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 :)


Coordinating Double Dot - Honey Mustard Dot
Cambridge Victory
Note Worthy Cambridge
Cardstock Stickers - Rock Star
Cambridge 12x12 Chipboard
Cambrige Clearly Stamps

Other Supplies:
Embossing powder

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 :)

Gorgeous card and layout. And so sad about your friend! Terrible that she passed away so young. The layout you did of her is just beautiful, and such a nice way to remember her :)

The photos of you are lovely! Shame how we are always so critical of the photos of ourselves - I love your BB projects - just perfect use for the subjects you've chosen. That layout of you and your friend is very touching. x
