Bo Bunny Designer Showcase

Hi everyone!!  Hope you are having a great summer! 

No... I haven't fallen off the end of the earth!  :)  Like all of you are probably finding in the summer months, I have been crazy busy!  Between planning a big party, making curtains, traveling and having the kids in and out, it seems like I have been running around with my hair on fire! 

I have been scrapping though!  Not that you would know it by looking at my blog lately!  Don't worry though, I'm gearing up to start sharing!   

This month is "Get to Know a Designer" at Bo Bunny

Each weekday this month features a different designer.  If you haven't already been to the blog to take a peek... you NEED to!  In addition to sharing their families, favorites and inspiration...
there are PRIZES to be had!! 

You have so many ways to win this month at Bo Bunny

If you haven't seen the new Bo Bunny collections, you can go take a peek at them here!  Let me tell you... Bo Bunny outdid themselves this release.  Talk about 'something for everyone'... it's there!

It's not my turn until August 29th, but I wanted to let ya'll know what's going on!

In the meantime, I have a little Bo Bunny project to share from the last release. I made this using the Vicki B. collection and was SUPER excited that Bo Bunny decided to use in in an advertisement for this collection in a European Magazine! Yay!!!

When I saw this collection, my immediate thought was about Bo Bunny's style.  I love it!  In addition to Bo Bunny Style, I had my great niece staying with us and had spent the previous weekend making clothes for her paper dolls.  I couldn't resist making a little 'stylish dress' from this collection.

In this close-up, you can see the dimension.  I used a lot of pop dots to make the layers.  I also used the
   Bo Bunny wraps and petals to make the little belt.  Add a few pieces of emboidery floss for detail. 

Hint:  I didn't have a hanger that was size appropriate for this 8x10 inch frame, so I just used a question mark and a bracket from a package of chipboard alphabets.

I used a punch for the smaller ruffle on the dress.  When you add folds or pleats your paper will curve nicely along the bottom.  The bottom pleated petticoat is simply a strip of paper pleated for detail.  The edges of the sleeves were done the same way.

Don't forget to check out the Bo Bunny Blog!! 
Look for me there on August 29!  Don't worry... I'll remind you here!  :)

Thanks for dropping by!
