Designer's Challenge ~ Bella Style!

Happy Friday to you!  

Another exciting weekend is upon us, I can't wait!  We have family coming to visit from Des Moines and are so excited to see them!  What do you have going on?

Today, I want to share with you my project that Bella Blvd revealed yesterday on their blog.  This was such an awesome Designer's Challenge.  Our assignment:  Create a 12x12 layout using black and white photos.

I had so much fun working with the Socialite line, the elegant feel of these papers were the perfect compliment to this fun picture!   It took on a whole new feel when I printed it off in black and white!

I was so completely fortunate to be able to go to CHA in Chicago this summer.  These are the wonderful ladies that I met and spent time with.  It was such a whirlwind and a complete blast.  I mean every word when I say that they are four fabulous friends, it was like we had known each other forever!  It is the exact feeling of timeless friendship that I think this picture conveys in black and white.  
I cut out the flourishes and decided to use them as my journaling spots.  I decided to use my Prima birdcage bling and my Stampin Up! bird punch to add just a little extra touch. The bird started out as yellow and white pattern paper, but I misted it.  The black glitter gems are by Pebbles and the beautiful black trim was a gift from Liz, thank you!!!.  

What a great challenge and prompt Bella, thank you!

Thanks for stopping by and have a super scrappity day! 

pssst...  make sure you stop by Bella Blvd tomorrow for another post from me!!!
