Bella Blvd Midterm Layout

Hi everyone. I thought I'd pull myself away from the flood reports on tv for a while to update my blog. I still can't believe that Queensland is such a disaster zone, and the worst of it hasn't even hit yet. I'm so grateful that the we live out of the way of that whole area, so we haven't been too affected, apart from having some roads cut off. My poor Mum and Dad though, are stuck in their house with no power, and have just been told that their water will be cut off. Still, it's nothing compared to the thousands of people whose homes have gone under water, and those people who have lost their lives :(

So being stuck inside because of the constant rain over the last week has given me plenty of time to scrap. And I have got so much done! Not a whole heap I can share just yet, but I can show you this one...


I created this layout using the Guest Design Team Kit from Handmade By Suzanne. I have to say, the kit was awesome, with some very yummy Bella Blvd Midterm papers and lots of fab embellies, and a very awesome sheet of glittery red AC cardstock. In my kit were some cute little packs of gems, some of which I've added to the pizza sticker here (with some of that glittery card underneath...


The sticker sheet I got was awesome, with different types of alphas and words, and borders and more...


One of the papers was so cute, and had all these little speech bubbles, and words that I cut out...


Of course I had to add some Purple Pumpkin buttons and embellishments on there too...


I love these Purple Pumpkin owl buttons, and it just went so well on this page...


Now, you wouldn't believe the incredible bargains to be found in the Handmade By Suzanne store, so make sure you check it out! Click HERE to go straight to these papers and stickers I've used and see for yourself!!

Oh, and this layout came from this sketch...


If you decide to give it a go (and I would LOVE it if you did!!!) you can load it in the Handmade By Suzanne gallery HERE, for your chance to win a prize :)

Well, I think I'll go and watch some more about the floods, and do a bit more scrapping. I hope all my fellow Queenslanders are staying safe and dry. Thanks for stopping by :)
