More Bo Bunny items and some photos!

First off I have a couple more Bo Bunny projects to share!  The first is a card using Cambridge, I am still quite new to this card making but I am getting there :)

Next we had to do a two page layout and I used Olivia which just went perfectly with my photos!  These are photos of me and one of my best Friends Taryn, we have been friends since standard 5 so for about 20 years!  These photos were taken 2 years ago about 2 months before she died very unexpectedly.  I had a hard time coming to terms with her death which I think is why it took me so long to scrap these photos but now that I have I think it has helped me loads even with the crying involved!  Taryn was 31, a school teacher and a wonderful person.  I have so many good memories of her, we always had loads of fun together! :)

I painted and inked my chipboard letters to match my papers and then used rub-ons to help co-ordinate them with my layout.

I used the chocolate ruffle wrap and iCandy brads to make these yummy flowers!

Lol still not sorted through all my photos but as these are on my camera card at the moment thought I would put them up.  I usually try to avoid being in front of the camera but decided a little while ago that I need to allow more photos of myself because I have thousands of photos from our life but going through them it is almost like I am not in it because I am never in any of the photos and I want my kids to be able to look back and remember all of us!  So I am really happy to have these because I have hardly any photos of me and Paul and of me and my sisters!  I have some more with my other sister and my mom but they are on the other cards that I have not sorted yet!  These are from when we went out to supper one night it was a really fab restaurant, the food was amazing and the servings were huge!!

My messy hair is because we spent the whole day at Wet & Wild at Usahka, where we had such a ball that I didn't even get to take any photos!!!  That is a first, but the camera was locked away in a locker and we were having too much fun to stop and go and get it out.  We even ended up leaving late because we didn't want to leave so we had to rush home, get changed and charge out to meet everyone else for supper (no time to do anything like fix your hair ;) ).  Definitely have to do that next time, I felt like a kid again! 

This is my younger sister Tamlyn and her husband Jaques, shame she had surgery on her gum the day before and her top lip was still all swollen and couldn't move properly here but she is such a good sport that she still came with us to Wet & Wild and then out to supper :)

This is my elder sister Trish and her friend Barbara.  And finally I will leave you with a photo of the sunset from our balcony in Umhlanga Rocks :)

Bo Bunny Indulgence - Twilight

We had to do a layout for Bo Bunny about a secret indulgence so of course I had to choose Twilight as mine!  Not really a secret indulgence as everyone knows I LOVE Twilight but it is definitely an indulgence to me!  I did my layout using the scrummy Cambridge collection :)

I love the effect of punching shapes out of paper and then putting them against the same paper, it also looks fab with card stock!

Well things have just been crazy busy since we got back and I still haven't had time to go through my photos so none of those to go up yet!  My kids have also added new activities to their list and although some have fallen away with the ones they have added we now have something on everyday except Sunday and some days have 2 activities!!  I seem to hardly ever be home anymore, think I need to get myself a Chauffeurs outfit! ;)  Tfl!

Back Home and Bo Bunny Audition Pieces!

Hi!  Well we are back from our holiday and I am so sad to be home because I am already missing my family but am also so excited to be home because I will soon get to play with loads of gorgeous Bo Bunny products!!  I can't wait to start but will just have to wait a couple of days to get my box from my sister in law where I had it delivered while we were away!

In the meantime I thought I would share my Bo Bunny audition pieces. :)  We had to do 2 layouts, 2 cards and then a project of our choice.

My first layout was done using the stunning Mama-razzi collection, I really adore this collection!

My second layout was with the wonderfully happy making Flower Child line. :)

My two cards were done with the Sophie and Paradise collections.

And for my final project I chose to do a chipboard and acrylic mini book using the Paradise collection.  This is another collection I adore as it really has the most amazing beachy feel to it!

Well I have 3 2GB cards full of photos to sort through but once I am done I will put a few photos up from our holiday!
