Altered Bo Bunny Travel Board Book - Part 1






Note: Click on each photo for a large version!!!

Here is one of the projects I made on my Scrap Retreat!

While I was running errands the day before my big escape, the owner of the main store that I shop for my scrappy supplies (and copy, and fax, etc.) said she had a proposition for me... She showed me a selection of the Bo Bunny Board Books and said 'If I gave you all the supplies would you make one of these for the store for display?' I got to pick out all the papers and embellishments I wanted to use, plus I get to keep the project after it is displayed, and I 'got' an additional store credit to shop in the future. Now, keep in mind I live in a rural area. By no means am I a 'stand out' artist in the hood. I am just a frequent customer!

I took her up on it. One of my projects was to get our Seattle Trip photos done, so I picked out the 'Travel' Book.. It is packaged as bare naked brown chipboard, just the letters.

This took me about 12 hours to make.. I mod podged the papers to the chipboard, then sanded the edges. Most of the pp and embellies are from the K & Co's Ancestry Line (which I love - and I already have a huge stash for my Walsh Family Album!). Buttons are Basic Grey; ribbon from SU. I also used the SU scallop flower punch. Sorry about the camera flash...

I can only load 5 photos at a time, so this project will be in 2 parts.

Well isn't this Supersonic!!! Are we connected cosmically or something? Sheesh. Didn't you just mention this happening sometimes, I mean for a Shop like my Quilt? Good lordy beeee I just know for a fact we're way more related that simply by blood - which is kind of a lot of related, too.

Cosmic Love, *karendianne.
