FWF Bella Layout

I feel like I have been so busy lately that once a week posts are becoming the norm.
I don't want to get in that habit; my excuse is the awesome Midwest weather
and my new bike. :)

So a few weeks ago I tried out for my first design team spot with Bella Blvd.
I've never even submitted anything for publication so this was a LONG shot.
Obviously I didn't get selected but the excitement has me thinking I might try something like this again.

Here is one of the layouts I made:

I used Unity's Sunny Happy Skies and I paper pieced the butterfly which I received in a grab bag.
The month in the bottom corner is from Just the Ticket

I absolutely LOVE this layout and the photo of my mother and me.
It's just so "us."

Here's a link to the Unity Blog to check out all the Friends with Flair participants.
ONE week from today I will be at SCRAPFEST!!!!

Erin, love the layout and how you used the BB flowers. LOVE those papers and stamps! Great mom hug, too!
FYI, the turkey on my cards is a Pink Cat Studio digi, not Unity. Didn't want to cause confusion!
