Hi Everyone! We are back after a long weekend camping adventure and I can't wait to scrap some of the photos that were taken! The weather here is finally warming up but let me tell you, the nights are still freezing, especially when you go camping without extra blankets! *grin*
Today I wanted to share with you my layout that is up on the Bella Blvd blog. Bella has some new features planned for the month to help kick start your creativity. Today is the Monday Morning Challenge - focus on the square. My Inspiration? The humble Instagram square...

I love Instagram for sharing my photos with family and friends and I especially love that I can share my children's artwork online without having to email each item separately, to each individual grandparent!
This layout is inspired by the Instagram process and documents my son's favourite piece of artwork to date. I have included hidden journaling beneath the main photo, but to find the story you need to follow the arrows!
The main photo flips open to reveal the journaling. The flap works simply, by placing designer tape along the joining edge. You could also just have an extended piece of patterned paper and fold it in half, but I wanted to use two different paper patterns. *grin*
The "Art Instagram" label/title has been created by trimming down one of the All American: Just Write Journaling Stickers, to fit my size page. I've fussy cut the heart image from the All American: Borders & Cute Cuts patterned paper and added alpha stickers as the finishing touch.
Finally, since the focus of my story is Ethan's Solar System/Planet Earth artwork, I finished off the page by adding a die cut globe. Yep. I know it's not square! LOL! But I love that it has Australia on it and it makes the embellishment a little more personal for me.
I hope you will join us over at the Bella blog to see some more of the design team's challenge entries. Thanks so much for visiting..x
