Bo Bunny Blog Hop!!

Wooohooo it is that time again!!  Welcome to the second Bo Bunny blog hop for May!
 

The Bo Bunny designers have put together some amazing work to share on their blogs. Today we have eight featured designers to inspire you to create!

You should have come here from the very talented Romy's blog but if you are just joining us you can start at the Bo Bunny Blog.
Today's designers include:



 

The Blog Hop begins at Tomoko's blog and then each designer will link you to the next blog, but all of the participating designers' blogs are linked above just in case.   If you would like to play along, follow along the blog path and just keep hopping until you reach the end! 

This is my project for the blog hop using the beautiful Gabrielle range.   This is one of my favourite photos of my son when he was little skipping along happily in our garden.   I have wanted to scrapbook this photo for ages and each time I looked at it "There are fairies in the bottom of my garden" always popped into my head so I had a pretty good idea of what sort of page I wanted to do and the Gabrielle papers were just perfect for what I had in mind! :)

The little white roses were store bought but all the other flowers were made using 2 different sized 6 petal flower punches.
To give the tree a bit of dimension I did a few different layers for the leaves, starting with masking some leaves using the negative piece of the punched cardstock and then adding a few leaves in a darker shade of paper and topping that with the lighter patterned paper and using some foam dots to pop those up a bit on the end.  I also couldn't resist painting a bit of glitter glue onto some of the leaves to give it a bit more of a magical feel. :)


Bo Bunny Supplies used:
Gabrielle , Gabrielle Flight, Gabrielle Romance, Gabrielle Cameo
Gabrielle 6x6 Paper Pad
Gabrielle Dimensional Stickers
Gabrielle Jewels
Gabrielle Wrap
Gabrielle Clear Stamps
Gabrielle Brads
Gabrielle Rub-ons
Coordinating double dot Chiffon dot and Turquoise Flourish
Others:
Masks
Spray Inks
Jewels
Punches
Alphabets

And now for the Blog Hop prizes!  Leave a comment on each designer's blog.  One designer's blog will be chosen to pick a comment at random.   You don't know which blog we will be picking from so make sure to leave a comment on them all.   To be eligible for the second prize leave a comment on the Bo Bunny blog after hopping through all the blogs and one will be chosen at random. 


So next you need to hop on over to the lovely Samantha's blog!

The winners will be announced next Wednesday on the Bo Bunny blog.  Have fun hopping!
