Reina Oshiro
"Hi, this is Reina.
I am happy to have the invitation for Guest Designer of January, 2017.

I am living in Osaka, Japan together with 2 children, a daughter, a boy and my gentle husband.
My hobby called "Scrapbooking" which I met under the time of a child care, become a part of my life.
The subject of my crop is always the daily happenings of my children and their growth.

I am enjoyed to receive inspiration from your theme.
And also, hope to get the feeling of inspiration from my layout.

Thanking you and best regards

Check out the amazing layout Reina created inspired by the 
Reina shared this with us about her layout and the challenge:
"Three items are used from left-inclined top to right-inclined bottom.

Mist is applied over the whole of layout.
The color of Tropicana teal and Mustard are used.

2.Winter theme
In my home town, Osaka , seldom snow as much as building a snowman.
At the time of going to the north area, children begin to make s snow ball, due to unusual volume of snowing.

3.The color blue
The whole can be unified to the blue tone for conforming blue-color of son's clothes."

Inspired by Reina's beautiful layout and/or our challenge? 
 We would love to see what you create based on this challenge!
You have until January 29th to link up your entries!

Thank you for stopping by and return tomorrow to meet our first 
designer for this term and to see the wonderful inspiration she created 
to share with you, inspired by our January Tic Tac Toe Stash Challenge.
