About A Boy (SATW June Challenge)

If you're addicted to everything scrapbook like i am, you've probably heard by now of the new and exciting challenge blog, founded by one of my fave scrap ladies, Helen Tilbury from South Africa.

Helen has gathered some of the best designers from all over the globe to inspire us with a mood board and a sketch each month.

I wasn't able to play along with their first challenge last month, but there was no way i would miss the June challenge.  And let's not forget some fantastic and generous sponsors!

Take a look at the inspiration for June!

Being a huge Bo Bunny fan, when i saw these images, i couldn't help but think of the Mama-razzi 2 collection i bought a couple months ago.  It wouldn't surprise me if i wasn't the only one whose muse started chanting Bo Bunny at first sight of this mood board because Mama-razzi 2 seems to be the perfect match, in theme and color, to some of these pictures.

Here is my creation:

I incorporated many elements from the sketch into my double-page layout:
banners, flags, paint splatters, stamped circles, etc...

The vintage-style pictures of my friend Nath's son Tristan are just so adorable and complement perfectly the ecclectic, retro feel of the mood board and the Bo Bunny embellishments.

I love these chipboard stickers from Mama-razzi 2!

I used Bo Bunny stamps on top of masking to distress the look of my background a bit, and topped it all off with splatters of copper-colored paint.


If you were inspired to play along with this challenge, you still have until June 25th to link up your creation right HERE on the SATW blog!
