The papers are colorful and fun, in true Bo Bunny style! I loved the bright green color - such a fresh take on the traditional forest green we usually think of at Christmas.This is a two page 12x12 layout using the Bo Bunny papers, red and light blue Bazzill cardstock, Poinsettias and leaves (also by Bazzill). I cut out a couple of cute snowflakes with a Kiwi Lane Designs template, which then I inked in a soft blue and accented with silver glitter. The title is cut with a Cricut using the Zooballoo cartridge.So now that I'm in a festive mood, it's time to start thinking about holiday shopping, LOL! With two little ones to buy for, the shopping can be really fun. :)I hope I've helped get you to start thinking about the holidays. Always remember to take LOTS of photos this time year ~ We couldn't be scrappers without them!

This first layout is titled "Sweetness" and it's perfect for photos of a little girl, favorite cuddly pet or even as an homage to your favorite sweets (cupcakes, anyone?). The patterned paper is by My Mind's Eye and the metal clips are by Making Memories.
The next two layouts are essentially the same, but done in different colors. I used the blues and greens for the Boy Version, and deep pinks and chocolate brown for the Girl Version. These are both titled "Welcome to the Jungle" and are the perfect way to showcase photos of your favorite little monkey child in all their silliness. The papers, rub ons and 3D embellishments are all from DCWV's Animal Crackers line. The vines are cut with my Cricut using the Zooballoo cartridge.
I posted these layouts (and others) for sale in my etsy shop, www.cherishpaperart.etsy.com. I'm also running a special through 10/31/2009: Buy 2 or more items from my shop and your entire order ships for FREE! What a great way to get a jump start on your holiday shopping or to fill up that scrapbook you've been meaning to work on.
Thanks for looking!

This is a less traditional palette - chocolate browns, greys and slate blue, which were done at the request of the graduate. I just love it!
I used Basic Grey's "Granola" paper line, ribbon, stamping, small metal embellishments, felt flowers, paper flowers and a few other odds and ends.
The front inside panel featured a triple=layered photo mat that would hold a 5x7 photo, with the graduate's name spelled out in custom cut letters. It looked great!

In the meantime, I couldn't just SIT there, so I put together this funky little album. It's purse shaped, 6 panels, and I used some retired Junkitz paper. The red and purple, of course, remind me of the Red Hat Society. I didn't want to make it only for that, so I used a general "Sassy/Diva" theme. I wasn't sure I was going to like it, since I'm more of a blue/green/brown kinda gal, but I think it's just so FUN! I'm quite happy with it, it was nice to step away from my color comfort zone.
Now, where is my supply order?!

This was my first attempt at a "hodge podge" album. I don't know if that's an actual term, but that's what I called it. LOL! I basically took a bunch of shaped chipboard albums, took them apart, and mixed up the pieces. Each page of this Friendship album is a different shape, with a butterfly for both the front and back covers. It's kooky, crazy, and really FUN!
Ah, graduation... many moons ago for me, it seems. Here's an album to preserve that much-anticipated event. I tried to keep it more neutral, but I couldn't just look at black and white. I had to add the tan, and then that led me to choose these papers that also have muted navy blues and reds in them. And well, you see how it turned out!
I think that's about it for now. I have lots more photos to post, but need to pack my bags for the long Memorial Day weekend. I'm heading to a motocross track in north Florida for some fun in the mud! Perhaps that will be my next scrapbook theme... hmm...
