Is-a-Bella cute? Yes she is!

Tonight I'm sharing another layout from Bella's album.  I wish I knew exactly who to give the credit to, but awhile ago I was browsing various sites and just took screen shots of layouts that I liked.  This one was from a now defunct website called Two Peas in a Bucket.  The URL at the top says it's by member "~ekskou" so if that's you, please leave a comment with your name as I like to give proper credit.

I really liked how the title was offset on the left and everything was in a pretty tidy column on the right.

Here is my interpretation:
The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Lucille line.  The title is letter Thickers.  The 
em-bellie-shments (*snort) are from Lucille, Studio Calico, and some unknown buttons (called flare in the craft world).  The word stickers are by Tim Holtz, as well as the rub-ons and stamps.  I also used some sparkly ribbon I had in my stash.
In the original layout, I though the colours in the photo matched too closely to the patterned paper and got lost a little.  I "fixed" that by using black as the background and using paper with lighter tones than the picture.  I want the eye to go to the pic first and then to the title.  I'm not a designer, but I always think the picture should pop out first.
