TPV and Bo Bunny


Here is my layout for Bo Bunny's Layout Challenge Friday! I was going to use it for The Paper Variety Snowflake challenge, also. Unfortunately for me and my SLOW DIAL-UP INTERNET!! UGH!! I had it posted here on my blog, but didn't make the deadline to link it up before the Noon deadline!! OH WELL, I tried Abby and Suzanne!! Story of WHY I ran so late is below!
Anyways, I used this sketch:

and here is my take, I flipped it:

I used Bo Bunny's Midnight Frost 6 x 6 Paper pad. The smaller snowflakes are embellishments, larger snowflakes are buttons that I cut the shanks off of, and the buttons are all from my stash. I used a blue pen for my faux stitching around the edges.

I am also using this over at Do You Stack Up. It's a NEW Challenge blog and their first challenge is Cute as a Button! GO OVER and check them out!

I had this layout in mind for a few days and knew that it would be GREAT for several challenges. WELL, I got up EARLY this morning and had it together and photographed in good time. THEN as I was getting ready to edit my pics and upload it, the fluorescent light right above my computer started blinking, I look up and SMOKE is coming out of it!! OMG!! So, I IMMEDIATELY jump up and turn the lights off, call Hubby who had ran to town. So, he comes home and decides the starter in the light has gone bad and since he didn't want to go back to town, he had a 4' light to replace it with and it would only take about 20 minutes to switch it out.
WELL that was 9:30ish. At 11:45 I got freaky and was trying to get my layout uploaded to my blog and then to The Paper Variety! While he is on a ladder over my head making me NERVOUS! By 12:30 I FINALLY have a new light! Then SILLY ME says well the plug-in hasn't been working for a month, could you fix it? YES, SO by 3:00 my scrap room has electricity back to it and I am finally finishing my post that should have been done BEFORE 10 this morning! LOL!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
