"This is Bliss' Layout ~ Scrap Our Stash Book Inspired Stash Challenge

On the blog again today sharing a layout I created inspired by the 
January "Book Cover" Inspired Stash Challenge at
I completed my layout using the Fancy Pants "Happy Place" Page Kit included in 
January Flavor of the Month Kit
and the 
January Embellsihment Kit
I was so excited when my niece posted photos of her and my sister that no only matched the colors in this awesome collection.
And to top it off, the collection was also perfect for the inspiration in the book cover.

The challenge that inspired this page:
I was inspired by the following:
Black & White (cat)
Stripes (hat)
Colors (red & blue)
To complete the requirement of the challenge, I added white paint splatters!
