This month at Auntie Em's we are featuring the Bella Blvd. line called Sunshine & Happiness and using the Pagemaps Calendar. We are using embossing techniques. I found that this collection has alot of bright summery colours too it, in fact in true Bella Blvd. style there are tones of colours, too many really. I wanted to use some photos of my kiddies from last summer's adventures for this layout. I chose to pull out the greens and oranges from the layout. I did some heat embossing with white embossing powder and my Prima "hex net" stamp - oh how I love that stamp, I looked long and hard for it to! I also masked off the edge of one of the patterned papers and inked and embossed the edge with Antique Linen distress ink and clear embossing powder. I dry embossed two styles of polka dots behind each of the photo matings, and clear embossed the orange popsicle as an embellishment. I added some flowers and done done.
