Little Miss and Guns n Roses!

I finally had a chance to play with the new Bo Bunny Little Miss range, I have had it a few weeks but have not had a chance to play with it until now!  This range is so gorgeous and girly and I totally adore it!  This layout was for a focus on chipboard assignment and the chipboard with this range is sooo cute and easy to use :)

The photo is my little sister when she was little, wasn't she cute! :)

Patterned paper : Gracie, Jaquoya, Cut outs, 6x6 Paper Pad/Little Miss

We went to a Guns n Roses concert on Tuesday night.  I was really looking forward to it as Guns n Roses are definitely a big band from my youth! :)  It was good but I don't think I enjoyed it as much as I could have because of course as seems to be the norm for them they only came on at 11:15pm so they didn't finish until 2:15am and I was so tired and we had to get up for work and school runs the next day so we eventually gave up and left just after 1:30am.  Maybe if it had of been a weekend I could have coped with it better but I am clearly to old for that because I was shattered the whole of yesterday lol.  The actual music, sound and lighting was really good but I felt there were way too many instrumentals in between songs.  Yes the people doing the instrumentals are amazingly talented but there were just too many!  Anyway here are a few photos from the night.  We were sat way at the back because we like a direct view and I only took the small camera because I didn't want to lug the big one around so the pictures aren't amazing but I still like to take some each time!

This was how it opened!

 This is one of the times Axl looked more normal with just a hat on, he has taken to wearing some very strange hats and glasses with a handle bar moustache.  I couldn't stand the look, he looked 100 times better the couple of times he ditched them!


There were lots of effects and fire puffs etc

Thin Lizzy was the opening act and they were really good :)

All in all the concert was good and definitely something I wanted to experience as after all it was Guns n Roses (well a couple of them anyway!) but I don't think I would go again as I don't think there is any appreciation for the fans, especially as about 6000 apparently left way before the end because it was just too late!  What I am really looking forward to is the Nickelback concert we have booked for November and they have Daughtry supporting them which is another of my favourite bands :)

Hello Sunshine!

Well I have definitely been MIA again, my little sister and her husband have been visiting from South Africa so I was spending time with them and didn't do much scrapbooking!  They have now gone back home and left just in time for Summer to finally arrive!  The day after they left the sun came out and has stayed out.  I am a bit late uploading this layout but it was meant to be as clearly I was waiting for the sunshine because I have used the new Bo Bunny Hello Sunshine range!

This layout was done for the Field Trip Friday post on the Bo Bunny blog and we were supposed to scrap or make something we didn't normally scrap or make and step out of our comfort zone.  As I have scrapped most things and often do off the page things I decided to try and do a 'white space' layout.  I love layouts with lots of white space but if I look at my layouts it is not something I really do as I always find myself spreading out across the page.  

 Bo Bunny Products:
Patterned paper : Breezy, Stripe/Hello Sunshine
6x6 Paper pad : Hello Sunshine
Stickers : Hello Sunshine Lazy Days Cardstock Sticker
Chipboard : Hello Sunshine 12x12 Chipboard
Trinkets : Hello Sunshine
Jewels : Hello Sunshine
Petals : Hello Sunshine

I did struggle a bit as I really just kept wanting to spread out and add more items to the page!  I was very good though and made myself stop and leave it and really enjoyed doing the layout in the end and will definitely be doing some more like this! :)

I just had to share what I found when I opened a new butter this morning!

 Hee hee too cute and just to prove I didn't do it, this is the lid!

Anyway I hope that is a sign that today will be a good day because we have had a good few stressful ones recently!   I hope everyone else has a lovely day today and a fantabulous weekend too! :) :)

I hope all my UK friends had a lovely long weekend!  I currently have my little sister visiting for a few weeks from South Africa and we have been having lots of fun catching up with each other again after a year and a half apart!  But that does mean not much time for scrapping and blog hopping!  I do however have a layout to share today using Bo Bunny's new Camp-A-Lot range!  At the moment Bo Bunny is having a little designer showcase every Wednesday with one of our layouts and today is my day.  So as my box of yumminess arrived last week I was able to use one of the new ranges!!

These papers were perfect for these photos of my boys climbing trees in the local country park :)  I had lots of fun cutting up the paper to make my branch and to give the logs some dimension.

Bo Bunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper : Fireflies, Dot, Firewood, Leaves, Squares, In The Woods/Camp-A-Lot
Chipboard : Camp-A-Lot

There are a few more photos on the Bo Bunny Blog.
