OMG!! I can't believe it!!!

Look at this.....

Seriously if we could have 300 Design Team members, we would.

The talent that is out there blows our minds.

We were so excited to see projects from 22 different countries!!!

The entire office has been pouring over audition e-mails and images.

We've heard things like...

"Come look at this one..."

"did you see that one?"

"I said it before, but this really is my favorite."

"Can she come work here?"

You guys did not make this an easy task for us!

I am still in total shock!!  I really didn't expect to be chosen I mean this is BO BUNNY but thought I would never know unless I tried and I am so glad I did!  Do you see the amazing designers on that list!  I am so honoured to be working with them and oh my gosh I can't wait to get some more Bo Bunny yumminess to play with, their new lines are just AMAZING!  I actually read through that a couple of times and just didn't see my name at all lol, then I had to refresh the page a couple of times to make sure it didn't disappear!  
Nobody pinch me because I don't want to wake up! ;)

Just a quick post today because I leave this afternoon for our holiday to South Africa! 

I am very excited because we only go every second year so although I have seen my parents twice in the last year because they have come over here, it has been 2 years since I have seen my sisters!  I am not however looking forward to the flight!  Such a long flight with 2 young kids is a bit of a nightmare.

Anyway I will leave you with this...If you go over to Tracie's blog Life and Times of a 12x12 addict  she is having some fab giveaways :)

I am not sure if I will manage any blog posts while I am away or get to read any of the wonderful blogs I follow as my moms Internet can be a bit up and down but I will try and catch up as much as possible once I am back :).  Four weeks of no blog reading :o!!  I will miss browsing every ones blogs!

Sketchy Thursdays

This was the sketch for this weeks Sketchy Thursdays challenge.

And here is my layout for the challenge.  I don't know if it looks all that much like the sketch in the end!

I used A piece of Reminisce Genuine Boy paper that I bought ages ago and just have never got around to using it.  It was just one of those pieces of paper I was saving for the right photo so I am glad I have finally used it!  Here are some close ups.

I cut some shapes out of acetate and then outlined them in black really like the effect!

I used Memories Mists to colour the chipboard again and then inked the edges.  I really like using the mists for the chipboard it is so much quicker than painting them or covering them in paper, I think I need to get myself a few more colours! 

It is still raining, so far that is every day of the school holidays so far!  Luckily they still play football even when it rains here because the boys have been at football school a couple of days this week.  I am just about to go and play some put-put on the Wii with them!  Tfl!
