BB20152016_CreativeTeam_announcement


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.

Thanks for visiting..x

JOT Magazine + One Little Word | Encourage...

Hello Friends! Welcome to 2016!! I'm very excited to back and playing with paper once again! I don't know about you but sometimes during the school holidays, I get completely lost away from paper crafting and spend the time focusing on my family. Our Summer holidays are no exception. And while I enjoy having a mini break from scrapbooking commitments, I really do relish getting back into documenting our family stories.

Today I want to share my One Little Word for 2016.  It has been on my heart for a few weeks now.


Encourage.



I truly want to embrace this concept for 2016.  It is such a powerful word and so very good for the soul.  It is my sincere hope that I can offer encouragement to others, no matter the circumstances; no matter the environment. I want to be able to encourage my family, friends and even strangers. I'm not entirely sure how I will do this yet. But it will come to me.

And I want to be able to encourage myself to step out of my everyday box and brave new endeavours. I've got new adventures in the wind.

But for today I want to encourage my readers to come and play with the Jot Girls and our  fabulous Jot Magazine January mood board.


I pulled a few things from my stash including an alphabet stamp set from Scraptastic Club (sorry not shown in the pic).


And after playing and shuffling, I created this:
