New Jillibean Soup (and it's STILL winter..*sigh*)

Just when I thought spring was around the corner, it's supposed to be a high of 26 on Wednesday.  Brrrrr....
I have a TON of winter photos, and although a lot of newer releases are kinda spring-like, it doesn't mean they can be used for snowy scenes!  I used the bright and fun Pinkfresh Studio Up in the Clouds collection for this page.  The pinks in the collection went perfect with the color of my daughter's jacket.

On the bottom of the page, I used one of the new "Invisibles" from Bella Blvd (hopefully arriving this week).  I stitched it closed and left a little opening to add some snowflakes and sequins to the inside.  I also used a few circle punched pieces of paper.

I added a few more circles, and then cut the triangle shapes from the paper below to make it look like icicles.

************Store News*************

NEW Jillibean Soup is in the store!!!  

Saffron Yellow- This collection is a bit different for Jillibean in that it has white backgrounds (instead of cream) and black paper, too (instead of brown)!  I LOVE the patterns in this line!
