Bo Bunny's Gabrielle

It seems to me that every time Bo Bunny releases their latest collections, I find a favorite. The problem for me is that my favorite changes every time I use a new collection. One day it might be Ad Lib, the next day Gabrielle. Which is exactly how I was feeling when I created these two recent projects. Totally loving Gabrielle! But, I admit that has already changed since I made these! Can anyone blame me?

This layout is of my niece and my mom playing. I would have loved to have gotten a photo of them head on, but sometimes you lose the moment when they realize their photo is being taken, so I went with what I could get.
I did a bit of cut work on this, cutting out the vertical damask image and then layering it behind the photos and with the chipboard and butterfly pieces. I also added a bit of stamping using Versamark with both clear embossing powder and a sparkly powder. They are both subtle and add a small touch to the background. Stamping is one of those things that I enjoy doing, but never totally feel comfortable adding to my layout. I am always afraid I am going to "mess it up". I really need to get over that and just have fun playing with them.

The next thing I want to share with you is a necklace I created using the new Trinkets. I went to Hobby Lobby and found some jewelry hardware, beads and a chain that were similar and put this together. I have to admit, that this was quite fun and something that I would love to try again soon. I am actually wearing this piece of jewelry and it was rather reasonable to create since all the jewelry stuff was on sale for 50% off when I bought it!
Here is a link to the Butterfly beads I used on this necklace if you are interested: Butterfly Beads

Just a quick one today! Thanks for stopping by!
HAPPY HUGS!
