It's Wednesday, which means we have another round of free-for-all layouts for you. Check out the fun, everyday layouts that three of our designers created with the new Kiss Me collection!
“Always Best Friends”, by Megan Klauer.
My nieces have such a great sister/friend relationship and I just love to capture it! The Stars & Hearts are possibly my favorite Chipboard Elements from Bella Blvd & can often be found in many of my designs. Mixed in the wood buttons and two of my favorite Designer Tapes & I'm in embellishment heaven!

“First Love”, by Katherine McElvain.
My oldest child is Connor, an enthusiastic 17 year old boy. Recently Connor purchased a car with his own money...yes the one in the photo, and yes he didn't just find it on the side of the road; unbelievably, he paid cold, hard earned cash for it. Myself, being a girl who drives a fairly new mini van, I do not fully understand why anyone would want to make the investment in a car like this. But Connor LOVES this car! He calls it "Sylvia". Rebuilding it is the main priority in his life, he spends every free moment with her, and we joke that she is like a girlfriend to him. When I told him I was going to do a layout about her for the Bella Blvd blog he even offered to take a better picture of her. I declined, figuring I had plenty to choose from, since he photographs her often. I choose this picture he took back in her youth and turned it black and white. A great match for the new Bella Kiss Me collection. And the zebra striped fender that Connor painted (he assures me that will not stay that way...whew!) was perfectly accented with those great Bella Zebra buttons. I added some stickers from older Bella collections to complete the story. It was very fun to put together! So today I challenge you, like this layout about Sylvia, to use the Kiss Me collection with some older Bella products to scrapbook a fun and unique story about what is loved in your world.

"The Mustache", by Kim Jeffress.
My eldest is in love with drinking bubbachinos. Whenever we are near a coffee shop that's what he has. Recently I snapped this fun photo of him with a bubbachino mustache and when I received the papers from the new Kiss Me collection I knew immediately I had to team it with this photo. I am totally in love with the Mustache love pattern paper, so much fun so I wanted that to be the main paper that I used. Being a boy page I trimmed the pink lines from the multi-colored chevron Love Notes pattern paper. Also, if you know me, yellow is my go to color when creating so I had to sneak in some yellow chevron from the Miles and Smiles paper from the Birthday Girl collection. I used my cameo to cut that fun mustache which I made into a banner flag and also used the negative of one I cut too small to add to the mustache theme. As well I used one of the flags from the Birthday Girl collection but trimmed off the birthday cake to suit my layout.

“Fall Photos”, by Jenny Evans.
We have family pictures taken every fall, and this is one of my favorite photos from our 2009 session. The Thankful collection is perfect for scrapping these kinds of photos! I love the gorgeous mix of patterns and colors, and how well they complement my photo! I sketched out my layout beforehand, which really helped the scrapping process go smoother.
