, how could I not want to dive in inky fingers first?! It took all of two seconds of reading her e-mail, for me to respond as enthusiastically as possible begging to play!
I was so excited to see it in person. I loved their last collection, Hello Again, so much I think I reviewed every sheet of it on Two Peas =) Because what you can't tell from these photos, is that it's printed on this lovely textured cardstock. It looks like watercolor paper to me. And that, my friends, makes it that much dreamier in person.
And the colors! I love the color scheme. It's quirky, pink and coral, teals and periwinkle, touches of gold. Can we pause for a second to talk about that periwinkle? It's PERIWINKLE, true and simple. It isn't a color I've seen used very much in scrapbook and I'm absolutely loving it.
The line has this great outdoorsy/bohemian feel to it. It makes me think of Colorado when I see it. And while I don't have any Colorado photos to scrap about, I did manage to create three pages and eight cards with this feast of fabulousness.

Hello Baby Girl CardsI'm writing up separate blog posts to share each project with you, so expect that later and maybe even through out the week. But in case you can't tell from these pages, I had a lot of fun with this collection!
I've had fun. I think you'll have fun with it as well. The awesome Carta Bella team have been so generous to share the collection with me. And they're even more generous because they're letting me share a collection kit with one of you!
To enter to win this brand new collection, just leave a comment below (or on one of the subsequent project posts) and be sure to include an e-mail where I can get ahold of you. That's it! I'm leaving this open until 10:59 CST Thursday, November 7. I'll try to announce the winner that night or first thing Friday morning.
Best of luck! And I'll see you again in a bit
cheers & besos,
