it's coming....stay tuned!

new bella blvd

i was thrilled when stephanie asked me to create some projects for the bella blvd booth at cha.  here are some of my projects...

one from sunny happy skies. love the colors in this collection.

here's one from the socialite line. love the purple and the new year's theme!

this one is from the midterm collection. i love how it's geared towards teenagers, but can still be used for elementary school students. very cool!

and from the hello beautiful collection...

and one fall day!

the colors in these collections are so fun and the patterns are so versatile! definitely go check out the bella blvd blog to see a glimpse of the booth at cha and check out all the new collections!
