Smile! Saycheeseabella is all set to take your picture! When Em (the queen Bella) revealed this bella some time ago I knew I had to have it. I love to take pictures...even though I'm not that good at it most of the time. Isn't this an interesting color combination? This color combo (the Purely Pomegranate and Pale Plum) is on the list of color combinations that SU! supplied us with for the 07/08 In Colors. For some reason I didn't order the sentiment that goes with this Bella so I used my PTI Paper Trey set and came up with this sentiment. I used my Pearl Baubles in the corners of the Pale Plum card stock and my Mega and Giga circle punches for my Bella image. The Pale Plum patterned paper came from a pack of Adhesive Mats that I got from Target. Really...this entire pack of 40 mats in 5 patterns has adhesive on the back side! Best part is that the pack was under $5.00! Very cool!

Was anyone else at the PJ party last night on the Bella forum at SCS? I was there! It is always interesting to try and participate in those things as most of the time the threads move very quickly and it is hard to keep up. The thing I like the most...besides the new stamps that were that 3 challenges where put up during this partay! There is a color challenge, sketch challenge, and an inspiration challenge. You can go HERE to get to the forum and then just look for the challenges. If you decide to take part in them you have until Sunday to post them to the thread and you may just WIN some of the new stamps that were released last night! Please link me to them through the comments section here so I can see too!

AND, not to mix up stamp companies but guess who else released their new stamps last night? Yep, that is right...Hanna Stamps! Kristi released the new set called Domestic Goddess for purchase. It is absolutely adorable! I love the saying with this set. It is "A clean house is the sign of a lazy stamper." How funny is that? She also released some of her Riley Moose stamps which are so cute too! Coffee Riley is my favorite followed closely by Plane Riley. She has Riley both mounted on wood and unmounted so perfect for everyone! HERE is Hanna Stamps SCS forum. Kristi just had her birthday last Friday and she had a fun birthday party! There were some challenges there too that you can try.

Okay, so...have I given you enough things to click on and go see today? Can you tell I love these stamp companies? Grin 5

I hope you all have a great Thursday!

Love your bella card! My mom ordered me some bellas for my b-day but I don't know which ones yet as I haven't seen her to get my presents from her!! Can't wait to find out! I was so excited that Krisit released her stamps early! Did you order domestic goddess??? I'm still trying to decide! I've been so bad about not stamping with SU lately!!! But there are so many cute things on the market!!
