Beautiful Layout Using Bo Bunny

Hello! I'm glad you stopped by! Today I wanted to share a recent layout I created and a funny story and pictures to go with it!

First off is the layout. I have gone away from doing one picture layouts as much as possible. I have so many photos and so little room to store the layouts that I am reverting back to multiple photo layouts.
Maddy gets me....those curls, those big blue eyes, her personality. These are some of my photos that I just LOVE and feel show her personality.
I stitched the border by hand. I also made all the flowers. For the orange and brown ones I used my Cuttlebug Asterisk Die. punched tow of the larger flower and layered them. I then cut a circle out of this burlap type material I have and cut around the circle shape in a spiral to the center. I tightened the curl and glued it to give it a bit of dimension. I then put a dab of glue in the center and twisted some jute/twine in a circle for the center! I also made the turquoise flower from a zipper by gathering the non-zippered edge and glueing it along the way.

Now on to the funny story...Little Miss Maddy, oh my Little Miss Maddy, how she brings so much life to this house! I was running late and didn't get Peyton's pj's picked up or her changed before having to take Peyton to preschool. So when we got back we went in to change her right away. Well, apparently I didn't choose out a good outfit cause it wasn't but a half hour and she had already stripped and was putting Peyton's pj's on! Not only that, but she found his overnight *special* underwear (side note, he hasn't had an accident overnight in,...a long time...at least a few months, but I'm afraid if I take them off he will. That's what happened last time I forgot to put one on him a few months ago, he had an accident after months of not having one....back to story now...). So she put the *special* underwear on, this she did need a tad bit of help with as she couldn't get them all the way up. This is what she ended up with:
It was quite cute, quite funny and I just couldn't make her take them off.
She WOULD NOT hold still for a photo. She kept them on ALL Day! It was the first time in a LONG time that she went over 6 hours without stripping! Lol....Yep, she is my little character for sure and definitely keeps me on my toes!
