Two page layouts

Today is two page layout day on the Bo Bunny blog. And can I tell you how much I love being on the DT for Bo Bunny??? They are the best company to work for, their products are awesome and the rest of the DT is super talented! Just check out all the two page layouts they created HERE.

I hear from a lot of people that two page layouts hard to do because of so much space to work with. I love them because there is so much space to fill. I like layouts with lots of big photos. So I rarely crop my photos or print them in a smaller size. I the pictures to be the focus of the layout and the papers and embellishments to compliment them. Two page layouts are perfect for that because you can fit lots of big photos. And when you don't crop your photos you save lots of time too!

Here is my two page layout for the Bo Bunny Blog. I used Bo Bunny Learning Curve (a little Cambridge) to create my LO. The pictures were taken in Door County Wisconsin. We found this little farm run by a married couple. All the farm animals were rescued from various farms and situations. Frances loved to feed them from the yellow food bucket. So we called her our little Farmer Frannie! Now when we say we are going to the farm she still asks "Feed animals?"

Have a great night!

And now for my September reveal with the kit:

On this card I made the cut little hanger from some craft wire.

It's card challenge Tuesday!

Today is card challenge day over on the Bo Bunny blog and the challenge is to use a card sketch. Today's card sketch comes to us from the "oh so talented" Patti!

Here is her sketch-

And here is the card I created from the sketch-

I know Christmas is still ways off, but I couldn't resist using the new Noel papers and embellishments. Plus my sweet Frances was born on Christmas day so I love anything Christmas!

You can participate in the sketch challenge by creating a card and uploading it to the Bo Bunny blog. You can also see what the other DT gals did with the sketch. I love how everyone's cards look different even though we used the same sketch. Some rotated the sketch, some made it into a square, but they all look great!

Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Scrapbook Challenges Seasons of Change blog hop! You should have come to my blog from Amy's blog. If you just joined us you can start the hop here at Pamela's blog.

This blog hop is to introduce you to the new, returning and retiring Scrapbook Challenges design team. After a year on the DT it is now time for me to say good bye. I have loved being on the DT and of course Pamela's sketches are the best, but after year I am ready to start some new projects. And of course there are so many talented scrappers out there I felt like I needed to step down and give someone else a chance. I will still be around to work with Pamela's sketches and check in with all the friends I have made over the year.

Pamela created this sketch especially for the blog hop:

And here is my take on the sketch- a card created using the new Bo Bunny Olivia papers.

And now the RAK's involved in the hop!!!

I am offering a RAK to one person who leaves a comment on this post. If you are a follower or become a follower during the hop I will enter your name into the drawing twice! I am not sure what my RAK will be yet, but I promise it will be good!

Everyone who leaves a comment on all the blogs in the hop will be entered into the drawing to win the new "Restoration" line from Crate Paper.

Everyone who does a layout based on the sketch and posts it in the Hop On section on the Scrapbook Challenges forum gets entered into the drawing to win the new "Pixie-Licious" line from Cosmo Cricket, including the 12 x 12 sheet of chipboard.
Everyone who joins the group this weekend gets entered into the drawing for a Prima pack.

My first Bo Bunny project

My first project for the Bo Bunny design team is up on their blog! I can't believe how nervous I am about a little card!! The design team is so great though it's a lot to compare too!

The theme on the blog today is being Thankful and the DT was asked to create some thank you cards. Here is my thank you card created with the new Olivia collection. It is definitely my favorite of the new collections, but followed closely by Whoo-ligans!

I cut out some of the cardstock stickers to make them better fit my card and then layered the cardstock flowers with flowers I cut from the patterned paper.

Stop by the blog and check out the rest of the thank you cards. You won't be disappointed!
