Ciao Bella | First Bella Blvd Post

Ciao & Welcome!!! Today is my first day on the Bella Blvd Blog as one of their Ongoing Guest Designers!  I had so much fun playing with the goodies they sent to me that I ended up creating three layouts to share using some of their newest collections.  First up is a layout using their fabulous new Kiss Me Collection.  I love the color combo so very much and the patterns are fantastic as always!  The other thing I love about this collection is its versatility. It's not just for Valentines Day. It is perfect for Everyday!!!  This first layout is of my niece and when I saw this collection I knew it would be the perfect match for this photo.  I had been holding onto this photo waiting patiently for the "perfect" papers and they finally arrived with the Kiss Me collection!!!

My next two layouts were created using the Thankful Collection.  This collection made my heart sing because of the color combination.  I love orange, yellow and green and this collection as plenty of that along with some blue, red and even pink!!!  I had fun incorporating a variety of patterned papers on this layout and it was easy to do by creating strips and cutting them into banners to create the background. And yes, those pies are mom's pie crust is the best!!!

And aren't the Bella Flags awesome?!  I love the little touch they add to a layout!

Do you notice anything here?  Something a little different that I used as an embellishment? I am not going to tell, but if you guess correctly you get a cookie!!! LOL!!!

Last but not least, is this layout of my niece from last Thanksgiving.  She can be such a turkey some times and she was all about putting on a show for me as she was eating her pumpkin pie.  Probably because she knew I was taking photos!  Anyway, they were a perfect match for that cute little turkey on the Borders & Cute Cuts papers. I created a pie chart piece to "frame" the silliest photo of her and to allow me to incorporate a few more pieces of patterned paper into the layout. 

I am so happy you stopped by today!
