K? Let’s play.

First before we start our Bellarific Friday “session” lol I need to express my deepest and most sincere sympathies to Amanda Reed’s (AKA Amandabella) family.  Amanda passed away suddenly yesterday morning and since hearing this news, I have been devastated.  Amanda was so talented, so full of life, and was  such an amazing part of our team a little while ago.  I am so so so sad to hear this terrible news :(.

I know there will be a bit of a somber feeling to this post… let’s just commemorate Amanda with images that came to life through colouring.. just what she was so good at doing.

This week’s theme was a sketch

August 27th, 2014

I thought we would have one here too for those of you NOT on facebook :)

As I hinted in the past, there are going to be lots of amazing changes here in Bellaland.. and the biggest change will allow me to spend MORE time with my sistahs!!!  This makes me happy.  Reminds me of the good ole’ days.   So as part of this celebration of having more time in my life  I thought we would have a “selfie” challenge.  Basically hold up your favorite stamp/stamps, take a picture of you and link it in the comments below… I love putting a face to a name .. and would love to get to know all of you bettah!

So here’s mine.. in my vacation place..wearing NO makeup LOL.. holding up FLOOR PLAN and FRAMED NUMBERS

it’s Bellarific friday and the “FLASHY” sale continues through the weekend!

August 22nd, 2014

Oh sistahs.. what a week.

Been crazy busy and then I was noticing my poor frankie scratching and scratching.  So I had to take him to the vet.  and this is now the face that  stares at me

2014-08-22 17 01 19

On Monday we have a scheduled minor operation to remove this itchy bump he has.. the vet is worried that something built a home in there and is growing :(  talk about gross.  I am hoping all goes smoothly for this love of my life (shh don’t tell the kids)

So that is the highlight of my week.

I promise as of first week of september I will announce winnahs from contributin’ to bellarific friday.  Life will get back to normal by then (Everything crossed)

 

I know I am a huge tease but I gotta tell you.. this release I am preparing is PHENOM.. I have been working on it for 3 months.. and so has Elaineabella bringing them all to life.. and we have our new website coming… and the news I have been dying to share since last year…lots of good stuff for da bella and her sistahs (not to be confused with Woody Allen’s movie HANNAH and her SISTERS) LOL

Ok now for this week’s challenge.  an inspiration photo!

I have to thank my design team soooo much .. Danabella especially for organizing these challenges.  She’s so organized and amazing!  I love you Danabella!
