Bo Bunny's Iasabella Collection- I Smile Layout- By Nicolle Kramer

Bo Bunny's Isabella Collection
I Smile Layout

A New Chic Sketch for The Hens' Den designed by Design Team Member: Lori McClellan

Look at the goodies I got to work with this month from Charlie at The Hen's Den.
I love the colors in this collection.

This month we are all sharing our take on the 
I created a layout using the left side of the sketch.

I recently took a picture of my daughter's after they both got their new hair cut. Kayla had her hair cut first. Jolie loved it so much she just had to have her's done. She looks up to her big sister. They are six years apart.  I immediately thought of Kayla when I saw this sticker "I smile because you're my sister. 
I laugh because there is nothing you can do about it." I can totally see my oldest daughter Kayla saying that to Jolie. Kayla is way more outgoing then Jolie. She says things very often before thinking. The whole foot in mouth thing comes to mind when I think of Kayla. I guess I can't blame her for speaking her mind. She's very honest but needs to be more mindful of what she says.  Jolie on the other hand is very shy, quiet and sweet. Both pretty little ladies though.  They both pulled off the short do really well.

I added a bit more to the background using Claudine Hellmuth's Studio Gesso. To get the butterfly effect I used a stencil and dabbed the Gesso on very lightly with a make up sponge. I layered the Bo Bunny Petals and  attached pearls or brads to the center. I fussy cut a couple flower images as well. For an added touch of color to the chipboard flourish I attached 3 pink gems. 

A closer look at my layered flowers. I love dimension on my pages.

For added embellishment to the fussy cut image 
I cut ribbon to mimic the pennants and added a chipboard element.

I would love to see how this sketch inspires you. Please share your take on The Hen's Den  Facebook Page.
