Bella calendar

I participated in last year's Bella calendar swap hosted by Tangii. I couldn't wait to do this year's calendar. Since my daughter's old bedroom has become my scrap room when she is away at school she saw my Bella calendar hanging in there and wanted one of her own so she decided to join this year's swap too.

After our busy summer we treated ourselves to another retreat weekend at Mountains and Memories where we both worked on our calendar pages among other things.

Here are mine...

This is my April page. I used Lottie and Gussie Gabalot. I love these fairy friends. It is hard to see in the scan but their wings are covered in waterfall stickles. I love the extra sparkle. The pattern papers are from a pack I had in my stash for a while so I don't remember exactly who the vendor isbut I love the color combo of mocha, lime green, turquoise and orange.

This one is my July page. I couldn't resist a Bella in an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini. I love the bright colors of the papers. I used rub on letters from american crafts for the sentiment and a matching ribbon slide.
Last this is my October page. I love Witchybella. For the background I used my cuttlebug embossing folder and then rubbed black ink over the embossed image.

These are so fun to do and I love they way they came out.

Ashleigh's pages will be in the next post.
