BoBunny Fan Spotlight

Today we are going to spotlight one of you!
Lets here it for...
Ilene Tell! 

Now, lets get to know Ilene...

I was born in Russia, and I came to USA when I was 10 years old. 
I now live in DE, on the border with PA. 
I have been with my husband for almost 15 years and 
we have two adorable kids - a girl and a boy. 

 I love being able to scrap boy layouts, as well as girl layouts! 
I love how scrapbooking adds so much to my life and 
is such a wonderful creative outlet. 
I couldn't live without doing something creative and 
artistic on a regular basis and scrapbooking gives me that
plus the excuse to shop...A LOT!

 I started scrapbooking in 2004, when my daughter was a few months old. 
I had tons of pictures that were too cute to just 
stick in a photo album and put away somewhere.
  Mini albums were my first love - it's what I started out with, 
and I still love to make those. I can't go too long without doing one. 
In the past year or so, I've gotten to love regular 12"x12" 
layouts as well. Nowadays, I alternate between minis and layouts.

What is my favorite BoBunny Collection???  Oh gosh, that's a tough one!! 
I've loved so many over the years, and Bo Bunny was the first 
brand name pp I bought online when I started scrapbooking 
almost 6 years ago. But I have to say, I have a special love for all the 
"swirly" Bo Bunny paper. Beau Jardin was gorgeous. 
Snowy Serenade is probably my favorite pp line of all time, EVER. 
And recently, I really love Peacock Lane - it's swirly AND purple, 
how can I resist!! And the brand new Cambridge pp is gorgeous
as well...as is Old School. 
See - I could go on forever about Bo Bunny pp! 

What inspires Me? Many things - my kids first and foremost, 
our vacations, everyday little things. And of course, beautiful pp!

Whats my favorite movie?  Whose my favorite band? 
I would have to say my absolute favorite movie is Beetlejuice....
I've loved it for a long time! More recently, 
I thought the Lord of the Rings trilogy was outstanding. 
And....don't hate me!....Bruno was hysterical :)
