October kit for Designing Memories

I was so happy to be a guest designer for Designing Memories and work with their October kit, along with Jill Geraghty Groves, also a guest designer for the month. Thank you Katja for asking me. Be sure to look through the Designing Memories gallery for lots of great scrapping ideas. Thought I'd share the layouts and cards using all the lovely products from the kit.

First layout uses a new favourite photo I snapped of Emily a few weeks back, not great lighting, but I love the expression is captured. At the moment her life is so good, she is achieving such wonderful things, and is so happy... just wanted to record those thoughts.

Next layout is of our cute little bunnies... they have been living with us now for four years. Wish I could say they are achieving wonderful things too, but their biggest achievement is being cute and fluffy.

And a couple of cards using lots of embellishments included in the kit for decoration.

a few more Maya Road sneaky peeks for CHA

A couple more projects for Maya Road...

The first one uses the Maya Road scalloped accoridan chipboard book, released earlier this year. The new sneaky peek on this project is the little pink chipboard hearts. These are a very cute size, and I received some pink hearts to play with recently from the MR girls. I've covered them with Kindyglitz and then applied a glossy sealer.

Now, next, is one of the NEW sheer books Maya Road is releasing at CHA-S. Lots of fun using this one, being a bit creative with the attachment of photos and embellishments!

Bunny Business

Hope you have all had a lovely Easter weekend.

Thank you for all your lovely comments and Easter wishes. We (that's me and my girls) have enjoyed reading through all the comments you have left here on my blog over the last week.

Now onto bunny business, as Mel called it. I had over 50 names to pop in the draw, so I decided to make another bunny, to give you two chances of winning a mini moopy!

And now, here we have the official draw. My two lovely assistants were more than willing to help choose the new owners of the bunnies.

{Here's the link to the video in case you can't view it direct from the blog}

Big CONGRATULATIONS to Tara and Nikky Dalton. A mini moopy bunny will be hopping it's way to your house very soon. Girls, could you please email me your postal addresses.

Thank you again for joining in the bunny fun here on my blog. I really do wish I could have made enough for everyone to share the bunny love.

Hope you have a great week.

Cheers

mini moopy bunnies and a RAK

Thank you to everyone who has left gorgeous comments about the felt mini moopy bunnies I have made in the post below. I have read them all, and appreciate you taking the time to leave a message.

I also mentioned that my bunny making partner was Melissa Goodsell. I'm please to say Mel has now completed a couple of her bunnies and you can see them over on her blog.

Soooo, to spread the bunny love around, Melissa Goodsell and I (well it was Mel's idea originally) have decided to each give one of our bunnies away as RAKs. I'll make one up over the weekend, so not sure what the colour combination it will be, but I'll have one similar to the bunnies below.

All you have to do is leave a comment, either here or on the post below, and I'll put everyone's name in a hat on Sunday night and pull out a winner. If you've already posted a comment, no need to leave another comment, your name is already entered.

Don't forget to pop over to Melissa's blog and leave a comment too. That way you'll double your chances of winning a bunny!

Also, a few people have emailed me regarding the mini moopy bunny pattern. The pattern was originally available on the Nest Studio blog. It doesn't seem to be there anymore. This is not my pattern and not my original design and, therefore, I'm not in a position to distribute. I hope you understand. All I can suggest is you contact the talented people at Nest Studio with any questions you have about the mini moopy bunny.

Edited 5 April 2007: Carly from the Nest Studio blog has updated information about the Mini Moopy Bunny Pattern. She has it available through her Etsy store, see her blog for details.

Good luck and thank again for visiting my blog.

felt, buttons and thread

That's what we surrounded ourselves in this weekend.... felt, buttons and thread.

It all started several weeks back while exchanging emails with the gorgeous Mel Goodsell. She reminded me of the WEE WONDERFUL bunnies we made Easter last year (see here and here). We decided to go searching into the big wide web world, looking for bunny patterns to make this year. We found two patterns we liked. I chose the Mini Moopy Bunny from Nest Studio, and immediately thought it would be fun to make out of felt.

On Saturday Emily and I went to our new local-ish Lincraft store up at Belrose. Armed with our bunny pattern we picked out our felt in several coordinating colors, matching buttons for the eyes and embroidery thread.

Emily, Phoebe and I have all been busy sewing our Mini Moopy Bunnies over the weekend {well, in between soccer games, band rehearsal, cricket trophy presentation, school disco and an endless stream of friends over for play dates}. The girls are getting very good at straight stitch, they stitched around the arms, legs and ears of their bunnies.

So, I'd like to introduce to you the latest additions to our bunny family. Emily's two are the red/navy bunny, named Sailor Sally, and the purple bunny who is called Cindy. Phoebe's two bunnies are yet to be named (the pink/brown and the blue bunnies). Despite being nameless, the blue bunny did marry Marty bear over the weekend.

And of course, all bunnies need a tail....

I have some more already cut out, ready to be sewn. So we could have a bunny population explosion here over the next week. Just in time for Easter!

Thanks for visiting and reading this far.

Have a great week.

Bandaged Bubbles

Our quiet, peaceful Saturday morning was disturbed by the one and only Bubbles.

This morning Phoebe appeared with Bubbles in her arms with blood all over her little paw. We raced her to the vets, which is thankfully at the end of our street. A broken claw/nail was the cause. Won't go into details. Bubbles was cleaned up, checked and bandaged. Our challenge is to keep the bandage on for 24 hours. This will be interesting as all rabbits do is eat anything and everything that is near to them. Bubbles has been caught several times during the day tugging madly at the yellow bandage. Poor little thing. The vet has promised a full recovery.

Have a good Saturday everyone!
