Wow, ten days since my last post, where does the time go? I've been so busy lately getting the yard ready for summer, catching up on housework and working, that I haven't had much spare time to post. And now, in addition to everything else, I can add that I am the new "Special Projects Coordinator" for Bella Blvd! So far I haven't done much. I'm currently working on the next Bella Artista submissions. So, if you are interested in becoming a guest Artista, check out the Bella Blog for all the details. I'm so looking forward to this new venture, and want to thank Stephanie for giving me this opportunity!

I'm Soooo Excited!!

The past couple weeks I've been privileged to get a few sneak-peeks at the new Bella Blvd. lines which will be released this July at summer CHA in Orlando. I'm so excited for Stephanie and her growing new company. The new lines are absolutely fabulous and I can't wait to get my grubby little paws on them and start creating. I'm so fortunate to be a small part of this wonderful company and even more blessed to have Stephanie as a special friend! I'm so proud of you, Stephanie!!

How Cute is "Luke"?

I really don't consider myself a dog person. Not that I don't like dogs (or any other animal for that matter), it's just all the rest that comes along with them. They seem like more work than a child. Well, if anything can change my mind, it would be this little adorable Boxer puppy that our friend picked up last weekend. He's 7 weeks old and just about the cutest little thing I've ever seen. I know he's a newborn, but he is such a little cuddler and snuggler. I just love him. I wish there was a such thing as a mini-boxer. I would definately consider adding one to our family.

Check out little Luke Skywalker...Luke, for short

This is the 5th week of 'My Evolution of Scrapbooking'. Here are some the the techniques I used approximately 4 years ago.
Metal and wire was a pretty big thing. I liked the metal look, but I think just as other things and new trends, they tend to be overdone at times. This is a layout of my adorable little nephew, Evan when he was a couple months old. He used to make the silliest faces ever! What a Goof!

I also began using chalk, ribbon and chipboard back then, so other than the style, not much else is new.

This a picture of Kelly's appartment in New york. Itty Bitty, but very cute.

This is about the time I used a lot of plastics too (tokens, charms and letters).
I loved anything "Doodle Bug". Including these little flowers.

And yep, I also used a lot of glitter in my pages (Wendy would freak). I don't use so much anymore, thanks to Stickles!

...and more flowers!! I think I'm catching up!

I hope you enjoyed. It's been a fun trip down memory lane!

Some Recent Layouts

Here are a few recent layouts I've completed for Olivia's book. I have about six more layouts and her book (s) will be complete. I tried to squeeze all the layouts into one book, but it's impossible. I guess I have to stop taking so many pictures. Yeah right!

This is the first page of her book
