Awesome kid/Bella Blvd DT

Good morning everyone!! I'm sharing my first layout made with the new Bug Explorer collection!! I love this collection, and yeah I know I say it about all of them, but oh many are they all so beautiful and fun to play with!
I went threw the collection and pulled papers I thought would look good with my photo and decided to go with a less busy background, but a patterned one. Once I decided on that, I pulled the daily details paper and cut a bunch of the cards apart and started layering them behind my photo.
Once I got the layers the way I wanted them, I started to play with a few of the papers I had pulled from the collection. I love all the patterns and wanted to add some more color to the right side, so I decided to add a few strips and distress the edges and went back and distressed the edges of my layers too. Once I had my papers down the side I knew right where I wanted my picture. 
Ok, so y'all have seen the new acrylic words right? And pennants?? Well I love them all!! So I pulled the word Awesome, then dug threw all my pennants and found the one I chose to use, it actually said Kids, but I decided to pull of the "s" and just make it kid. So I used the combo of those two for my title. I pulled a mixture of leaves from the ephemera pack and the chipboard pieces and added them around my photo and tucked my pennant under some of those and added the cute little sun and cloud piece up by my title.
Finishing off my layout, I decided to grab a few stickers from the sticker sheet and then go into my Bella goodies and grab some of the Illustrated Faith hexie epoxy stickers and add them around the layout, they add a new shape and I love the pop of color it adds!
Thanks so much for stopping by to check out the layout I made today and make sure to come back!!

Vacay relaxation/Bella Blvd DT

Good morning everyone!! I am having fun playing with the new Island escape collection from Bella Blvd!! This collection has so much to it! You can go big and floral or minimal like I did with this layout, but it still has beautiful bright colors and make everything pop!!
I wanted to have my picture to stand out, I rarely use a colored photo, but this picture of the sky was so beautiful and I enjoyed the day so much that I really wanted to keep it in color and remember the beauty of the day. I was laying on the deck of a boat, sun bathing, soaking it all in and decided I wanted to snap a picture of the beautiful sky, so I did. And this whole collection made it all come together!
I started with my photo, no mat on this one, but started pulling patterned papers and layering them behind my photo. I love the Daily details paper, you can use the pretty patterned paper on one side or you can cut all the different pieces apart on the other side and use them for titles or great layers! And that is what I did here! I did my layers and then pulled a doily from my stash and tucked it into my layers and behind my title card.

With my picture being of what its of, I knew I wanted to use the waves from the Ciao Chips, so I made sure to add those in, then moved to cutting and ripping a few layers from different papers and layering them at the bottom of my layout to pull some color down to the bottom to. I pulled a few pieces from the Ciao chips and tucked them into the layers at the bottom and added the banana at the top of my photo to add a little more yellow there. 
I found the Float along sticker tab and popped it in at the bottom too, I thought it was appropriate, lol. I wanted more color, so I grabbed my Mini Hexies epoxy stickers and added them in here and there around the layout. I added my journaling to the bottom right of my photo to remember the day and decided to add a little more color, so I added a few teal splatters and was done.
Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out this layout! I hope you get your hands on this collection and enjoy all of it!!
