Hi everyone!  It's me, Gabrielle!  And I'm so honored to be today's pick for the Designer Showcase!  I've been on the Bo Bunny design team for many years now, and I have to say it's been such a delight to be among such a talented group of ladies. People sometimes wonder, what is it like to be on this team?  Take it from me, this is one of the warmest most supportive teams I've ever been on!  The girls here are all so complimentary and encouraging of each other, it's really a happy place to be!  And who wouldn't love working with all these gorgeous products every month, right?!! 
I just love everything Bo Bunny puts out, but for me, my heart beat a little faster when I saw the NEW Little Miss Collection!  The vintage designs and the beautiful colors had me at a glance and of course with 2 girls to scrap this collection just calls out to me!!  I used a variety of "Little Miss" collection goodies for the above page I made of my two girls taken a few years ago.
Patterned Papers: Little Miss (Jaquoya front & reverse side, Maree, Alice)
6x6 Paper Pad: Little Miss
Brads: Little Miss
Jewels: Little Miss
Chipboard: Little Miss
Combo Stickers: Little Miss  
Here are a few close-ups of my page...... 
I have this weakness for bird cage motifs and you find them all over this collection!  For the above page I cut out the bird cages from the 'Maree' paper and used it as an embellishment for my page, adhering it with pop-dots. 
The blooms were handmade by me from scraps of fabric (simple gather), crepe paper streamers (I added a little pink chalk-ink in the centers) and some Bo Bunny Jewels. 
What are some of my favourites from the Bo Bunny collections?  For me it has to be the Trinkets and the Brads....check out the brads in the pic above, Bo Bunny really takes them to new heights, don't they!  And I'm so thrilled that they have now come out with coordinating blooms for each of the collections!!
Since this is my day to share a little something about myself, I thought I would give you all a little sneak peek at my craftroom.  I'm planning to do a tour of my scraproom in a few weeks time but I thought I would give you all tiny glimpse of my scrap space today!  I recently got rid of an old toy closet and some broken shelving I had in my scraproom and put in a nice big shelf system with lots of nooks to store my scrap goodies.  Here is a quick snap I took of what I've got done so far.  ....You'll have to come visit my blog in a few weeks time when I reveal my whole scraproom! 
I hope you enjoyed my little 'share' about me and the things I love today....Here's my question for you!  What is your favourite Bo Bunny Collection....Ambrosia? Hello Sunshine? Campalot? Country Garden?  I'd love to hear what you love!
