Bo Bunny Desing Team Blog Hop

Hi everyone, and welcome to my stop on the Bo Bunny DT blog hop!! I hope you've been enjoying yourselves. You should be coming here from Gabrielle's blog. I thought I'd tell you a little bit about myself, since you're here :)

I never understood what the point of scrapbooking was until my daughter was born, and I thought I'd try it since I had a gazillion adorable pictures I didn't know what to do with. I tried it, I was hooked, and the rest is history, as they say. She's 9 years old now, so it was a pretty long time ago, but I've been having a blast with it. I love to make layouts and mini albums, and I also love to color stamps with Copics and make cards. My style tends to have lots of details and layer, and artsy and vintage elements. I used to paint and draw when I was younger, so scrapbooking is a great outlet for my creative energies, and also a great way to make the most of all our photos. I mainly scrapbooking my family - especially my kids!

I chose this photo since the theme is "Family" and this is a great pic of all 4 of us together. This is just from about a month ago, enjoying a hayride at the pumpkin patch. I love love LOVEE "Autumn Song". It's everything I love about Bo Bunny - gorgeous, rich colors, lots of details and beautiful elements, and swirls and flourishes galore. It matched the photo perfectly!

I used the Autumn Song collection, including the papers, jewels, 12x12 chipboard, brads, and noteworthy. I also used the Bo Bunny Blossoms - Daisy in Harvest Orange and Buttercup colors.

Now, hop on over to the amazingly talented Irene Tan's blog HERE, and enjoy! And don't forget.... make sure you complete the entire hop and then email Bo Bunny with your answers at One winner will be randomly selected from all of the correct answers to receive an amazing "Elf Magic" BoBunny prize package. Good luck :)

Scrap Around The World Challenge!!

Hi guys, this month, Scrap Around The World has another great challenge for you - it's a super happy, colorful mood board and a really cool sketch if you want to use it. Challenge ends November 30th and can be found HERE. Bo Bunny is one of the sponsors for the month and is offering a wonderful prize package of the Silver And Gold collection (just in time for Christmas!). The Bo Bunny DT were invited to play along with the challenge, and it was so fun (you can see all the entires from the Bo Bunny DT HERE), and here is mine:

I loved the bright, happy rainbow colors of the mood board, and I thought they would be perfect for this cheerful, energetic photo. I wrote down all the colors of the rainbow that I wanted to use, and made sure I pulled all the relevant colors from the various Bo Bunny collections - Head Over Heels (red), Autumn Song (yellow and orange), Zip-A-Dee Doodle (blue), and double-dot cardstock (purple and green). I love how well all the lines went together! Also, I made sure to pair up some contrasting colors in close vicinity to one another to create even more pop - orange and purple and green and red, especially.
