Family Layouts and Scrap Around the World

Family is not an important thing, it's everything. ~ Michael J. Fox

This quote seems the perfect way to introduce our theme this week on the BoBunny blog - Family. During this time of year we often stop and think about the things we are thankful for and for many people, their family is at the top of that list. Today, our designers are sharing layouts about their families that I am sure will inspire you to create a special tribute to your family as well.

So Happy Together by Lynn Shokoples

"For this layout I chose a photo of my daughter and her family. I loved the pattern on the Duet paper so I fussy cut it out , inked the edges and then glued it to my background paper. I thought it added some depth and a little extra pattern. The stickers sheets are also so perfect to help you find just the right title."

"I love to hide my journaling on my projects. It's fun to find a place to tuck it behind. Here is a close up!" 

"I cut the jewels into two pieces to tuck behind my flower cluster, that way you see more of the jewels."

Memories of Us  by Megan Gourlay

"See that little guy in the front, looking all grown up in his tie?  That's my husband. Isn't he just the cutest wee thing?!  Don't tell him I said that though.  I picked this photo because I was looking at the Zip-A-Dee-Doodle range thinking it looked so 70's to me.  Not because of its colour scheme, but because of the paisley patterns and doodling throughout. This range seemed perfect for the era of the photo,  he's about 5 or 6 here, so thats about 1975/76."

"I've covered up the "All you need is Love" quote that is part of the patterned paper because I didn't want to use this as my title, by following the flow of the pattern across the paper, and arranging my cluster to conceal it.  The trinket is swiped with some white paint to tone down the blackness.  The daisies are actually made up of three flowers that I've split apart. I only used two of them on this layout which will make the flowers go that much further."

"I've punched around two corners of the Journal page and layered it onto black double dot.  The scalloped edge is a piece taken from the Noteworthy collection.  I've also used a mixture of Double Dot Vintage and Stripe to create some die cut flowers."

Beautiful Spirit by Tracee Provis

"My youngest daughter reached 21 this year and she has grown into a gorgeous girl with a beautiful spirit. The Avenues collection is full of vintage clocks and patterns that are a perfect fit for my picture."

"Bo Bunny also produce a fabulous range of stamps. I used one of the texture stamps to create a background for my layout. I then stamped out the number 21 with the Countdown set fussy cut around them and popped up on some foam dots they make a great embellishment."

"The great thing about Bo Bunny collections is you know you can pick any sheet and they all coordinate perfectly, this makes layering up your photo's on your projects like a dream."
