Lattebella Card and Created By Courtney Challenge #28

House Update: We're doing our final walk through this morning at 8:30am with the builder representative. Things are slowly getting there!

This week's challenge is bows! Lots of bows...different kinds of bows! I will have to admit I'm kindof lame and sorry I don't have any cool ways to make bows. I just tie a plain traditional bow like you do on shoes, lol.

I just love Lattebella, which will be me today, because it's back to reality and I have to go to work. You always need a vacation from your vacation, right?!? I went monochromatic on this card and I love how it turned out. I hardly ever make my Bella's blonde, but I think she came out just right.

Paper: CTMH Cardstock, SU Close to Cocoa DP
Stamps: Stamping Bella, Sentiment is Gina K
Buttons, CTMH Ribbon, and Copics

Don't forget to check out the rest of the team's projects. All of them are listed here in this CBC Challenge Chicks list. If you play along with us, remember to link your creation to Courtney's blog, and you could win a prize from Courtney! If you upload to SCS, the keyword is CBCC28.

We had a great trip to Portland! The kiddos get "shy" around Brent, but I was able to get them to take a pic with him! Aren't my bitty siblings just darling?!?

Everyone have a great Tuesday!
