Wedding Day - Bella Blvd

Hi ya;ll I had a project for Bella Blvd go up on Tuesday featuring Project Life, Bella Style.  While I don't do Project Life a lot I do love the style of it.  So I chose to stick with the 3x4 grid pattern with this layout.  I really loved the Love and Marriage and Engaged At Last collections.  The color palette is great.

The swirly flowers are from a die set I picked up at Papertry Ink called Scribbles. Thanks to Danielle Flanders and her amazing work for that enabling! 

This layout in particular was my favorite from that release.  Stop by Danielle's blog here to see the projects she created that day.  Main link above to follow her blog.

Perfectly Content - Teresa Collins

I am not sure when it happened, but I have fallen hard for all the new Teresa Collins lines.  Her newest is no exception.  Something Wonderful is totally to die for.  The color combination is perfection imo!  I used photos of Parker on Easter destroying her Easter Basket.

I also used another Kerri Bradford cut file.  I am totally addicted.  If you are too she gives away a free file every Friday!  Here is this past weeks file.  ----> Click

Hello Sunshine, I've missed you!

Bill took Parker and Tori out for a Daddy Daughters day and I got to scrapbook.  For myself, for no reason at all.  IT WAS AWESOME.  I have so many collections sitting here that I have yet to touch because I have been too busy.  I pulled out Pink Paislee's Hello Sunshine and went to town. 

I am really in love with the embellishments for this line.  I don't need fancy stuff, chipboard and die-cuts will do for sure.  You also get a TON in a pack.  YAY! 

I managed to get two layouts done with the minimal paper I bought.  I am not a huge paper buyer believe it or not!  I seem to buy every embellishment though.  

I really love this layout.  The colors of this line are so bright.  

You can still pick up bits Hello Sunshine in the Paper Issues Shop HERE.  Use my code on the sidebar and save 20% off your order.

Hey Ya'll!  Lots of you have asked were the bows Parker always wears are from, so I am letting you in on the secret! I got them from Bethany Lane.  Bethany Lane is a new company founded by some friends from the Scrapbooking Community.  They asked if I would like to share some of my favorite things from time to time. Of course I said sure and Parker got a package last week with two Vintage Camera Necklaces.  This girl and her accessories lately. OY VEY.  She is all about it!  She was smitten to get a new necklace.  I asked her if we could go take some pictures outside and she had to have her pony and her bows to match.  She even let me wear the other necklace.  Thanks girl.

Sunkissed Slugger with Bella Blvd

 Hi everyone! A little slow on the blog this week as is the way sometimes.  Last week I was up on the Bella Blvd blog for What's New Wednesday.  I shared a layout I created using the new Summer Squeeze line.  This photo of Parker still makes me so happy.  She loves her T-Ball set so much.  

I have another layout to share!  Not a favorite of mine.  I actually made it for something and changed my mind and re-did it.  I figured I would still share it.  Am I the only one who will trash a layout they don't like? Anyway I used the new Scattered Sprinkles and Classic Calendars for this one.  I am not sure what it is that I don't like.  Maybe the isn't my thing.  Enough of that, enjoy the rest if your week!
