Some Bella, Studio Calico, and Moxie?????

Morning!!!! I hope and pray you had a lovely Easter Holiday. I know me and my family really enjoyed our time together.
Boy, I have been taking some much needed time off from everyday life. I think I have read about 4 books so far. Life has thrown me a few curve balls in the last 6 months and scrapping has always been my sanctuary but now the wind in my sails have blown out. It is kind of funny how we make our children take a "time out" when they have done something wrong or have a stinky attitude yet it is so hard for us, as the parent, to realize when it is time to just take a "time out" for ourselves. So that is what I am doing at this present time.
Have you ever watched Night at the Museum 2???? I love the character Amy Adams plays, Amelia Earhart. At one point her character is speaking to Ben Stiller's character and she says, "you've lost your MOXIE". Do you get it???? Sometimes we lose what we are passionate about. It gets lost somewhere in the pressures of life to do and be better. So while I take a rest, I am going to find my MOXIE.

While on assignment for the fabulous Stephanie Hunt who is the creator of the fabulous Bella Blvd., I was challenged to create a layout about friends. This is me and two of my high school friends at our favorite chinease restuarant. When I go home I always love to hook up with some of my girls that I have known now for the last 25 years. Wow time sure flys by so fast!!!!

Here is Bella Blvd., Estate Sale line....

I was also challenged to do an altered project. I honestly am terrified of altered projects just because it is out of my comfort zone but I continue to push beyond my fears. I made a mini tin with my favorite Bella line, All Inclusive. I would like to take this time to thank Stephanie for her belief in me and allowing me to be a part of the Bella Artista team. You rock Stephanie!!!!!

Before I go, here is the last lo I have created in which I used products from my first kit by Studio Calico. I have heard so many fab things about SC so I decided to take the plunge and try them out. (Think about it ladies, if we are not scrapping, we are shopping for scrapy supplies. It is a vicious cycle!!! LOL!!! )Such sweet papers for a sweet picture. This is Abigail and my niece, Madisyn. They truly are some "sweet lil Girls".
