"somebunny..." by Anthea

Well.  This is it.  My last blog post for this term of  D-Lish.  :(
I have been here for a year now and can honestly say that I have loved every minute of it.  I have had the absolute privilege of working alongside some of the most amazingly talented scrapbookers I know, many of whom have become friends.  I have the bestest boss lady who supports me in pretty much whatever I put my crazy mind to AND I get the opportunity to work with some of the prettiest and versatile products out there.  I also have made many friends, some of whom I am lucky enough to have met in person from The Scrap Suite.  What can I say?  It's a scrapbooker's paradise!
For my last LO I thought I would share this very simple, but I still think pretty LO that I did of my daughter from Easter way back when.  I have always loved this photo of her knocking on the door of my Mum and Dad's place Easter morning, so much so that I actually think this is my second time scrapping it. (I don't often scrap photos more than once, but my style has changed so much over the years so it is likely to be very different.) 

I have had that gorgeous creative cut bunny in my stash for a while now and never quite got the nerve up to use it - I guess I was frightened I wouldn't do it justice.  In the end I just found the photo that I thought would work with it and went for it. 

The first thing I did, after picking the creative cut and photo was pick my papers.  I think a bit of colour in this LO was important as there really isn't that much in the photo. Once I had figured out what papers I wanted, I picked which one I thought would look best behind the bunny. The one I chose I think works because there are so many colours in it.  I did for a second think about backing each opening (on the bunny) separately but the thought of it hurt my head and I dropped the idea quicker than a hot potato.  Scrapping is meant to be fun....not strenuous.  ;)

I then placed my flowers on the corner of the photo.  I didn't want to use too many, because the feature really is the bunny, but I could not go past the Little Birdie Flower as my main flower in my cluster.  The other flowers I used are also from D-lish; one is a carnation and the other one is a cabbage rose.  I also stuck in some little die cuts for leaves to make the cluster look a little more realistic.

I then added my title.  I love the puffy alpha stickers that you can get at D-Lish.  The colours a beautiful and now you can get them in lower case too.  They are quite soft and pliable, so I simply sewed through them a few times above the photo to make them pop.
I then sewed around the whole LO a couple of times to frame it and soften the edges a bit.
I added the gorgeous enamel glitter dots right at the end to bring it all together. 

I really like how this LO turned out and hope I have inspired you to use your creative cuts as a major feature of your page too.  I think this LO goes to show you don't have to do much to make them really pop. 

Before I go, I would like to say thank you to each and everyone of you for your support over the year.  I hope that I have inspired you as much as you have all inspired me.  Until next time - take care and happy scrapping.
