I created this layout for Bo Bunny Layout Challenge Friday using a beautiful sketch by Sketchabilities:
I enjoyed using these older photos of Grace and Elizabeth. They were taken at Memorial Garden from when we lived in North Carolina.
-Bo Bunny Love Shack Baby, Love Shack Party, Love Shack Shake, and Orange Citrus Dot papers
-Bo Bunny ICandy Jewels
-Bo Bunny ribbon
I drew inspiration from Mich's fabulous layout featured in Scrap-Friendzy's Scraplift "This" or "That" Challenge #7. I love the circles and stitching she used, so instead of stitching on the circles, I created a woven circle around the photos by hand stitching with 2 strands of embroidery floss using a template that I created for this layout. I have uploaded the file at the end of this post in a PNG format that can be sized for your particular layout.
Then in place of the circles, I found a tulip design that I liked and created a template used to hand cut the flower pieces which were then inked and pieced together.
I tried out a new flower design by cutting three nine petal flowers and stamens with my Gazelle. Using water distressing, I crumpled the flower petals and when dried shaped them, then added the stamens topped by an ICandy Jewel. I hope to shoot some close-ups of these and post them tomorrow.
