Bo Bunny: Non-traditional l/o's made with Themed Papers


I recently had a fun assignment from Bo Bunny to create a layout using traditional or 'themed' papers to make a non-traditional layout. So I chose to use the papers and goodies from their Noel collection to make the above l/o of my oldest daughter Chloe. I even went with a Spring photo to show how this collection can be used for any type of l/o.
TIP: When you are looking to get a non-traditional look to your l/o with themed papers like the Noel collection, choose papers from the collection that are alike in color and go for a monochromatic look. I chose the creamy/gold color papers in the collection to create this page (leaving out the reds & greens keeps the page from looking like a Christmas page).
The large crochetted bloom is from the BoBunny Noel collection as are the papers I used here. The chipboard flourish is one of the exciting new pieces from Dusty Attic Designs! as is the Fleur de Lis border chipboard along the bottom of the l/o. To check out the newest pieces from Dusty Attic come check out this link ~~> DUSTY ATTIC NEW RELEASES ....there are some really awesome new pieces (I just fell in love with the new Vine Border and the Flower Stem...and there are some really cool lace-cut doily circles!). Here are a few close-ups of my page....

Gorgeous, Gabi! I am working with those papers right now for my DT but am doing Christmas mostly. But this would be a great idea to use the golds for anything! Will give it a go!

To enroll in a seminar or workshop like this will cost you thousands of dollars. SPY To take advantage of the tendency, the investor could buy equities just after Halloween and sell them on May Day the following year. What costs will I pay?
