PTI June Blog Hop - Bowl of Sunshine

Hi there friends!  Today's the Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop and I thought I'd play along.  The inspiration for today's hop is the photo below which to me is very sweet with it's old fashioned bed frames and little girl shoes tucked at the ends. 
I wanted to use the new PTI Bowl of Sunshine set that I just received and decided to pick out a few colors from the inspiration photo (colors from the comforter) along with the idea of the overlapping frames for my layout.  I'm hoping I pulled off a little bit of a retro feel between the colors and the Pyrex bowls.  Anyone who grew up in the seventies probably remembers having bowls like these in their kitchen.  In fact since I'm a thrift store junkie I actually have some in my cupboards right now (not this color though).


Supplies: Bowl of Sunshine + dies, Ombre Builders, Bakers Twine, Score board, Foam tape.  Colors: Hawaiian Shores, Cameo Coral, Daffodil Delight.
 
Thank you for visiting and enjoy the hop!

Cute and CLEVER! Your design reminds me of an old time kitchen with open cubbies with the bowls sitting inside! You most definitely pulled off a "retro" feel!!
