a reason to smile…

How can it be Friday already?  Is anyone else wondering how in the world a single day can drag on for so long, yet an entire week simply flies by?  It’s been a crazy summer so far with kids going all different directions – but by tonight everyone in our little family will be safely tucked back into our little nest, which makes this mama bird VERY happy! 

Yesterday I had a layout go live on the Bella Blvd. blog – it’s title, appropriately, “find a reason to smile.” 


I was challenged to create this layout based on an inspiration piece found on pinterest – click over to the Bella Blvd. blog to see the inspiration as well as several more projects inspired by the same piece.  I always love to see how other designers interpret photos for these types of challenges, don’t you?

Here are some details:


I was going to include a supply list – but the list is HUGE – that’s what happens when you go rifling through an entire stash to find a few specific colors! So instead, click over to my gallery at (here) and you can find links to all of the products I used!  :)

Have a happy weekend – find a reason (or a hundred) to smile! :)
