**NEW** Bo Bunny! Country Garden & New Dusty Attic!~LOVE!!

So I had a chance to crack open the NEW Country Garden collection from Bo Bunny!!  Have you seen this collection?  Ohhhh! so beautiful!!  I was in scrappers heaven working with this new collection!  My youngest daughter came in the room to show me the music video for 'Brighter Than the Sun' by Colby Caillat when I was scrapping.  I ended up using the song title and some of the lyrics on the page, between the happy music and the lovely papers I thoroughly enjoyed this scrapping session!  I combined some new Dusty Attic pieces with this collection ...I thought the grasses and vines worked well with the BB papers.  I used the Grass Cluster #1, the Swirl Vine #2 and one of the Ornate frames for this one. 

The focus this week for the Bo Bunny post was to use paper ruffles.  For my page I punched a strip of plain white patterned paper and lightly misted it with water.  Then I crinkled/creased the plain edge to create the ruffle (see below)
Here is the ruffle tucked behind my circle design on my paper....it works just as well on wavey or bracket designs too!  Below are close-ups of the cool new Dusty Attic pieces as well (I simply painted them white and added a touch of green tint with chalk inks.... 



Do you have a favourite song you've been meaning to scrap?  I'd love to hear what they are!  I'm always looking for song titles and lyrics to use on my scrap pages, there is something about scrapping with music that makes me feel  like my page says so much more, do you know what I mean? :)

Oh what a sweet pic of your daughter. I love how you did the butterflies around the circle piece so pretty. Yes I LOVE ALL THE NEW BO BUNNY COLLECTIONS ha, I check everyday to see if the online store I order from has them in yet, it's killing me lol. And totally love scrapping with songs, just did one layout of my son of his graduation pics and used Whitney Houston's "One Moment in Time" for my title I need to get my blog updated (been lazy about it) so I can show off some of my layouts I've done lately. Your blog is such an inspiration, thanks for always taking the time to share :)

You really did such wonderful work with this soft and pretty collection! This layout is gorgeous! I really love the ruffle pleated edges and the way you used the DA chippies to add some natural finishing touches!

Oh yes, I know exactly what you mean, music is a great inspiration for me too.
Titles are great to use, or parts of song lyrics.
I also love to go trough book titles :)
Your page again is a beauty, never tried the ruffle by damping so thanks for the tip!
kind regards, Corina

Beautiful lo. Love the chippies and the paper. I really love the paper ruffle you made. So creative.

I too am inspired by music. I've been mentally working on a lo to go with the lyrics to Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes". Love that song. I really need to get the picture taken and get my papers so I can finish it!

I just had to leave a comment on your beautiful work. I am usually just a lurker, but I can keep silent no longer... your work takes my breath! I want to create an album for my Granddaughter who is getting married in Sept. I am just not a scrapbook person. I just envy your talent so much.
God bless.

Gabi, I've gotten so far behind on your beautiful blog! All of your projects are stunning. I love how you did the punched border, that is really cool, it looks like real lace! And you did beautiful work with the new chippies, I've never used chalk, I will have to try that! You keep inspiring me, and you never stop amazing me!!!! Beautiful work my dear sweet friend!

This is so very lovely! I did a song page just the other day. It's here http://www.flickr.com/photos/35630799@N02/6883780245/ it isn't nearly as pretty as yours though!

Stunning work, Gabi! Your lacy little border is gorgeous and I really do love the stitching and distressing you did with the bright and Springlike Bo Bunny paper! Great DA chippies and embellies you used to create this cheery LO! You ALWAYS put so much time, creativity and heart into every LO you do....and it SHOWS! KUDOS
