We're all about Bella Blvd over at Practical Scrappers this week!

Yes there's a new brand of iPhone haven't you heard?!  This one is strictly for little people, is available to use at all times of the day or night (whether you like it or not), is full of games and music specifically catering to kindy kids and sports a shatter and drop proof - sponge-bob inspired outer case (so it actually bounces when thrown or dropped repeatedly!)

Yes I'm talking about my most prized and favourite accessory - MY iPhone - but it seems my 2 year old has other ideas and thinks it's hers and constantly yells "my phone!!!" whenever she sees it!  I've actually changed my iPhone cover from the one in the photos to the afor mentioned yellow silicone cover - and boy hasn't it saved me a dozen times from cracked or smashed screens!  My phone has come in handy more times than I care to remember whether it be in doctors waiting rooms, car trips, trolley rides around the store or any time that a diversion is needed (ie. when daddy leaves the house).  We have so many apps Sophia has 2 of her own folders full of them - ranging from Dora, Wiggles and ABC cards to pet games, Elmo and sing-a-longs!  She knows I don't go anywhere without it, and knows it's always on hand when she gets bored!

This layout was inspired from a Page Maps sketch and uses all Bella Blvd papers (except the Bazzill background).  The paper I had was full of different coloured and patterned strips, so I cut them up and used them to frame my photo.  I also added some Bella Blvd lettering, made some bunting and then added a little blingy frame (from Kaisercraft)
For this strip of paper (the green with spots) I stickled some of the spots to help them stand out and shine a bit.  I also doodled around the edge to create a border.
Here's a view of the tiny bunting.  I simply turned the paper over and used the pattern on the other side (this is a great trick cause the patterns and colours are always co-ordinating).  Then I cut them free hand into little triangles.  When I had enough, I raised them on 3D foam dots and layed them side by side where I wanted them.

I have recently come across your tutorial for a pop up ball which you made back in 2009.

I was wondering if you could send me the template to make one?

Thanks so much
