A Dapper Wee Bunny!!

Hello everyone & a Very Happy Middle-of-the-Week Wednesday to you!  If you are getting slammed with snow and wind I hope you are doing ok.  We lucked out with rain but of course we have flooding everywhere....that's what happens when you live near lots of creeks, rivers and the coast like we are here in the VA/MD/DC area.  And BRRRRR its still cold...I was just getting used to the 50 deg sunny days...Mother Nature is having fun with my moods lately me thinks.  I just want Spring to come and BE HERE FOR AWHILE!

So I have a project for you today below 
and a HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT...whoot...finally!  
Something that I've been wanting to do for 2 years now but just didn't have any time with family and traveling and teaching so much.  So two years in the making and its ready...well almost ready...still lots to get done on it.  BUT I couldn't wait any longer and wanted to share it with you all TODAY...whooo hoooo LOL!  So remember when you visit I still have lots to add to the site so everyday more things will be put on it for you all to see.

....yes a new one LOL!  

And a very different one at that!  I like to decorate, I like fashion, I like skincare/makeup tips, I like
organization of all kinds, I like to cook, I like to read, I like alllllll kinds of other fun things and most of all I have been wanting to SHARE & WRITE about them!  ScrapBitz is my crafty blog and yeah I always have a bit of a monologue and news about my trips and family here...but I sometimes...ok a lot of times want to share more things with everyone.  Not because I think you will always be interested or even care...but I like to share and this was a good way for me to do it.  So its a LIFESTYLE BLOG of news, tips, photos, projects and rambling talk from yours truly :)  So ScrapBitz will still be my crafty blog so no worries...I'll just have a new LifeStyle Blog as well. So take a gander there & I'd love to know what you think!

I hope you take a visit there and a big THANKS to my friend Veronica of VKDesigns for putting up with my many changes & ideas and creating the blog design I had envisioned...she did an awesome job me thinks! 


A Wee Dapper Bunny!

Today is Wee Wednesday at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog...every Wednesday a few of the DT gals have projects featuring those super-sweet-cute Wee Stamps that Magnolia-licious now carries!  So make sure to hop over there to see my teammates Sheri Willshire & Angela Wood's projects too...they are beautimous!!  I used this ohhhhh so sweet "Wee Bunny"...and he's very dapper with his tie and sweet rose me thinks :)

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

So "Wee Bunny" got dressed all in grey & soft MATCH MY NEW BLOG ahahahaha...I always have a plan and I love color-coordination...I can't help meself!  But also because I love the combo, its soft, spring-like and modern.  (in fact my new office I'm working on will be these colors too)  The papers are a mix of PaperMania Capsule Collection, PTI dots and some scraps.  I used my circle dies and distressed all my edges softly for a bit of a shabby-chic look.  I have had this awesome silk gingham ribbon forever and so excited to use creates beautiful bows.  The flowery-swirl is a die from Memory Box that again I chopped into pieces...cuz that's what I do :)  I even added some of it to my bow knot along with a pearl.  The sentiment is from PTI and stamped in soft gray ink.

I used all TouchTwin markers for my project...if you haven't tried them you will love them when you do.  The ink flows beautifully and they are so easy to blend AND they work with other alcohol markers too.  I have a ton of resources on them at my CMC Classroom that everyone is welcome to use HERE!  
I colored him with a dotted style instead of smooth blending to give him some fun texture!

 That's it for me today...hope you enjoyed my Wee project and my new venture!!
