Lady in Red!

Hello friends
Okay so not quite a 'lady' in red but little Bella! 
Goodness she is getting a lot of publicity right now - I hope it doesn't go to her head.
This is a scrapbook page I created for Spellbinders and it is very far from my usual style.
Occasionally I get a 'craft whim' to go bold and bright.
All the details of this page can be found here.
I decided I wanted to use Timeless Rectangles as a photo mat and as a banner.
I am so very partial to flowers and the Daisy Flower Topper still does it for me every time!

Wonderful comments yesterday, just to confirm the papers I used for the money wallet
were Carta Bella - Traditions - you can see them here - really beautiful thick paper.

Also today a shout out to CALLIE!
I haven't heard from you to claim your prize - the Numbers and Letters M-Bossabilities folder.

Wishing you all a great weekend - let's hope the sunshine returns.
Take care.

Come on Callie if you don't want your prize I know someone who would love it. Got a bit confused this morning and commented on yesterday's post. Bella is adorable in the scrapbook page and the wallet is lovely.

Hi Christine. What a wonderful picture. Bella is so photogenic and oh so cute. Love the banner made with the smaller dies.

Wake up Callie, there's a lot of ladies who would love your prize.

Bella certainly graces your page beautifully. If Callie doesn't come forward, perhaps you will need to put Bella to work again to pick another winner.

Morning Christine, love your page color, Love the way you did the banner like it much better than the regular banner shape. Most of all love the STAR. Sweet Bella, such a cute expression.

Carolyn H. said...

Christine, This scrap page may well be different from your normal style but I like it, it may well have somethink to do with that adorable little doggie in the photo!!
Callie, I'm often called Callie by my family so if you don't claim your prize , I'm going to suggest that I'm next in line for those dies!
Have a lovely weekend Christine,esp. tomorrow ( Mother's Day) lets hope it brightens up weatherwise.
Crafty best wishes, Carolyn x

hi Christine, what a fabulous picture of bella, and the page really does it justice. do you mind me asking what did you use the for lettering? from the photo is looks as though you have die cut the letters into the banner sections, but no alphabet set was listed on the spellbinders page,(unless i've missed it!). I must admit spellbinders alphabet dies would be one set of dies i would definitly purchase.

still raining here, would love some sunshine!

take care

What a great idea, using the rectangles as a banner. Those dies are truly beautiful, I just love using them.
Bella is lovely - good job she's not in Hollywood, she'd get so spoiled.......
Have a great Sunday (I don't care about the rain, just got my new dies and stamps so very happily playing...
Best wishes

Hi Christine, This is a fabulous layout, Bella is her 'adorable, cheeky' self, I love the brightness of the red, and I love the way you have used the timeless rectangles for the banners, genius.
Like Wilma, come on Callie, you lucky girl, get in touch with Christine, there are lots of us who would love the prize.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
