Welcome to Africa!! Store highlight

 In 2008 BoBunny accepted its first invitation from Scrapbooking@aquila
to participate in their Xtravaganza scrapbooking event.  We  met amazing 
scrapbookers from across South Africa as well as neighboring countries joined us.

BoBunny has many dear friends in South Africa and we thank 
Scrapbooking@ Aquila for being fantastic hosts.  Take a moment to view
the pictures of the store, a few projects and some of their talented scrapbookers.

Aquila says:
"We Scrapbook to taste, enjoy and appreciate life twice: once now in the moment and once in retrospection! We dearly cherish this meaningful, creative and therapeutic craft and hobby!"

(I love this store!!)

"We have twice weekly classes on Wednesdays and Saturdays for advanced 
scrappers and beginners. We also do classes for children and kiddies. 
Enquiries and Bookings at the Shop: Tel 012 9916055."

(It's so much fun to see everyone's different versions in the class)

"We personalize all your wedding stationery needs. 
Choose your own materials,  papers, colours and style and we’ll see to the rest. 
We also do special handcrafted cards for all special occasions."

 (I'm lovin' all the double page layouts) 

 "We organize Scrapbooking  X-Travaganzas at Parkview Centre in Pretoria 
on an annual basis in October utilizing 
papers and embellishments from well-known popular manufacturers. 
Please see our website for details."
