Starbucks with a side of Sass -- featuring Bella Blvd. :)

Hi everyone! :) 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter :) 

I wanted to share a layout today that I made this weekend for the latest Stuck On U Sketches challenge :) 

This was their Die Cut challenge -- Anything "Spring" challenge :) 


I took a bunch of older Bella Blvd. papers from their Socialite, Sophisticates, Tail Waggers & Cat Naps, Family Dynamix, Hello Beautiful, Finally Fall and Plastino collections and made a TON of butterflies (even used one the negative butterfly strips as a mask around the edges) -- and added some Bella Blvd. feathers, crochet hearts and flowers on my layout :) 









And I wanted to share some photos from Easter :) 

Brookie woke at crack-o-dawn and I made her wait till at least 6:30 to wake her Daddy so she could open her basket :) 

(Adam slept till 10 .. so no photos of him opening his! LOL! Oy .. to be 17 again!! LOL!) 





Then after Brookie got dressed -- we took some photos of her in her Easter dress :) 




(and no ... I didn't make the headband .. lol) 






And the last one I want to share is my monthly photo with my babies in honor of Aleida :)



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
