Keep Calm and Craft On -- featuring Lily Bee and Bo Bunny :)

Hi everyone :) 

The One Little Word blog is back this month with two words -- Dream and Calm - and I thought I would play along :)

Here is my take on calm :) 



I used some Lily Bee papers, EAD Designs Stickerz, Kaiser Craft goodies and Little Yellow Bicycle :) 






This is a photo of me altering a chair that belonged to my Dad when he was a kid :)  I love to go to yard sales, estate sales and antique stores ... and USUALLY not to buy something for what it is -- rather I look to see what I can ALTER it into :) 




And here is my take on Dream :) 





I don't know if you can tell here or not -- but under the title is tiny alphas -- the collection I used came with these tiny alpha stickers that I KNEW I would NEVER use --- so I used the whole sticker area as a background :)



I used Bo Bunny's Little Miss on my page :)






Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  6. Such fabulous layouts, Julie! I absolutely adore your Dream On page with Miss Brookie! Oh, my, doesn't she look just exactly like that adorable sticker? Love the little puppies on there, too, and LOVE how you used that sheet of tiny alphas behind your title. That is very clever! And I really adore your craft page, too. Great mix of papers and you are rocking that border die cut down the side. The little gnome is a total unexpected touch of whimsy. Really makes me smile!
