On a Roll with the Bo Bunny's Layout Challenge Friday


Bo Bunny's challenge this week is to create a layout using the title of your Favorite Movie or TV Show.  Just one movie or show?  Impossible.  I've enjoyed so many shows over my life but for this layout I jumped backed to my childhood.  I mean seriously, what girl my age didn't have a crush on Chachi or the Fonz.  I definitely enjoyed my weekly fix of Happy Days although I was never a big fan of Richie's friends.  Anyone else remember the Karate Kid master as the lovable "Arnold?"

Ah, good times.  I wonder what my kids' go to favorite will be when they get older.  So here we have my husband and my oldest at 9 months old.  We flew out to San Diego for one my good friend's wedding and stayed with my Sister.  I loved her back yard.  We just don't get blue like this on the East Coast.  My daughter had a grand time playing around in the water and chewing on her ducky.  I had to reminisce about all the "Happy Days" to try and compete with all the sickness we've been dealing with this past week.  This certainly was a nice switch.  Check out more Summery Goodness from the Bo Bunny Paradise Collection.

I free handed the sun and then pieced it back together on the layout.  The edges are inked with Fired Brick Distress Ink and the top decorated with Liquid Pearls, Lemon Yellow (I think I see a need of more Liquid Pearls in my future).

To add variety to the bottom and give sort of a land/sky effect, I added the striped paper to the bottom.  To keep the flow of the scalloped die cut, I traced the edge onto transparency paper.  After cutting out the border edge, I traced it onto the striped paper, cut and adhered to the scalloped die cut.  The little seagull was from the cream paper and is colored in with Copic markers.

The title tag is created using 3 different Spellbinder Nestabilities shapes.  The middle is inked with 3 Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade and Walnut Stain).  The edges are dotted with Liquid Pearls Baby Blue.  And check out the crab underneath the tag.  I'm proud of him.  He was cream colored when I started working with him, but all day in the sun and look how colorful he is now.

Thanks for stopping by.  And just for kicks, I'm curious what your favorite Movie or TV Show is.  Can't pick just one can you?



  1. Beuatiful layout CHeryl - the crab is so uber cool. Love love love!

  2. holy crap that crab is fantastic. I wouldn't have believed he started out cream colored. And the inking on the center of the title is divine. I never get such even beautiful coverage. Guess I'll need to buy some distress inks, huh? =)
