Bo Bunny - Love Letters step by step

 If interested in my GIVEAWAY please go HERE!
HAPPY Monday to you all...  Hope you had a great weekend!
Today I thought I'd share with you my January step by step which is part of my DT work for Anna's Craft Cupboard..
Before I share my step by step the story behind this layout& title...
OK! So! my kids have had a about 3 sleep over's at my mothers  in total....
(1 at a time & only been 1 for a night) A few weeks ago, in the school holidays that have just finished up, my 2 GORGEOUS kids went for the first time EVER & together to stay with there Cousins (BTW they live 7 hours away) for 5 days....
 They were Sooooo excited & we were excited for them!
 Me & my husband were SERIOUSLY lost for the 5days they were gone!! We had never experienced this, not having the kids with us! We didn't know what to do without them...
Everything we thought to do we didn't want to cause we wanted to wait & take them with US!! SO! we just stayed home for those 5 days & sort of moped around...
  yeah we went out for dinner a couple of times, but that was about it!  LOL!
 It looks like they may go again next year.. SO! Me & hubby have 11 months to put on our thinking caps!  hehehe!

 Next spray some pale pink glimmer mist at the top right then spatter a few times, also spatter with the fuchsia pink. Spray & splatter at the bottom left with the pale blue. Add a couple of washi tape strips & stamp with the KC – number stamp.

Step 2.From the combo sticker sheet attach the love every Inch sticker just above the washi tape, then cut a 23cmx5cm strip from flutter paper, inking the edges in teal & attach with foam/mount squares. From the reverse side of flutter paper cut a 15cmx13cm rectangle round the corners, ink all edges with teal & attach. Then attach your photo with foam/mount squares. Then attach the frame sticker with foam/mount squares to your photo.

Step3. Cut out from the reverse side of banners paper the you’re my favourite banner & attach with foam/mount squares. Then dab some modelling paste over the KC- Flourish Vine, once dried stamp this with a Script stamp & attach this vine, then add your title.
Step 4. Fussy cut out the hot air balloons from 1 of the combo stickers & attach with foam/mount squares add a few others stickers, then add a few of those BB- Brads.

Finish up. By adding a cluster of flowers, 3 of the GT black rosebuds peeking out from the top of the banner & the others throughout the cluster. Inking the edges of cardstock black & you’re done.
