Bo Bunny - Country Garden Layout by Charlie Labonte

As a new Grandma to a beautiful Grand Daughter, I am finally getting to play with pink colors and flowers.   Autumn is 5 months old and is already learning to be a camera ham.  I made her Mom an album when she was born so that she could document the first year, each and every month.  This is month 5.   All of the pictures feature Autumn in a frilly outfit and I love it.  She has the biggest eyes and seems to be looking right at you.   

Layout using Bo Bunny's Country Garden Paper line and embellishments, along with Petaloo's Color Me Crazy Chipboard pieces.

1 - I used as my base Tim Holtz's Distress Sage Card stock.  I distress the edges to add some
2 - The next layer was Bo Bunny Country Garden Vines, but I used the reverse side.  I cut one inch off so that the paper would be framed by the card stock
3 - Using one of  Martha Stewart's floral punches, I punched along the outer edge  and taped it down onto the card stock

4 - I layered the picture on pink card stock and then framed it in with Cream Satin pleated ribbon from Maya Road

5 - On the left side, I place a half circle of cream colored crocheted daisy's from Maya Road.  In the center of them I  glued on the little gems from the Country Garden Line.  Next, I glued the daisy's in place. 

6 - Using Petaloo's Color Me Crazy Chipboard Small Frames, I cut the smalles of the frame set into 2 pieces.  I then used paint (Adirondack Shell Pink) and colored them.  While the paint was wet, I covered them with clear embossing powder and used my heat gun to dry them.  Then I taped them in place using Scor-Pal double sided tape

7 - Using Petaloo's Color Me Crazy Chipboard Butterflies, I colored them using Perfect Pearls and then added the gems from the Country Garden line. On the larger piece, I painted the circle and flower and again used embossing powder to give them a nice shine (I over heated them a bit, so be careful of this)

8 - Using the Country Garden Deminsional Stickers, I layered along the bottom of the layout around the Petaloo Butterfly. 

9 - Next, I used the Heaven Sent Card Stock Sticker phrases on the left side
