I am feeling quite proud of myself lately for making an effort to get BEHIND the camera every now and then!  These photos were taken with my self timer!

I used the Family Stories collection from Teresa Collins.  Teresa's lines have the BEST embellishments and always seem to include things that I want to say…love that!

Hope you are getting in your pictures!!!!

Bella Blvd & Kerri Bradford Team Up

I am SO very excited to be part of the Bella Blvd and Kerri Bradford team up!  If you own a die cut machine, you have probably heard of Kerri…she designs the most beautiful shapes!  This past week, some of the Bella Blvd design team members teamed up with Kerri Bradford and I was so lucky to join in on the fun!

Hearts are one of my FAVORITE elements to use on my pages so I immediately fell in love with Kerri's Heart Backgrounds and it paired perfectly with Bella Blvd's Kiss Me collection! I love the look of a touch of patterned paper showing through background paper and Kiss Me has so many fun patterns to mix in! I didn't need to journal on this page since the title "I love you ALWAYS" is exactly what I wanted to say! So many of my smiles truly begin with my sweet girl…she is as funny as she is adorable!

Kiss Me: Flutter, True Love, Just Write Journaling Stickers, Alpha+Bits
Kerri Bradford Studio: 
Heart Backgrounds, February Fourteen

For this layout, I used Kerri's Happy collection. I had fun mixing a few Bella Blvd collections here and happiness is definitely my theme! I am super happy to finally be IN a page…I am not often behind the camera so I am making a concious effort to be in photos with my family! I love the sentiment, "you make me happy when skies are grey" and have often sang this to my girls!

Daily Chevies: Chevy Carrot, Chevy Oreo, Arrows pink; Trick or Treat: Spooky Town; Snapshots: Captions; Ciao Chip Elements: Hearts & Stars; Feathers: White; Button Market: Fruit Punch
