OCC - Bluebell Bittybloom


It's Saturday morning and that means it's time for this week's Our Creative Corner Challenge! This week's challenge was provided by Jennifer Meyer and she challenged us to use only 2 shades of blue and one neutral colour! Gasp! I had to admit that I struggled with this one a little...ok...maybe a lot! It was way harder than I thought to just stick to two blues, especially because kiwi kiss would have looked fabulous with her blouse! lol



I got a chance to play with my new cute little Bluebell Bittyblossom Bella in her shades of blue :) I would have to thank my biggest enabler Angela for this purchase! Not only does she tell me constantly about all their newest releases and how much she loves them, she offers to add my goodies to her order as well - what a gal! So thank you Angela and yes I would like to add more Bella's to your next order ;P



Bluebell looks so adorable all popped up! She was so much fun to colour too :) Anyhoo, enough about that and onto the challenge! We would like to invite you to play along with us and use the keyword OCCC when you are uploading it to your gallery so that we can take a peek too :) - That's the best part :) Be sure to stop by and see the OCC Girl's creations and say hello to our guest designer Julia Aston!



And just a little blog candy reminder before I go. If you haven't already, you can enter to win the goodies on this post. I will be drawing the winner on January 12th :)

This is so adorable. My mom's nick name for me was Bluebell. Here in Texas we have the famous Bluebell ice cream. My mom has been dead now for three years - she lived in Victoria - and when I spotted this card it nearly made me cry. Beautiful job....
