Field Trip Friday!

Welcome back to another Field Trip Friday!!  Designing outside of your comfort zone is always challenging and it's no different for the Bo Bunny design team.  It can also be very rewarding, when something you wouldn't normally do turns out fabulous!

Here's what Carin McDonough had to say about her project.
This was hard for me to work out what to do because I often try off the page things and I have scrapped about most things before!I decided to try and do a layout with lots of white space. I have a huge love of patterned paper so if I look at most of my layouts they do tend to have most of the page covered in somthing! I totally adore layouts with lots of white space but do find them hard to do. I really enjoyed doing this layout though even though I kept finding myself trying to spread out and add more stuff all the time and will defintely be doing some more!

This was a challenge!!!!! It is so easy to do what you are comfortable with
I very seldom scrap photos of myself and I "never" sew on my pages! 
I also challenged myself to use more jewels and trinkets!

Designers Tip: To create the heart shapes, I used Bo Bunny's Crush Hot lips Die cut as my template. I traced around it and then cut it out. Simple but effective.
