Bo Bunny Pet Tails


What an adorable line of paper and goodies for us to create beautiful memories of our 4-legged family members!! So colourful and bright! a must for any pet pages that you are thinking about creating, not just for cats and dogs either! birds, bunnies, horses and so on.
I have done 2 pages, one featuring the cat papers and the 2nd for dogs.


This is Harley, our newest addition. He is quite the handful, in to everything and terrorizes our older cat Riley! They snuggle and play and will spend hours cleaning one another.

Our dog Baillee, Kellee, Jake, Riley and Harley


Very sad to say that 3 of them are gone now, Kellee ( Dalmatian ), Jake ( red Mainecoon ) and Baillee ( Coonhound ) Baillee was our latest loss, at 17 he lived a wonderfully spoiled life! He enjoyed life and gave us nothing but unconditional love and acceptance. He is missed terribly, as are the others but his is more recent and the hurt and loss are still fresh.

March tray Workshop

Wow!! we had a wonderful time yesterday at the tray workshop!
We used a solo tray from 7gypsy, patterned paper pack was Authentique Classique Elegant.



We added some Tim Holtz metal, Bazzill cardstock “ Sea Water” and “Blackbird”. We made handmade roses, did lots of distressing, embossing, added bling, hat pins and tulle.

And to carry this beautiful tray home we made a bag using the Silhouette Cameo, Bazzill cardstock as well as the Sizzix Top Note die. To complete the look we made a paper rosette and added some twine, a pearl and a stamped sentiment.


Layout starring Winnie was such fun!!! We used the sewing machine as well as a bit of hand sewing for that vintage feel.


We cut the scroll border on the Silhouette, gathered some beautiful sheer ribbon, added some hat pins and hand made roses. I think the pointed paper ribbon added that “fun” element, celebrating how beautiful and how much fun Winnie was having in the leaf pile.
