Doodling and a Countdown!

Well it has been a while since my last post again for various reasons although to be honest I have not had all that much time to scrapbook anyway so I have only really been working on a commission and not much else!  Unfortunately I also had a car accident a few days ago so have been too sore to scrapbook since then too.  Luckily I just have whiplash, lots of bruises and a couple of pulled muscles but unfortunately I can't say the same about my little car :(  Anyone who knows me well will know how much I love my little car, Paul always jokes that if he had to win the lottery he wouldn't bother buying me a new car because I love mine too much :)   Anyway the guy who hit me drove into the side of me and did quite a bit of damage including breaking the front axle so now we are just waiting to see whether the insurance will fix it or just scrap it.  I am going to be so traumatised if they scrap it! 

So the only other scrapping I have done is this layout for Bo Bunny where we had to do some doodling.  I always love layouts that people have doodled on and think it adds a wonderful personal touch.  I used Bo Bunny On The Go for it as I thought is was the perfect range to use for doodling!

I also just had to share these photos of my son who is 9 and his little countdown to our holiday in South Africa.  He made it a few weeks ago and everyday he draws a different little face in one of the boxes counting down.

 It is a bit wrinkled from where he scrunched it up one day in a temper tantrum lol but I ironed it out as much as I could for him.
 A few close cute are those planes and the little air traffic controller!

 Just love that luggage truck!
 Here is a close up of a few of the faces, lots of made up ones but also some from Minecraft, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Phineas and Ferb and Portals.  I just love the little explanation next to each week like the 'going soon', 'getting ready' and 'packing the bags'

Isn't it just sooo cute!  I love his enthusiasm and excitement for everything and how he is always drawing something for everything that is currently happening in his life!

Speaking of countdowns we will be leaving for out holiday to South Africa soon so I will probably not be posting for a few weeks again and I am not sure if I will get to post again before we leave.  I plan on doing some bloghopping tomorrow as I have not done that for at least a week and will probably not get to visit anyone while I am away either so don't go doing anything that I would want to see while I am away! ;)

Oriental layouts and New Lines!

First up I am quickly sharing these two layouts that were done for issue 62 of Scrapbook Magazine.  They were for an article where the layouts were all inspired by the softer Oriental look.

Now onto the exciting part!  Bo Bunny's new reveals for CHA started yesterday!  Starting off with a new range of blooms that comes in 5 different styles in 8 different color ways  Blush, Buttercup, Clover, Denim Blue, Harvest Orange, Natural Earth, Plum Purple, and Wildberry.   My favourites are the Zinnia...

                                                                        and the Pansy...
That is not all, they have also brought out a range of lace in the same 8 colour ways!

You can also now get the double dot papers in 6x6 paper pads :)  Today's reveal is the first of the new lines and it is called Serenade, this is a couple of my favourite papers and items.
 Just love these stamps!!!
 Totally adore this album!
