altered divider

I can't believe September is almost over! What a crazy month! I hope things will slow down for me soon but it isnt looking to promising! Oh well, keeping busy is good for you I guess.
I wanted to share this project with you today! I made it from a little divider thing (these are used to organize recipes or something I think) I altered it by first adding the dictionary paper and then distressing it. I used some white acrylic paint, ink and TH distress tool. I used a little paper tape piece (the blue and red) from the vintage findings mm collection. I added some cute dollar store lace and little letter stickers. I made the flower using a spiral technique (actually quite easy and pretty!) and hand cut the leaves. I added an eyelet to the flower which seves as a spot to clip the little arrow charm to! I love how this looks!
I cut the tiny bingo cards from the TH lost and found paper pad. I added a tiny feather and behind the flower is a found piece cut from some mail (which I distressed)

I glimmer misted and distressed the back of the plain divider. I added a simple paris stamp (used some perfect pearls on it) and the tag/bookmark/fun thing is complete!

Bo Bunny Cambridge - Castle Alcazar

Sorry once again, I have been so incredibly busy there is no time to post! I am hoping to get back into an easier routine soon and share more creations with you. I have a bunch ready to be uploaded, it is only a question of when! This is the other page I made with the Bo Bunny Cambridge collection. It came together quite easilly becuase my pictures were pretty much perfect for the paper!
I cut around the top of the crest on the pattern paper so that the photo could go under it. I added some dimentionals also. There is some glossy accents on the lion images too.
Sorry for the slightly poor photos, taken with my phone again as it was the only option.

BoBunny Cambridge

So sorry I have been MIA for a bit! I assure you I am still crafting away, although not as much as I would like. I have been super busy with school as it is my last year and the teachers are very homework obsessed... I also have been hanging out with friends, working and starting up ringette for the season again. Cant wait to get my craft room organized how I want it! It will be a very long project. I have created this project for a class at the LSS I work at. I needed to used this new BoBunny Cambridge paper because they decided it was "my style". I really enjoyed working with this paper and the pictures I chose fit perfectly! I have done another layout with it and I will post that soon. I used som paint and punched out scallop circles from the patterned paper. I added a mat and some ribbon and it was a really nice, simple layout to create.
I took these photos with my new Blackberry! What do you think?! although not camera quality, I am still very impressed :)
