Glad You Hopped On By!

I'm so excited to share some fun news! I was asked to be May's Guest Deigner for Bo Bunny! I've been busy playing with their gorgeous Love Shack line. The colors and designs are so bright and vibrant and it's been so much fun to use. My projects are going to be posted on their blog on Monday, but here's a little peek at one of them. I made this card using some of the Love Shack papers, some chipboard, buttons and ribbon. The buttons came in the cutest magnetic containers. (Can't wait to show you what I did with one of them!)
I painted and glittered the chipboard and let it hang over the top of the card.




I'm so excited to share the rest of my projects, but you'll have to wait until Monday.

Part of my 'job' as GDT is to tell you a bit about me. In case you don't already 'know' me, I'm a self-proclaimed paper crafting addict. I love to make layouts, cards AND projects. And I'm even getting more into stamping these days! My favorite season is summer and I think that's why I was so drawn to the Love Shack line. (BTW, I have the song running through my head every time I write it. 'Love Shack, baby, that's where it's at...tin roof..rusted...') I grew up on Long Island and spent MANY hours waterskiing on our boat and hanging out at the beach. The beach is still my favorite place to be. Living in Delaware, it's a bit of a drive now, but I can still be there within a couple of hours if needed. I created a fun mini album about one of our beach trips using one of the Bo Bunny acrylic albums. It will be posted on Monday.

I also have a couple of cards that I made using this week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketches. This card is the one I did using Kazan's sketch #25. I love stars, so this one was so fun to do.



The paper is from Webster's new 'The Sweet Life' line and the crystals are Zva.

This next card is based on Savitri's bonus sketch.




The papers are Chatterbox and Pink Paislee. The chipboard is Pink Paislee and the flowers, brad and gems are Zva.

So, if you are doing the Bo Bunny Blog hop, you need to hop back over to their blog and let them know you figured out who I am. You'll be entered into a drawing for some Bo Bunny goodies.

I also wanted to let you know that Jenn has a fun giveaway going on over at the Pursuit of Craftyness blog. Stop over if you want to be entered.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
