Bo Bunny Misc Me

I'm up on the Bo Bunny blog with my Misc Me project
Misc Me by Tracee Provis

 I am so excited today to share with you all my Misc Me pages using the fun Zip Dee Doodle collection. My book is based on "Me" and all the things that I love and enjoy. This is the first page of my book, it gives a simple message "It's amazing what we can acheive when we simply Believe" There are some great patterns already on the note paper, so by just adding a couple more of the pieces  you have a page that looks fab.

I used one of the Calendar dividers to make an interactive page to fit more pictures into my book. I fussy cut the tags from the notepaper and used it as an embellishment on the recipe card.

I had such fun plying with all the many elements that come in this collection and I can't wait to add some more pages to my book.

CSI 95 - Solved

We have a new case file open for investigation this week with some soft wintery colours for you to use
I solved the case like this
Book Pages
Tie Something
Textured paper
Tear something
I managed to get all the evidence this week!
Document an old memory
I tucked my journaling on the tag to the left of the picture 

These Blue fluffy slippers were old fashioned even when you wore them over 20 years ago Danielle, but they were your special slippers that you wore at Nanny's when you went to stay for the weekend. You had to wear them right up until you could no longer fit them on your feet and at that point "dolly" had to have them on. Cute little slippers for a cute little girl.

There are some fab prizes to be won this month over at CSI & the more cases you solve the more chances you have of winning. So head on over for some fun detective work

CSI 93 - Solved

Whoops forgot to hit publish on this post lol
For this weeks case file I had the perfect picture, don't you just love it when that happens?

Of course I just had to use Em's fab sketch

Stripe, check or plaid pattern
Mixed media background

 This picture of my youngest daughter and my Grandaughter messing around in a toy car ride both pulling silly faces just about sums them up lol
Expect the Unexpected
That is certainly true when you 2 get together
Years apart yet so similar

Bo Bunny halloween mailbox

I was up on the BoBunny blog with a new project.
 Halloween is such a fun holiday, and the Fright Night collection captures that element perfectly.
I was eager to use it to create something fun to represent the holiday theme, but what to create? I have had the mailbox idea for a while, and by fussy cutting some of the elements from the patterned paper, I knew they would be just right for this mini project.

First of all, I wanted to create a base for my mailbox to sit on, so I layered up some corrugated cardboard and covered it with the Double Dot Chocolate Stripe paper which has a sort of a wood grain effect. I carefully cut the "Boo" banner from the spooky paper and attached it to 2 wooden skewers to hang across the back of the base.

The actual mailbox is cut from Double Dot Shadow Vintage, which is a great quality textured cardstock, both strong and pliable, perfect for mini projects such as these.
Underneath the mailbox is a graveyard, complete with pumpkins gravestones and ghosts. I used a leaf punch to create the grass, and I fussy cut the skeleton and layered it behind the EEK cardstock sticker, which folds down when the box is open.

I used one of the brads from the collection attached some spiders with cotton thread for you to pull open the lid and reveal the haunted village inside.

There are so many great elements to this collection, the possibilities are endless, and I had to stop myself from adding more and more!

Hope you enjoyed looking at my Halloween Mailbox. It was ultra fun to create and of course made easy by using Bo Bunny products.

Scrap Africa

Whilst I was away I was looking for a challenge to play along with
Scrap Africa had this great sketch (of course I changed it up a bit!)
I wanted to make a layout using just the scraps I had accumulated on this holiday and so this layout was born.

This was the sketch (I turned it on its side)

Of course I finished it late at night and now it's back to the type of weather that makes photographing my work nigh on impossible, reminds that I must try and work something out for this winter (any tips would be very helpful)

CSI 92 - Solved

After a short haitus from solving case files I am back, and what a pretty palette we have this week. October is Great Books Month, so that is the theme that will tie all of our Case Files together this month. 
without further ado here  is the case to be solved this week
And here is my take
Book Pages
Handmade Flowers
Stack Elements

My journaling was inspired by the lyrics of a Beatles song To know her is to love her!
To know, know, know her
Is to love, love, love her
Just to see her smile
Makes my life worthwhile
Yes, just to know, know, know her
Is to love, love, love her
ANd I do and I do
And I do

Some close ups
I used some cotton lace to create these flowers (yes I forgot to put a center in this one lol) and I have had these wood veneer feathers for ages waiting for the right layout to use one. 
I cut the adore frame from an old 2009 BoBunny paper Love Notes collection
More wood veneer, the heart is by Freckled Fawn, another lace flower and the rose was in a Papermaze kit. I put my journaling on a tag and tucked it into the chevron glassine bag that I have no clue where it came from lol.
For my background paint splatters I used some pearly watercolours and blew them with an empty pen casing (couldn't find a straw lol)
I scattered a few sequins around for a little shine.

So are you ready for this week's challenge? Grab your forensics kits, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Case File No. 92.
