Pinterest Inspiration

Happy Saturday!

I have a bit of a secret to share-I applied for the Bella Blvd design Team a few weeks ago.
Although I'm kinda bummed didn't get a spot - I made some LOs that I really REALLY LOVE (I hope it's OK to say that and that I don't sound full of myself-I do make PLENTY of LOs that I don't love and they never see the light of day ;) so I am sharing them.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again  ;)

In the meantime, here are some papers that I have been hoarding (Bella Blvd is another paper line I tend to buy and not use because I am too afraid to cut into it. I wonder if there is a name for that 'almost' phobia ;) ) There should be - I am sure I am not the only one who does this.

I got my title/jounalling from Pinterest.
It reads, 'The thing I love most aboput my home is who I share it with'.
Which is TOTALLY true for me.
I find I never get homesick, if I am travelling with my family.

By the way, if you haven't been to Pinterest, you should check it out.
But you absolutely should NOT check it out if you have an addictive personality (like me).
Seasons can change while are surfing this site, there are simply SO many wonderful ideas, eye-candy, DIY projects, etc.

Most Supplies Bella Blvd EXCEPT:
Cardstock- American Crafts & Bazzill
Mini Alphas - Cosmo Cricket (yellow), Websters (Green)

This next LO is of my sweet Little Man and his Cuz at C-mas Dinner at a local resterant.
Eating C-mas dinner out is always a favourite of mine (we do it every other year). It's a wee bit on the expensive side BUT no one has to slave in a hot kitchen all day, no one has to clean up for hours aftyerward and we really take our time and enjoy the process, usually 2-3 hours. Last year, the boys brought new toys and were wonderfully quiet and well behaved (which is not always the case- they SO have a tendancy to make each other just WILD at family gatherings.)

This LO is also all Bella Blvd EXCEPT:
Cardstock-American Crafts & Bazzill, Tags-Creative Cafe,
Journalling tag-Heidi Swapp, Felt alphas-Prima

Thanks for stopping by!
I will have a few new American Crafts projects to share next week.

I hope you have a happy & peaceful weekend.
