Focus on Bo Bunny Et Cetera!

I just love the Bo Bunny Et Cetera Collection!  I love the soft neutral tones in the papers, it allows you to create pages that all have a different look from each other by simply adding a different accent color.  For the page above I chose to go with a soft mauvey pink as my accent color.  

The photo is one I took of my oldest daughter a couple of days ago with our puppy on the front porch.  I'm amazed at how quickly she (the pup) has changed in size and appearance.  She just hit 6 months old but she is already getting BIG!   She's big but totally puppy still (I just bought a new hall carpet that she managed to chew a whole into within 3 days of getting it! Yipes!)

I used a variety of the Et Cetera collection to make up this page including some of the rub-on's that I used on the Dusty Attic Chipboard hinge in the top right corner.  Here are a few close-up's of the layout (I used a die-cut from another collection on one of the Bo Bunny papers (as a template) to make the shaped paper you see in my layout above)....



As you can see in the photo above, I got an interesting effect on the Dusty Attic chipboard hinge (You can find retailers for Dusty Attic in the rightside column of my blog)  by using a Bo Bunny Et Cetera rub-on on it, it gives a nice crisp design.  I then finished it by lightly brushing the edges with some brown chalk ink and then painting on some Tim Holtz 'Rock Candy' (this creates a crackle finish as it dries).

Products used on this page:
Patterned Paper: Et Cetera; Watermark, Symphony, Cut Outs
Stickers: Et Cetera; Live Love Laugh CS Stickers, Just Be You CS Stickers and Combo Sticker sheet (scallop border & title stickers), Rub-on's: Et Cetera (on chipboard hinge), Trinkets: Et Cetera, Chipboard: Et Cetera (title and elements), Jewels: Et Cetera (on hinge, scallop border & circle, medalion), Trim: Et Cetera Wraps.  Hinge: Dusty Attic, Flowers, Butterflies & bling flourishes: Recollections (Michaels Store brand).  Lace: off the roll from a local fabric store.

Here is another page I made a little while back using the Et Cetera collection.  In going through my blogsite I realized I forgot to post this one here (it was posted at the BB blog on a feature spot in the summer)....here you can see a pic of Zoe just a few months back when we first got her.....
