Stepping it up!

Well, the move into the new house continues to progress along slowly but surely!  Thank you for all the sweet comments about our new home and my new scrappy space. I have yet to be able to get in there to use it, but I know it is going to be wonderful with all of the natural light!

Today, I have a layout to share with you using the recent Bo Bunny Snowfall collection.  As you can see, I did not use the papers for a snow related photo.  In fact, the photo is of DH and I on the shore of Lake Michigan during a recent vacation.  The colors just worked well with my photo and so I went through the papers and choose ones that did not have huge snowflakes or words on them. The striped paper did have some glittered snowflakes, however after I added the paper punching the snowflakes were no longer as noticeable and you just see the glittery blueness!

The addition of butterflies and swirls also help you step away from the notion of the papers being snow themed. I love when you can use a themed collection for more than one purpose!  

When I was asked to design this layout it was for a post entitled "Step It Up".  With that idea in mind, I showed how I took the layout from simple to more elaborate. If you are interested in my process, you can stop by the Bo Bunny blog HERE for all the details.  While there, you can also check out all the new Bo Bunny collections that will be released at the CHA Winter 2012 show.  Do you have a favorite new collection yet?  I would love to hear which one you love the most!  I have a few that are speaking to me loud and clear, but in all honesty each new collection has something that I totally love!  I can't wait to play with them when they arrive on my doorstep!

Thanks as always for your visit and your comments!
