Challenge at Bo Bunny

It's time for a new challenge at Bo Bunny!  As you know by now, that means a Bo Bunny Scrappy Prize is up for grabs!!  Be sure to check out the blog to get the details and enter the challenge!

The challenge this time is to scrap what is in your purse.  No, not your wallet!  The unusual, the interesting, the must haves... you know, the bottom of your purse!

Here is my take:  Let me tell you, I am a complete purse PIG!  I would say that I am going to do better, but after all these years, I just don't think it will happen! :)

I used the Ad Lib collection for this one.  It is such a fun collection and I thought it was the perfect match for this challenge and my layout!

So... I hope to see your take at the Bo Bunny Blog!!

Sketch Challenge Friday at Bo Bunny

It's another Friday challenge at the Bo Bunny Blog!  It's always a great way to be inspired and have a chance to win some Bo Bunny goodies!

This Friday we are having a sketch challenge.  Guess who was asked to do a sketch?  That would be ME!  Now, I have to admit to a 'tiny' bit of panic here!  :)  I have never done a sketch before!  Thought about it, but never done one.  I did manage to do one though!  I had no idea how to make fancy edges or to add flourishes, so my sketch is pretty basic.  I like that because I'm going to get to see what YOU will add to it to make it yours.  If you've never done a sketch, let me encourage you to do so.  It was a lot of fun to play with shapes and balance on the computer.

So here it is... My first ever sketch!

Here is the layout that I made with my sketch.  I used the new Gabrielle Collection from Bo Bunny.  I LOVE this collection!  It is so soft and beautiful and I thought it was perfect from some of Jade's senior portraits.

Take a peek at the Bo Bunny Blog to be inspired by some of the other design team members using this sketch!   It always inspires me to see how different designers with different styles look at the same sketch! 

Now it's your turn! Take this sketch, pull out your favorite Bo Bunny products and create a layout. We will pick one random winner to receive a fabulous prize package from Bo Bunny!
You have until March 23 to complete your layout!  You must go to the Bo Bunny Blog and link it there to enter.

Tag, You're It! with Bo Bunny

TalkingTags with Bo Bunny!  Tags are one of those versatile embellishments that can serve so many purposes.  They can be simple embellishments, journaling spots or even a place to put an extra picture or two.   

For this layout, I decided to use them to tuck away the details about this picture.  The question of placement was solved by putting them along the edges.  Instead of just tucking them underneath the center sheet of paper, I decided to stitch along the front to make pockets.  My favorite part of this idea?  The stitches added another design element.  It works perfectly, too!  The tags pull right out from between the layers.

Out On a Limb

This layout was made with the fun and fabulous Ad Lib collection.  I thought that it went really well with this funny photograph.  The one getting strangled is my son... he deserved it, too!  :)  We took this picture in the park with a huge group of kids.  Even though they were seniors in high school, there was just no way that they could resist climbing this old and HUGE tree!  They had a blast!

You can see how the pockets were made in these close-ups.  I used my Cricut to make different tag shapes and added a bit of Double-Dot ribbon.

Supplies Used: Ad Lib Collection Paper Stripe, Verbiage and Scribbles. Ad Lib 12x12 Chipboard, Layered Chipboard, Dimensional Stickers, Noteworthy, Life's Good Stickers and Buttons. Double-Dot in Coffee Dot.
Other Supplies: Pink Paislee Holly Doodle Alphabet and DMC Floss.
