Because They Say So! **Bella Blvd**

**ETA** I have a layout featured on the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog. You can check it out here.**


Morning everyone!

Sarah Hodgkinson issued a challenge on the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog.

Step one was to pick one of the sketches that Becky Fleck has provided in the spring 2010 issue of SCT. I chose this one:

Step two was to head on over to Color Lovers and search through the colour palettes until I found one that appealed to me. It was my first time starting a layout from a colour palette. I chose this one:

And here is the result. The slate looked more black to me last night for some reason. And I took the liberty of toning down the green a bit.


Patterned paper: Bella Blvd (Flirty, Super Stud, Honey I'm Home and Swing Into Spring), My Mind's Eye (Wild Asparagus)

Letter stickers: American Crafts Puffy Thickers (Bumble)

Brads: American Crafts

Ribbon: SEI

Flowers: WRMK (Tiffany) and Prima

Punch: Fiskars

Pen: American Crafts

Life is not a race. Take it slower. Hear the music before the song is over.♥
