Memorial Day Weekend Bunny Hop!!!

Welcome to another BoBunny hop!!! Although summer does not officially begin for a few more weeks, for me, Memorial Day weekend really seems to kick off the summer...I am looking forward to wading in pools, fishing, family vacation, and ice cold lemonade. I love our small town in that you really do see kids selling lemonade from their homemade stands - what about you? Are there kids setting up stands on corners offering a cold treat on a hot day?

I am so excited for our next BoBunny guest designer... I have been a fan of hers for years and cannot wait to see what she creates with BoBunny.  First, if you happened to just pop over here today, I am going to encourage you to back up and start at square one, on the BoBunny blog. This way you can follow the hop all the way to the end and revelation of our guest designer, and be eligible for the BoBunny prize giveaway- Roughin' It!! Also, you never know what the other designers might be doling out, and you don't want to miss a chance at fab BoB product.

What do you think of the new lines? Do you have a favorite? I love them all and for different reasons, but I cannot wait to get my hands on Block Party! The primary colors are perfect for my yet unscrapped photos from last years Memorial Day and July 4th celebrations, plus Abby had on a beautiful red and white dress for Easter...rather non-traditional, not a pastel, but in her favorite color. Block Party is going to be perfect to scrap all of these photos that I am anxious to get to.

Then there is Peacock Lane...Abby is totally in awe of the color combo, she loves the purple and  I love the turquoise - you betcha baby!! We are two giddy women over Peacock Lane! We just happen to have a stash of peacock feathers from farmer Rick, so you can bet that my brain has been busy working out ideas on incorporating some of these into a project or layout.

Rev it up for Petal Pushers! Bright, bold, sassy, FUN!!! Not so long ago I used to love to doodle on my layouts, but I have gotten away from doing that. Seeing this line puts me in a doodling mood all over again!

Sunkissed has so many ideas rolling around in my head, it's a wonder I can sleep! I was so excited to see the bicycles...Abby finally learned how to ride this past spring and her pink and purple bike ties in with the Sunkissed line perfectly - she was as excited as I to see the bike designs.  AND the zoo elements...one of the stops on our upcoming vacation is visiting the Columbus Zoo in Ohio. Our family enjoys watching Jack Hanna on Saturday mornings, and we are also doing the open air safari adventure at The Wilds! Cannot wait to scrap our vacation wtih Sunkissed!

And you all caught the introduction of Noteworthy, right? I flipped when I saw these added into the collections!! These fab designs go way beyond journaling cards, but that's a good starting point.

Okay... I need to take a deep breath! The new lines are so exciting and inspiring that my mojo runs over at the thought of getting the new product in my hands. Are you waiting with baited breath to get your hands on it as well? Are you on the edge to find out who our guest designer is? Keep hopping to find your way to her blog, and I hope our guest designer finds the loose lizard in her home!! (LOL) 
If you are curious about my Lemonade Stand card, check out my how to tips here. NEXT, vist Tonya's blog to see her beautiful projects, BUT first, leave a comment below if you would like a chance to win some papers and stickers I have left from the Jazmyne line. (U.S. residents only please - sorry to our non U.S. fans)

Have fun hopping and happy creating!
