Goodbye Bo Bunny!

Well today is my last official day of being on the Bo Bunny team as tomorrow the new design team will be announced!  As I said in my last post I did not reapply for the team this year even though I have had an amazing three years with them.  Bo Bunny is amazingly generous and getting to work with their beautiful products has been a huge privilege.  I will really miss the wonderful girls on the design team and Kris the design team coordinator, they have truly been an amazing group of really friendly and supportive girls.  So to finish off my term here are quite a few of my favourite Bo Bunny items that I have made over the last three years in no particular order :)




These last two are actually from my design team auditions and they are still some of my favourites today :)

Okay that was quite a few!
I have some ventures I am going to be getting involved in that have been on the back burner for a while and I am looking forward to getting started but I will definitely miss being a part of the Bo Bunny family and will always look back on these three years with fondness :)

Clean and Simple with Trail Mix

Oh my where has the time gone again!  I have been working although as is often the case on nothing I can show at the moment!  This layout was up on the Bo Bunny blog last week but I just haven't managed to blog it yet.  This was a really sad layout for me because it was be my last official layout for Bo Bunny as I didn't reapply for the team :(  I really love that background paper and didn't want to cover too much of it up so I decided to do a really clean and simple layout for this one and I actually really like the result :)

See if you can spot the mistake on that one.  Don't you hate it when your brain is thinking faster than you are writing and you make a silly mistake in your writing, but it was just a little mistake so I decided to just leave it, it adds interest ;)

I just got my latest copy of Scrapbook Magazine and I was very excited to see that my layout is the cover layout again!  As with all Scrapbook Magazine covers I used the very pretty free papers that came with this issue and a photo given to me by Scrapbook Magazine

We are only one day into school holidays and the kids are already driving me a bit crazy! :)  So after a crazy day I think I should go to bed now and will do some blog hopping tomorrow night :)

Heritage with Bo Bunny Anthem

This layout was done for today's post on the Bo Bunny blog and the theme was Heritage.  Now I am not usually a big heritage style scrapper as I really prefer bright colours but I had lot's of fun doing this page using some bright pops of colour.

I had this fantastic photo of my Dad as a teenager receiving the Victor Ludorum at his school gala and I decided I just had to use the Anthem paper range to scrap it as!

Bo Bunny Products Used:
Patterned Paper : Celebration, History, Nation, Peace, Sovereign/Anthem
Chipboard : 12x12 Chipboard/Anthem; 12x12 Chipboard/C'est La Vie
Noteworthy : Anthem
Stamps : Anthem
Buttons : Et Cetera; Timepiece
Stickers : Combo Stickers/Camp-A-Lot

That is it for tonight, I am off to go and melt in bed even with the fan on, instead of on the couch!  Not that I am complaining as it makes me feel all nostalgic for my childhood, roll on more sunshine! :)

Dad Layout

Been a little while again although not tooooo long this time! :)  We have been busy still settling in and enjoying our new home and the beautiful weather!  The kids seem to be settling well into school and we are all really enjoying the stunning area.   We took a trip to Sealife which the kids loved, then caught the 'land train' along the beach to go up in the tower to see the view. 

 He has joined a new cricket team and is doing really well in it and got Man of the Match last week!

I caught a train to Bournemouth this weekend to go and meet up with my besty who was there for the weekend and I haven't seen for ages!  We had a wonderful day chatting, swimming and melting in the sauna and steam room.  This was us eating lunch, everyone thought we were nutters taking photos and laughing like crazy :)

This is my latest layout for Bo Bunny, our theme was Fathers.  The photos are of me and my Dad last year when my parents were on a trip to the UK.  I love these photos because it is not often that my Dad will let you get a photograph of him without covering his head or pulling funny faces!

Patterned Paper: Bird Watching, Field Journal, Lakeside Retreat, Woodland Picnic, Stripe/Trail Mix
Stamps: Trailmix; Wall to Wall Textures Stamp
Chipboard: 12x12 Chipboard/Trail Mix

That's it for today, I hope everyone has a great week and here's hoping all this gorgeous sunshine continues! :)
