Introducing "Just Because" with Rhonda!

Happy Saturday Quick Quotes friends!  Rhonda here today to host the blog.

Does it feel like Saturday to you with the holiday mid-week?  Here on the blog, we're really celebrating a bit with sneak peeks of our all new releases!!!  I'm have a page to share with you that I created using the new collection called "Just Because".

The collection is whimsical and has some of my all time favorite colors and patterns in it!  I really think you're going to be in love with it too!  When I started looking through my photos it was around Father's Day and I came across this one of my hubby holding our boys when they were little.  The colors were such a wonderful match and I adore the expression that he has holding his boys!

Daddy's Boyz (12x12 page)

I started with my blue wavy background, matted with some brown cardstock, then added some circle die cuts.  The larger is a Spellbinders Grand Circle, the smaller is a Memory Box.  I inked my chipboard gear with Tahiti PowderPuff Chalk Ink, Mango Mai Tai and some Mocha Mama.

The tree is a die cut from white cardstock that I inked with Mocha Mama, Green with Envy and Mango Mai Tai to coordinate.  My photo was matted into a large lattice die cut.

I created my tag pocket with a Jillian Vance Designs for Spellbinders die and tucked in a Core'dinations tag.  That sunburst paper is so  fabulous, it's one of my favorites besides the blues!!!  My sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Vellum Quotes - Babies, Kids, Family.  I added a rub-on "Z" letter to the end of "BOY" so it would work for the page.

To anchor my design a banner strip was added.  The flash of dark orange is a cut piece of the sunburst paper, angled to piece into the strip.  The Magic Mesh tape was added for a bit of texture behind.  The chipboard stars are from the Just Jackson Glitter Diecuts.  My zig zag was cut using my Silhouette.
