Join Us!! For the Bo Bunny Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Bo Bunny Blog Hop!!  As most of you must know by now, the Blog Hop starts at the Bo Bunny Blog and then will continue on the blog sites of 7 of today's featured Bo Bunny Designers.  The Bo Bunny blog will link you to the next designer's blog included in the hop and each designers site will link you to the next.  So if you have come to my site first you may want to hop on over to the Bo Bunny Blog site first and make your way through the list.  I know you will be inspired by the beautiful work of each of our designers! Here is the order of the hop incase any of you have gotten lost along the way....

And now for the Blog Hop prizes! Leave a comment on each designer's blog. Bo Bunny will choose one designer's blog to pick a comment at random. You don't know which blog they will picking from so make sure to leave a comment on them all. To be eligible for the second prize leave a comment on the Bo Bunny blog too as one winner will be chosen at random from the Bo Bunny blog site too.  The winners will be announced next Wednesday on the  Bo Bunny blog.

For my project for the blog hop I thought I would share a layout (above) I made for a Creating Keepsakes ad using the new Barefoot & Bliss collection.   I just love the fun fresh colors in this collection, I could almost smell the beach while working on this layout!  I didn't have all the amazing embellishments that come with this collection at the time of making up this page so I improvised by making some handmade blooms using recycled dryer sheets (lightly tinted with some food coloring & water).  I just cut some strips and gathered the long edges to make the sheer appricot color blooms.  I used some Bo Bunny trinkets and pearls as centers for the blooms.  Here are some close-up pic's of the page....


 I recently got all three of the new Bo Bunny collections in the mail and I can't wait to play and share my projects with you all using these gorgeous collections! 

Okay, ....on to some more inspiration!  Don't forget to leave a comment to be eligible for the prize and then hop on over to see something awesome by my dear friend and team mate, the oh so talented.....

I am stunned at the creativity in your layout!!! I too can smell the beach near my grandmother's house in North Carolina. Fond memories as a child on the beach and walking along the beach at midnight with my college boyfriend. Now if I could make myself switch from liquid softner and use drier sheets just so I could make flowers!
