May's Challenge and Sponsored Giveaway by Bo Bunny//April's Winner

I'm so enjoying these challenges.  To let you know how I've come up with the challenges to date I usually pick challenges me.  I only hope I'm not alone when I do it!  LOL 

April's Challenge Winner is
I worked on learning how to use the Silhouette Cameo, which I'm still a little afraid of. ;) I used it in a project I've never tried before - making drink coasters. I totally love the way they turned out, especially with the Silhouette shapes! Totally worth learning something new for this.
Congratulations Jacqui.  Send your snail mail address to me at  I'll get it to Making Memories asap!  I hope everyone will jump over to Jacqui's blog, Tanoshii Crafts,  to see the elegant coasters she made.  Thank you Making Memories!

May's Sponsor...Bo Bunny
I wish I could just drink in the beauty of Bo Bunny's paper.  It is incredible and fun.  Their designers are true paper artists.  I love their blog.  Thank you Bo Bunny for your generous gift for this month's challenge. Before I spill the beans on the details I want to share my Bo Bunny Zoology Mini Edgy Album.  I wish I had three or four of these books.  They are so much fun to create from. 

This is of my Little Honey and her daddy on a special day at the zoo.

Bo Bunny's Zoology Mini Edgy Album; chipboard, letters, stickers; American Crafts Thickers; Leaves by Black Ink; the title of the zoo..."Riverbanks Zoo  & Gardens" is actually LH's zoo ticket tucked under the photo.  

 tag and envelope by K&Co.

 I didn't want to cover up these beautiful animals so I added a title of a popular children's book and a quote from the book.  LH is a book-a-holic.  

 Another of the "experiment gone bad" piece with another cut out from the "post card" piece.  This is certainly a "post card" moment with dad and LH feeding the giraffe.

 LH is so much fun.  She throws her arm in the air like an elephant's trunk and makes a real elephant sound when she see the elephants for the first time. 

 The chipboard monkey embellishment is from My Minds Eye.

I snapped this photo on the way out of the zoo.  She had a great time with daddy and loved every minute.  The zebra and elephant are cut from my ticket into the zoo.   The letters for ZOO is from Glitz Design.  

The Challenge

  5. Bo Bunny is so inspiring, and sometimes their themes are just too perfect. Last week, I picked up a mini-album kit in train shapes for my cousin's train-themed 2nd birthday, as if I've ever made a mini album before! hahaha. I like the way yours is laid out with the front-and-back pages like titles; I may use this as inspiration.
