Bella Blvd | Pinterest Inspiration..

Hello Friends.  I am doing a little scrapbook house keeping today and catching up with some Bella Blvd.
 
 

This month I was challenged to use an image of leaves, as a source of Pinspiration for my layout.




I fell in love with the ombre colours and of course had to use leaves on my page as well.  I mixed it up with a selection Bella collections, all of which work and coordinate so well together...


 "Happy Camper"
 
products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Bella Blvd; alpha - Bella Blvd; other - Bella Blvd: chipboard, stickers; studio calico mist; tools - Fancy That Dies (leaves), typewriter.




One of my boys' favourite activities when camping, is to run through piles of leaves as they go crashing through the bush.  This always worries me though, because of the high number of deadly snakes and spiders (wherever we go camping) that could be lurking beneath the leaf litter!  My only consolation is that these boys they make so.much.noise. that any creature, deadly or otherwise, will disappear well in advance of my boys getting near them!  Fingers crossed anyway!
 
If you would like to see how some of the other DT members were inspired by this same image, please visit Bella Blvd here.  Thanks so much for visiting ..x

While I am doing some house keeping, I thought I would share this awesome free printable created by Stephanie,  owner & creator of Bella Blvd.
 
 
 
She had such a huge response to her first Thanks Giving giveaway in 2011, that she wanted to do it all again, with an updated version!  Stay tuned to her blog in the coming days, because you will be able to download the new version for FREE.  Check out the 2011 version here.  It really is super cute!
