Family w/ NAS & Bella Blvd

I can't believe this is my last layout with Nuts About Sketches!
I've been on Shawn's team numerous times over the years and used so many of her sketches. I just LOVE them. I'm super sad to see her quit using a design team, but I'm so happy she's going to keep sharing her wonderful sketches with us!

This is the layout I've created for this last sketch.
I got my whole family on this layout with these two photos from our 4th of July celebration.
So I knew Bella Blvd's Family Forever collection would be fun for this layout.

Here's the sketch. You can see that I stayed pretty close to the design.

I had fun cutting out the strips from the Bella line and then piecing them back together in different ways around my layout.

I used twine to do some hand sewing and then added some of that fun Bella chevron tape too. I used a punch for the little hearts, but hand cut the bigger ones. The stars are cut from one of the strips of the Bella paper.

This flag came from the winter flags collection but went perfectly with my page. I just added one of those fussy cut stars to it for a bit more flair.

Putting the title and journaling on this layout was really fun. I loved using all the great stickers Bella has to go with their lines to stack up a fun title. Then I took this quote they had as a pp strip, cut it into pieces and used it for my journaling.

Thanks for stopping by!
