My Favorite so far...

Hi there! It's me again, Ria Mojica, hosting today's blog post.

I fell in love with U R My Favorite as soon as I laid eyes on them. And so even if we were supposed to be working on another collection, I have to admit that I cheated and sneaked a LO using these papers first :).


This LO I made using photos from my daughter's birthday. One of the games we played was "The Boat Is Sinking" and we thought it was so cute when she held on so tightly to her partner to make sure she stayed in the game.

I love how you can easily use these papers with other colors and that little frog prince is so adorable -- I am saving another sheet for a LO with my own prince -- though definitely not a frog!

And to show you how verstile these papers are, I also used them for a Boy Easter LO. Because the pink is toned down by the neutral colors, it is easy to use these papers for any Spring occasion and yes, boy LO's too!



I also used one of the matching crown chipboard album pages to make my focal point photo stand-out and support the "king" theme of the LO.

Did you also notice the cord brads up top? I'm not much of a button or brad person but find myself using them more on boy LOs. I love how easily and simply it adds texture and dimension to any page.

I also made 2 simple Valentine cards using the matching stamp set and mini paddies.


I think you'll agree that Nikki's papers are getting yummier by the season and we have 6 new lines for you debuting at CHA in a few days with the cutest names:


Check out the site for all the yummy goodies coming soon!!!

That's it for now, and see you again on Feb 21st!

Cheers!
Ria
