Bo Bunny & Turtles

So how was everyone's Easter?  We had a great time with my family and got some good family photos.  But first, here are a few Bo Bunny projects from recently.  This first one is the current April Mini Album class using the Country Garden collection.  Kris posted the first video class in the series on the Bo Bunny Blog today and you can check it out HERE.  She shows you how to create the cover and first 3 pages.

During the video, she asked about what the 17turtles means. Well, the 17 is the day of my birthday in May and the turtles is because I love turtles!  That's all...kind of simple huh?!

My next project is a layout I created using mostly Bo Bunny's Double Dot papers.  If you haven't seen them, the new Vintage Dot are amazingly yummy!  Distressed dot on one side and a gorgeous swirled pattern on the other side.  And it comes in 20 fabulous colors!!! I created yellow part of the flowers using a Cuttlebug Quilling Die from Provo Craft called the Scallop Rosette.  The centers are created from a Stampin' Up punch.  After I punched them out, I lightly misted the flowers, wrinkled them and let them dry.  I then glued them to the center of the scallop rosette.  The leaves are from another Cuttlebug Quilling Die called the Rose/Carnation.

This final project is an altered project from March that I lovingly referred to as my Garden Angel!  It is covered with the gorgeous Country Garden collection including papers, buttons and rubons!

Look at that sweet little face! I used gesso to create the texture for her hair.  The buttons are little black pearls!

And here are a couple photos from my Easter weekend...
