Bo Bunny LO Challenge Friday

I thought I'd have a go at a blog challenge. I've never done one before so here goes......This is for the Bo Bunny LO Challenge Friday - I had to draw inspiration from some fabric, I was actually inspired by the dress in the photo, the orange pleats in the dress are mirrored in the paper pleats around the clock face.
I used Bo Bunny Gabrielle promenade, with the Bo Bunny timepiece clockwork die cut - I just thought they went together perfectly. I made the flowers and used a spellbinder die for the cogs.
Hope you like it !!!
Luckily www.paperarts.co.uk has got the new collections from BO Bunny in stock....

This Months Class at PaperArts

This was the class I did this month at www.paperarts.co.uk it was well attended and I think judging by the quiet that descended enjoyed by all. It was nice to do a page that wasn't girly, I'd been looking around at all the Lo's the teachers at PaperArts had done in recent months, and most were girly....as I have 5 boys I thought I should be able to come up with something that didn't have flowers on !!!!

Sue and Irene at www.paperarts.co.uk are getting some kits together to sell very soon, I was asked if I could do some LO's with the kits, so that people had a starting point or could just scraplift.....I think there will be 2 single page kits, 1 two page kit and one mini book....So I look forward to seeing them up on the website ladies....soon.....

Kirsty Wiseman at PaperArts.

Had a fantastic time at www.paperarts.co.uk again today....The fabulous Kirsty Wiseman was teaching this canvas...(slightly different colours but these went better with my photo).....You know me !!!!

We all had such a laugh, and Kirsty didn't even cry, so we must have been well behaved for a change...So all of you that were busy, you really missed out on a brilliant class, but I do believe there will be another whole day of Kirsty in September, with 3 classes..think they'll put the info up on their website with a payment scheme....

Irene, Kirsty and Sue

Day Dreamer

I seem to scrap in no particular order, just which ever photo or sometimes a set of papers takes my fancy...so when I'm asked to do a page for a class or a magazine it's a challenge. Sometimes I don't like the papers or the theme, but actually that makes it more interesting, to create something that I like out of things I don't...

My PaperArts class

Here is that LO that I showed you a sneak peek of a couple of weeks back....I think everybody enjoyed the class, they were all very quiet, but I think they are now used to all the cutting out I make them do!!!! There were 23 in the class, but I reckon we'll be scrapping in the car park if any more are added....but I feel very privileged to have this many people want to scrap at my class!!!
Next months class will be a 'boy LO'. I decided its about time I did one for the boys - girls seem to dominate the Lo's because of all those lovely flowers.
The class after will be one using corner punches, so if you've got some and want some ideas on how to use them keep an eye open at www.paperarts.co.uk for my end of June class.
