You / Bella Blvd Guest Designer

Hey there, and Happy Monday!  I'm back today with another layout that I created for my Guest Design spot over at Bella Blvd last week.  I had so much fun playing with a few of their new collections, and I used the Cute Baby Boy line for this page.  If you follow me, then you know I have two little girls.  I challenged myself to create a girly page using all these fun boy goodies!

I hand cut and punched a bunch of hearts from different patterned papers and messily stitched them down the center.  I wanted them to have they were lightly laying on the layout in random places.  I added some white gesso and blue spray ink to the background to add some "messy" to the page.  I tucked my three pictures in around the edges of the hearts and then added a few more to the right side.

I added some fun texture and detail with my sewing machine here as well as some green tangled thread.  I adore these fun blues, greens and oranges together!  I used a date stamp from my stash on that cute label and added it to the side of the middle picture.

I love how these hearts turned out!  I know they'll flatten out once I put the layout into an album, but they're not going anywhere since I stitched them down.  Creating dimension and depth is so fun!

I used this fun die cut "you" word as my was too perfect not to!

I had so much fun playing with these boy goodies...they really are versatile, though.  Sometimes it's fun to get out of your comfort zone.  Some of my favorite pages are from moments like this!  So challenge yourself!

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back later this week to share my third layout for Bella :)
