This is a Bo Bunny class kit I purchased at our local scrapbook store. They had leftover kits on sale from classes they held. The great thing about kits is, even if you're not feeling especially creative, you know everything will coordinate and look really nice when done. They give measurements for you to cut the paper and step-by-step instructions. Some kits come with the paper already cut to size and numbered on back with the pages they go to.

I didn't follow the instructions to the letter. Because the papers all coordinated, I was able to use leftover scraps and put them on various pages in the book. I used a couple of coffee cup brads.

I'm uploading several pictures, so hold on! :D

I goofed with my pigment ink - that is the shiny silver on the cover.

I got mine. ;) Actually, Howie likes to say I had no choice since the whole time I said I just wanted to be friends, he was praying that my heart would turn and I would love him.
