Bun Bun Layout

I started off with a sheet of cloud paper from Erin Lee Creative.

I used a stamp set from Hero Arts called Simple Things to stamp the house and the sentiment.

I colored the house using a few Copics and some Stampin Up Markers.
I cut the sentiment out with my Oval Nestabilities.

The stickers of the bee, butterfly, and bunny are from an EK Success sticker sheet.  

"Bun Bun" is spelled using some Thickers.

The grass along the bottom is using some Stampin' Up paper with a subtle dot pattern on it and it's punched with the Martha Stewart Grass punch.

To create a journaling spot I used a couple of die cut brackets by Doodlebug.  It's from their Welcome Home collection and they call these die cut sheets Cute Cuts.  I attached 2 brackets to some white paper that I cut to the width of the brackets.  I trimmed away the excess paper so that the brackets form a frame & added a few more stickers from EK Success to the top.

Our Back Yard is on another Doodlebug Cute Cut and spelled out using some letter stickers from my stash.

I added some Stampin' Up ribbon that I pleated.

The photo mats along the bottom are 3 and 1/2 by 4 and 1/4.  When I put the photos in I will probably leave about 1/4 inch size difference so that a border of that color shows like a frame for each of the photos.

This is actually a scrapbook page about a little bunny that lives in our yard.  I've become really attached to the little critter and watch out the window to see him nibbling grass, scratching his ears, etc.  I get such joy out of watching him, and my son adores him as well - loving to sit in my lap pointing over and over again saying "Bunny, Bunny"  
I have been feeling really frustrated with my scrapbooking lately so I decided to scrapbook something fun that I happened to feel inspired by last night.  
Our yard is ugly, really - it looks like nature threw up with everything unkept and horribly planned.  We are slowly working to fix it, but time and money are always hard to come by.  This little bunny has given me a real appreciation for our yard even as it is.  He's a great reminder to stop, take a breath, and just enjoy a moment.  My backyard might be ugly, but it's got an adorable little critter that calls it home.

Thanks so much for visiting!!!  Truly, from the bottom of my heart I appreciate those that stop by.  It's  a bright spot in my days to share my creativity and learn from other bloggers, gals on the messageboards, etc.

Have a crafty day :)

What a wonderful layout. I love everything about it amber. I get discouraged with my yard too. My hubby won't let me help with the yard cause its on a steep hill, since my fall in 2007 it took me about 2 years to get up right and walk fairly descent. He prefers me to stay safe.

This is such a great layout! It's so fun, and the stamping is amazing!! At my old house we had such a problem with our back yard. Time and money was never on our side, and it just kept looking worse with every day.

You are such an amazing scrapbooker, card maker, and all around creative person. I look at your blog everyday, although some times I don't have the time to leave a comment, I am always here! I wish I had half the talent that you have! I look up to you so much, not just for your creativity but for the person you are!! said...

So cute!

Bun Bun was the name of my bunny as a child. When I saw this post I thought of her and all the fun we had.
