Ciao Bella

When Bella Blvd. announced the 2012-2013 DT call, I decided I wouldn't try out.  I had a lot going on with other DT projects and just didn't feel like I had time to do 4 unseen layouts to send in for the call.  But my awesome scrappy friend, Katrina Hunt, said she definitely thought I should try...so I decided to, three days before the call ended!!  :)  Unfortunately, I didn't receive one of the coveted "welcome to the Team" emails last week.  :(  But the good news is, that I did get 4 layouts finished, that I didn't have done to begin with, and DT calls come around again and again, so there's always next year to apply!!  Anyway, I thought I would share my pages with you today, because I think they turned out pretty darn cute!!

"Costumed Cutie" using the Too Cute to Spook collection:



  
"Family Fun" using the Family Dynamix collection:




"Merry Christmas Parade" using the Christmas Wishes collection:



"Silly Sunglasses" using the Sunshine & Happiness collection:



The funny thing is, when I finished all of these, I realized that I pretty much covered most of the Seasons spectrum...Spring, Fall, and Winter!!  I love using Bella products, so these were all really fun pages to create.  I will just have to replenish my Bella stash with new products and wait for next year's call, to try again!!  :)

Where do I even start??? I love Bella Blvd. and you did some AMAZING pages with it! I am loving all the little details... The cute spider on the first one, the little flags on the second one (and fun strips of blue that pop!), The popping out dots on the Christmas page and the stitched lettering, and my oh my the cute dots on the last one! I can't help but smile when I see that page! I have no idea why you didn't make the DT, but you have such a great attitude to try again next year and you have the talent oozing out of you!! LOVE all your pages! SUPER SUPER CUTE!!
