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! :) :)

Haha - too cute! Maybe the butter manufacturers are starting to cheer up all their customers!! Better check out the next one too!!! Gosh you have done marvelously with this one - this style really suits you.
