Focus on Brads and a Guest Designer!

Hello Bo Bunny fans!  In today's post we are focusing on Brads.  Brads have been around in scrapbooking forever, well definitely as long as I have been scrapbooking!  Their popularity has been up and down and up again over the years but they have definitely stuck around.  They are such a handy little item and can be used in various ways from attaching items to your page, to flower centres to random decorative elements and everything in between!  Bo Bunny has quite a range of brads and each pack comes with various different designs and shapes to suit any project.

Let's see what the designers have come up with for us today using brads but first onto our exciting news!  We have a wonderful guest designer joining us for the Summer and I am sure that many of you will know her, I know the design team were thrilled she was joining us.  She is one of the sweetest people ever, and a complete superwoman with all she does so please help us welcome Julie Tucker-Wolek!

My name is Julie Tucker-Wolek and I have been scrapping since my son was born 15 years ago, but really got into it as a major passion about 6 years ago when my daughter was born. I create everything! Cards, layouts and altered projects! I have been a Bo Bunny fan for as long as I can remember! In fact, the owners of (who I am the DT coordinator for), tells me when there is NEW Bo Bunny in the store, cause they know I will WANT it! lol!! And one of the main reasons I know that I am a HUGE Bo Bunny fan -- my daughter named her little bunny she got for Easter, "Mini Bo Bunny!" lol!! Gotta love it! I am THRILLED to be here with the Bo Bunny team for the summer, they are amazing, and I am honored to be guesting for them!!

This is Julie and her adorable daughter Brookie.

Now onto the design team layouts, starting with Julie who has used the beautiful new Little Miss range, perfect for these cute photos of her little girl.
