Bo Bunny Challenge..... & I Made a Sketch!

So my assignment with Bo Bunny this week was to create the layout sketch and create a layout to go with it as well.  Well, I was a little nervous about it, I'm new to making sketches, but with a little trial an error I managed to put a sketch together.  Usually I would make my page first and create a sketch from the page I made but I didn't want the other girls that were doing the assignment to have to wait on my sketch, so the sketch came first.  The above l/o is the page I came up with using my sketch..  I wanted to go a little more monochromatic with this page so I went with some papers from the Bo Bunny Et Cetera collection and tried to stick to neutrals with just a hint of blush pink.  I added just a little bit of Bo Bunny's Timepiece into it too (I love the 6x6 paper pads, I used the clock paper and cut out the clocks to use as embellishments....just added a little Stickles in Platinum color to dress them up a bit)

I also added in a few pieces of my favourite chippies from Dusty Attic too!   The Vintage Keys, the Chicken Wire (that's the last of my chicken wire in my stash! now I'm waiting on my next DT package...can't wait!)  the corner flourish and title chippies are all from Dusty Attic.   The larger blooms are handmade by simply gathering some pieces of lace.  Here are a few close-ups of the page details....

NOTE:  I used Tombow liquid adhesive (green & white bottle) to attach my pearl strand.  I find this works beautifully for adding fussy strands to a page.  All you do is use the fine tip end and draw out the design you would like your pearl strand to go in.  Let the adhesive dry slightly, it becomes gummy/tacky.  You can then lay your pearl strand onto the page over the line and it will stick without slipping!

For the circle design I used the Crafters Workshop circle template and cut the circle design from one of the Bo Bunny patterned papers.  I made marks for my brads and then added some kitchen twine twisted around the brades to create the above design. 
I used a corner stamp and key-hole rub-on from the Bo Bunny Timepiece colletion to dress up the corner of my layout. 
Supplies for this page:
Patterned Paper: Et Cetera - Mail Room, Et Cetera, Symphony, Gabrielle - Cut Outs
Cardstock: Tutu Dot
6x6 Paper Pads: Timepiece (clock face embellishments)
Noteworthy: Et Cetera
Stickers: Et Cetera Combo Stickers
Rub-on's: Timepiece
Trinkets: Gabrielle
Stamps: Timepiece
Buttons: Bo Bunny Buttons & Bling
Blooms were handmade by gathering strips of lace.
Chipboard pieces: Dusty Attic Designs
Lace & Pearl trims are off the roll from local fabric store.
Cheesecloth, twine, ink & Stickles.

If you like the page design please feel free to use my sketch and give it a go!  Here is the sketch for this page...
If you use the sketch design, I'd love it if you drop me a link here in a comment so I can come have a peek!  I'd love to see what you all do with it!  And be sure to drop off a link to your page at the Bo Bunny Blog (by November 3rd) for a chance to win some yummy Bo Bunny goodies!!  xx
