Hi everyone, been gone a while again.  Things have been totally crazy around here as usual and one of the reasons is hubby has been offered a job on the other side of the country and we have decided to move!  So we have been sorting the house out and having agents over and now we just have to quickly sell our house in a very bad market :)  Sadly we also lost a family member last week that has affected the whole family greatly.

Today I am sharing a layout done with the new Surprise range from Bo Bunny and some of the yummy new background stamps.  I am so in love with all the new background stamps because they are have that distressed kind of look, I am so in heaven and I can't wait to try all of them out!

Bo Bunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper : Surprise!, Twist, Banners/Surprise
Stickers : Surprise! Combo Sticker
Buttons : Surprise! buttons
Chipboard : Surprise! 12x12 Chipboard
Stamps : Geometric Patterns Stamps; On This Day Stamps 

I also decided to have a haircut last week.  My life is generally pretty stressful and I decided that any little thing that will make my life easier is worth it and shorter hair probably will make things a bit quicker!  So this is my hair before which was just past my waist.

I kept the hair they cut off and am donating it to a cancer charity and this is my hair now.  Everyone keeps telling me it makes me look younger but I think it makes me look older and like a grown up lol.  Whatever the hairdresser had put into it also made it look really dark so I now know what I would look like with darker hair :)

Finally for today....everyone loves Scrapbook Trends right?  Well Bo Bunny is giving away a year long subscription to Scrapbook Trends!  All you have to do is follow the Bo Bunny Blog and leave a comment on this post here.  You can also find a wonderful tutorial for colouring doilies by the amazing Juliana Michaels on the same post :)
