Crazy in a good way!

OK...so sometimes life gets a little crazy! But in a good way!
We may have finally sold our home.  It is supposed to close at the end of this month!  Yay!!!
Now we can finally start looking a bit more seriously for our own home.  Apartment living is just not for us.  We are beginning to feel a bit cramped and it would be nice to have a place for all of our stuff so that it doesn't have to be put into storage.  We are keeping our fingers crossed that things work out...at least for sure about selling our home. Any good thoughts are greatly appreciated!

As for scrapping, I have been doing a lot of it.  Some for assignments and some just for fun.  I am really excited to have had the opportunity recently to work with products from Grafix.  They make all kinds of fun products including shrink film, metallic foil board, rub on transfer film and all kinds of plastic films.  ALL of their products work really well with the Cricut and the Cuttlebug.  I personally really enjoyed playing with their metallic foil board and shrink film.  Shrink film by the way, is highly addictive!!! I would love to show you some of my projects, but they are going to be using them for things and so I can't share them right now any way.  But hopefully soon.

For now I have a Bo Bunny layout to share with you.  Carin McDonough (a fellow BB DT member) created an awesome sketch for us (and you) to play along with.  If you are interested in playing along stop by the Bo Bunny blog HERE for all the details.  If you do create a layout inspired by the sketch, make sure you link it up for a chance to win a Bo Bunny prize package.  While you are there, you can also see how the sketch inspired some of the other designers.

So, anyway, here is what I created.  I pretty much followed the sketch as it was.  I loved the design and I had recently seen a similar layered scallop border on a layout somewhere that I had been wanting to try, so it all just went into place for me. 

I used a bunch of trinkets and brads from various Bo Bunny collections.  I love the texture they give to the layout without adding a lot of bulk.

I have also had a chance to play with Garden Girl, Sweet Tooth and Fabulous Fall!  You can be on the look out for some projects this month from me using them.


In other scrappy news, I also just got some of the new Jillibean Soup papers, stickers and corrugated alphas and I CAN NOT wait to play with them!  They are just sitting there calling my name and the lack of time to play with them is driving me crazy!

Hope you all are having a great week!
Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your comments and your visits!
HUGS!
