Here is a quick update on the October release...the kits will be available on the website Friday the 29th since the first falls on Saturday. Scroll down to see the releases.
They have been introducing the new design team over at the Bella Studio Blog and today is my day. Be sure to stop by to see a few of my layouts. Thought I would leave a layout for you here as well.
I have to say I'm a huge fan of two page layouts. I have to have my pages match on each side when I look through my albums. I have tried to get past it, but I just can't do it! I have managed to get past scrapbooking chronologically which was huge for me, so I figure I that is good for now. For this layout my thought was a "wild card" theme for our "wild ride" and the family line was perfect since our rafting trip was with my family. Instead of using the flowers from the Cute Cuts sheet on the page, I cut out the centers of the flowers and used just the circles on the page. To add a "water" touch I free hand cut some water splashes. I also added in a hint of yellow by bringing in a pattern from the Socialite collection.
