It's Hot Outside!!


It's been crazy hot here in St.Louis!

Temperatures in the 100's with heat indexes that push us into the 110's and higher. Plus you know the added benefit of living in the midwest combined with heat....HUMIDITY!

Ugh...why do I even bother having a hairstyle? I really need someone to teach me some adorable ways to make up styles....desperately!

Anyone have any great tips and ways to upstyle hair and make it look cute without totally messy?? I'd love to hear any ideas. many of you know I recently lost my job with Bo Bunny. Kind of takes the spark out of you and the spark out of creating and crafting. But thanks to Lori and Imaginisce I got to play with their newest lines and make a few layouts for them for CHA. Here's a peek at those layouts...please keep in mind I was working with prototypes of stickers and such so many are just cutouts.

*I cut the clouds out from the Happily Ever After paper and popped those up with the 3D foam. I hand cut an additional cloud to add in as everything looks best in 3's. The i-rock unreal! Added studs to the butterfly and created a trail from the butterfly to show movement. I added additional studs to the paper flower centers sprinkled all over the page.

A BIG thank you to Imaginisce for letting me play with their amazing products! Be sure to go see all their new lines as they do ROCK!

A final note...for those that would love to pick up some great deals on Bo Bunny products...I have listed a good amount of auctions this and last week on Ebay. It's not that I don't love the's just that I don't have a paycheck and's going to be a bit before I plan to pick up Bo Bunny products to use in my crafts. So if you're's a link to go see those. I have more to list this week. If you have any questions about them...just give me a shout!

Happy Crafting!
