Do What? layout – Sketchy Thursdays challenge entry

Here’s Matthew up close and personal. 😀 These were taken when he was just 2 years old. This kiddo loves the camera (unlike Christian…I’m still trying to get shots of him where he isn’t staring at me like I’m an alien!).

I created this layout based on the 3.03 sketch provided on Sketchy Thursdays for their challenge. Everything you see, except the brown alphas and brown cardstock I used to mat the photos, is from Bo Bunny’s gorgeous Garbielle line. I love this beautiful, detailed line and enjoyed further challenging myself to use what seems at first to be a “girly” range on a boy page. This has been a goal of mine since 95% of my crafty goodies tend to be girly, but I have 4 boys and 1 girl! Here’s what I came up with:


Bo Bunny Gabrielle 12×12 papers
American Crafts Brown cardstock
BB Gabrielle stickers
BB Pet Shop sticker alphas
BB Gabrielle “True Friend” cardstock stickers
BB Gabrielle brad
BB Gabrielle chipboard


Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro PermaTac

Review – Bo Bunny Midnight Frost Collection Pack

I just created a single page, multi-photo layout using the BoBunny Midnight Frost Collection Pack. The package includes 18 sheets of double sided cardstock (2 each of 9 designs) and 1 accessory sheet with alphas and coordinating diecut shapes. This line has such gorgeous, deeply rich colors, that I was very impressed. I love how many of the papers have one side that is more muted and feature a distressed appearance, making them fabulous bases for layering. I also greatly enjoyed the accessory sheet that comes with the papers. Here’s what I created:

For this layout, I used the sketch provided on their blog for their Friday challenge. CLICK HERE if you’d like to create a layout for their challenge too. Hope you enjoy the Midnight Frost collection as much as I did! 😀
