Scrap Friends sketch challenge 19

I love the sketches over at Scrap Friends couple that with a DT box full of brand new Bo Bunny papers and the sky's the limit.

Couldn't wait to get started creating! 
I love all the feathers that are around at the moment and this is my first layout incorporating some.
I stuck quite close to the sketch and this is what I came up with

While we were away at the cottage Leon kept falling asleep on his I Pad so created a new app "The I Pillow"!!!

I cut the feathers on my Cameo using the new Head Over Heels collection by Bo Bunny and some vellum, I also stamped the chevron arrows onto vellum and cut them out.
I used both 12 x 12 papers and papers from the 6 x 6 pad from the collection
The stamps I used to create the background are from the Mama Razzi collection.

I added some alphas from Lily Bee and Bo Bunny Zip Dee Doodle to form my title and I cut a cloud from the 6 x 6 pad for it all to rest on
I really like how this one turned out and of course I loved playing with the sketch
Toodle pip for now

Sketchbook 365 December sketch

It is with a little sadness that my last layout for Sketchbook 365 goes live today, but I am over the moon that I get to stay on with them as a Design team member for the magazine Scrapbook 365, so hopefully I can still get to play along from time to time
Here is the sketch for this month, and there is an aweseome prize of Websters pages goodies to be won by one lucky person
This is my interpretation
My sweet little Granddaughter all ready for the first day of the new school year, with her Hello Kitty accessories
Don't forget to check out the other fab pages by the rest of the DT here

Scrap Around the World with Bo Bunny

This month Bo Bunny got to Guest Design at the great challenge site Scrap Around the World. Each month at SATW they have the most fabulous "mood board" which provides inspiration in many ways including a sketch
Some of the Bo Bunny team played along and we were featured on the site here
This was the mood board

And my take
It was notoriously hard to photograph but my background paper is a soft green, that I coated with gesso, when I photographed it it then gave it all those dark shadows.
I was first inspired by the bright colours in the rainbows, when I was looking for a bright photograph I found this one of my daughter with her best friend and the shape she is making with her body looked very much like the shape of a Rainbow . I used elements of the sketch, by mimiking the half circles with machine stitching also the way the title was curved around the half circles. I added the butterflies because like rainbows there are here one minute and gone the next leaving behind a little burst of happiness.

When I was creating the layout I thought to myself that I hadn't seen a Rainbow in a long while and lo and behold when I picked my little Grandaughter up from school the very next week we saw these 2 rainbows, so I snapped a quick pic on my phone.
There is so much inspiration over on the SATW blog it's one not to be missed.

It's Family time with Bo Bunny

I am up on the Bo Bunny blog today with my Family theme layout using The Avenues collection. There is always awesome inspiration over at the BoBunny blog you can check it out HERE

My youngest daughter reached 21 this year and she has grown into a gorgeous girl with a beautiful spirit. The Avenues collection is full of vintage clocks and patterns that are a perfect fit for my picture.

Bo Bunny also produce a fabulous range of stamps, I used one of the texture stamps to create a background for my layout. I then stamped out the number 21 with the Countdown set fussy cut around them and popped up on some foam dots they make a great embellishment.

The great thing about Bo Bunny collections is you know you can pick any sheet and they all coordinate perfectly, this makes layering up your photo's on your projects like a dream.

Bo Bunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper; Clocks, Courtyard, Stripe, Doors, Treasures/The Avenues
Stickers; Misc Me/ The Avenues
Noteworthy; The Avenues
Stamps; Countdown, Stained Textures

A little bit from Halloween

Whilst we don't celebrate Halloween in a big way over here all the kids love to dress up and go trick or treating.
Each year my Granddaughter and her friend come a knocking on my door and as they are "special" they get an extra special treat bag. This year Star's friends little sister was able to join in so of course I had to make a special treat bag for her too. 
Bo Bunny have released some cute Kraft bags, so I decorated one of the chevron ones and I think it looks rather cute

For the older 2 girls I decorated some plain Kraft bags that I bought at the £1 shop
I used almost the same design for these and I like the look of them too
For the other trick or treaters there was this basket of candy complete with eyeball lollipops
I don't usually dress up for the occasion but Star had got ready at my house and she had a little of the white face paint left, so I got creative in the few minutes I had and I looked like this when she knocked on the door
She told her Mum the next day that Nanny had made her night by dressing up, awww she is such a sweetie 
Sorry for the long post, hope you all had a great Halloween
