Each month with our amazing kits, we get a sketch from our very own super talented and always inspiring Charlotte (SuePup). I love working with these sketches and when your mojo needs a boost they will always give it a jump start. 

Here is this month's sketch: 

And here is my take on the sketch:

I am not normally a yellow person, but I have to say, I may have changed my mind-lol! I loved how the yellow background made everything just pop! 

Items I used from this month's kit and add ons:
Main Kit- Bo Bunny Serenade Pendant and Sunrise Papers, Kaisercraft Hint Paper, and Bo Bunny Serenade Stickers
Romance Add On- Prima SIIC Welcome To Paris, 
Flora & Fauna Add On-Petaloo Canterbury Charcoal Flowers, Bo Bunny Wilberry Dahlias
Color Add On-Ranger Studio Brushes

I used a Crafter's Template and black puff paint to create the clock faces in the background, and the butterflies are Cherry Crush Glitter Glass Butterflies from my Etsy shop~Reneabouquets~

This next layout features a photo titled "Nimue"  of one of my artist friends Meli, her link: Meli is one of those unique and totally beautiful people that I have met along this journey that I call my life, and I love scrapping her amazing art.

Items I used from this month's Kit and Add On's:
Main Kit-Bo Bunny Serenade Dragonfly Paper (front and back sides), Bo Bunny Wildberry Zinnias, Kaisercraft Secret Bird Society Rub Ons, Handcrafted Dragonfly
Paper Add On-Bo Bunny Serenade Cut Outs
Romance Add On- Bo Bunny Serenade Trinkets, Petaloo Color Me Crazy Gates, Graphic 45 Birdsong Chipboard
Flora & Fauna Add On-Bo Bunny Natural Earth Pansy, Petaloo Canterbury Rose Charcoal, Petaloo Canterbury Vine Spray
Color Add On-Ranger Brushes, Studio Dash Of Red Acrylic Paint
Creativity Kit- Dylussions Stencil Dotted Flowers

This next layout features one of my favorite subjects to scrap, my son Draven. Can you believe he is a Junior this year??! I can't believe how fast it has gone, and we just started visiting colleges over his Fall break, and it really hit me that he will be going away to college in a year and 1/2. A part of me is sad, but the other part is so excited to see him turn into a fine young man, and make his own way in this world. The photo is one that my sis, Tammy took of him when they were Downtown taking photos together, so thank you Sis!!

Items I used from this month's Kit and Add On's:
Main Kit-Bo Bunny Serenade, Garden, Trellis, Combo Stickers Papers, Kaisercraft  Wooden Letters, Kaisercraft Secret Bird Society Rub Ons
Romance Add On-Bo Bunny Serenade Trinkets, Dylussions Lemon Zest Mist
Flora & Fauna Add On-Bo Bunny Wild berry Dahlias and Natural Earth Pansies
Color Add On-Ranger Distress Clear Rock Candy, Studio yellow pastel, and dash of red acrylic paint, Ranger Paint Brushes

This last project is one that I did using the Scraps of Elegance November Kit-Je t' aime. It is an altered memory box and stationary set.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit, and I am so glad that you could join us for the hop!! Your next stop is with my super talented sister, Karen Zueger-, and I just know that she has something spectacular in store for you!!! Big Hugs ~Renea
