AS on Bella! oh, and 5 on Friday

Big, Big, news! Apron Strings is on the Bella Blvd Blog (now that's a tongue twister), but it's truly and honor to be featured on the Bella Blog during their "Month of Giveaways." I have long been a fan of Bella papers, so cute, so versatile; the "Honey, I'm Home" line is a top fave which is why it was in the January kit. I loved that down-home, cozy winter feel about it. It's what appeals to me in all their papers . . . just life - simplified! If you want a shot at winning the Smaller June kit, with the "Man of the House" line in it - I mean it is Father's Day this weekend, this is the sign you need that it's time to create a layout about the Dad in your life -- head over to the Bella Blog and leave a comment. It's that easy! While you're there browse their gallery, which is sorted by paper line (totally love that!) Grab a blinkie to show your Bella Love and be a Fan on Facebook. Okay, so I had to know - of their fantastic 13 lines released, Apron Strings has had seven! Seven - all truly loved and, yes, I'm hoarding some of it. Well, really, what happens when it's gone?? Hmm. . .guess maybe I should participate in my own "Stash Challenges" I'm so fond of, huh? Speaking of challenges - I have today's! 5 on Friday, and I think I'll pull from the aforementioned Father's Day:
  • 1 sheet cardstock
  • 1 sheet patterned "manly" paper
  • 1 set metallic embellishments
  • 1 set chipboard - keep it naked, if it starts out that way
  • 1 length of felt trim (if you don't have felt trim, any trim will do)
  • BONUS: extra entry if you make it a "manly" layout as well

This challenge and yesterday's are due to be linked up by Saturday evening to be eligible for your weekly Treat.

Remember to leave your comment over at Bella!

Have a great weekend!

Ok, newbie challenge taker here, lol, I struggled with this one but I think maybe, somewhat, a little bit, I might have followed along. Here is my link...

I just got this back kit, and it seemed to fit perfectly into the "manliness" of it all.
