Bella Blvd | Design Team Dream!

Hello lovely friends! I wanted to pop into my poor little blog and share my exciting news! Bella Blvd kindly invited me back for another term and I cannot express how excited and grateful I am for this continued experience!


I love Bella. I truly do! I think I must be sort of like furniture there even though I am an entire ocean away from everyone else ... or I used to be until my dear friend Gail joined the team for this term as well! Yay! In fact, have you looked at the announcement above??! Holy Cow!!! The talent included is amazing + me! LOL!  the whole team. yep. I'm dreaming!

Anyway.. Here's a little sample of what I got creative with for the intro post over at Bella Blvd today.

"Bucket List"

products used: cs - American Crafts; PP - Bella Blvd: Let's Go & Molly; alpha - Bella Blvd tiny text; embellishment - Bella Blvd: Let's Go paper pieces, enamel hearts, stickers, cute clips. other - paint; tools - typewriter.

Yeah. At 6 years of age, this boy has a bucket list for travel! And it is in a specific order too!

1. Africa (to see the wild elephants)
2. China (because it's where his adoptive cousin was born)
3. Tasmania! (because.. why not travel to the southern part of Australia!)

Thank you so much for visiting. Please find the time to pop on over to the BB blog all this week to see the new team in action. I, once again, cannot wait..x

Bella Blvd | So Lucky...

Hi there friends! Today I want to share my inspiration layout that's up on the Bella Blvd blog today! The design team were given an image of a shamrock/four-leaf clover and I literally transferred the patchwork idea & shape, directly to my layout!

"So Lucky"

products used: cs - American Crafts; pp - Bella Blvd; alpha - Bella Blvd; other - Bella Blvd: enamel hearts, chipboard; paint, embroidery floss; tools - typewriter, silhouette portrait.

This story documents a tiny snippet of friendship between these two rascals! I love them both to pieces, my youngest son and his bestie, but boy... they can get into mischief! LOL! And to look at them, you'd think they were the most innocent creatures on this earth! HA! Don't. be. fooled. *wink*

Anyway, if you'd like to see more on how this layout was created and the more subtle ways this Pinterest photo inspired me, head on over to the Bella Blvd blog.  I'd love to see you there.
