Limited Supplies Layout

For my latest Bo Bunny assignment we were given a limited supply list with which we had to create a layout and then photograph what we had left after we had done our layout.  Our supply list was...

3 pieces of patterned paper
1 piece of cardstock
1 Sticker sheet
1 embellishment pack of our choice (I chose one of the new petals)

We were then allowed staples like ink, paint, thread etc.  This is my layout using the new Hello Sunshine which I just totally adore, it is so bright and happy and just feels like sunshine which due to our total lack of sunshine or Summer in the UK at the moment is very welcome!

This is what was left of my supplies after I had finished my layout.

This is also what I have been doing with all my 'extra' photos.  I always take loads of photos and although I normally narrow it down I still then find it really hard to decide which ones to use on my layouts.  I don't really enjoy doing double pages anymore so this works really well for me as I can scrap the photos I love while still getting to include the ones that I really like and the best bonus is that it is really quick and easy! So I can do my single layout however I want without having to worry about which photos to leave out and then add all the other photos to one of these photo page protectors with some journalling and decoration.   I don't do it for every layout of course but for the ones that have loads of photos this is perfect and I have loads of old photos waiting to be scrapped because I had the problem of too many photos to choose from!

I have also done another sketch for this layout.  Bo Bunny now has a tab at the top of their blog here where they will be putting all their sketches.

After just blog hopping I have just decided to quickly add a few links to giveaways on here!  I have just found Erin Blegen's (one half of the Scrappin Sisters!) blog through the lovely Nadia Cannizzo and she has just started a new blog and is having an amazing giveaway on her blog here.

While I am at it I am also going to include a link to the wonderful Helen Tilbury's blog who is also having a fantastic giveaway!  I have been following Helen's blog for quite a while now and it is always loaded with inspiration and gorgeous work!

That's it for today I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend! :)

Tando Creative Desk Tidy

Just a quick post to share this little Tando Creative desk tidy that I did for an off the page article for issue 61 of the Scrapbook Magazine a few months ago using Basic Grey Picadilly

I decided that I want to randomly put a current favourite song up on my blog so I can remember what I liked when!  My tastes in music vary across a range of music styles so I never know what my current favourite will be.  Anyway this one by Train is the one I am really enjoying listening to at the moment, I find it very catchy and summery and it puts a smile on my face!

More Little Miss

My latest assignment for Bo Bunny was a focus on Little Miss.  This really is such a beautiful and totally adorable range those little girls images in it are just too cute for words!

This was my little sister and myself fooling around in a photo booth when she was over visiting the UK in May.  It did not work like your usual photo booths hence why in the first photo we were still looking up waiting for the instructions!  We then smiled a bit and decided to pull some faces etc but you had no idea when the photos were going off and for some reason it only took photos in between my face pulling when I was laughing at us, so that is why Tammy is pulling faces and I am not!  I have no idea what is with the strange colouring of the photos but the machine produced two copies so we each got one so we were happy! :)

Bo Bunny Supplies : 
Patterned Paper : Jamayka, Hannah, Cut Outs, Dorothy/Little Miss
Cardstock : Coordinating Double Dot in Chocolate dot

I also did a sketch to go along with the layout.  This is my first computerised sketch so doing it was a bit of an adventure lol and did take a while and included lots of frustration!!!

Bo Bunny has also teamed up with Swirlydoos for their blog hop so if you would like to take part for a chance to win some fantastic prizes then head over to the Swirlydoos Blog.  Well that is it for today, I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! :)
