Little Bo Bunny book

My dear friend Joan retired on November 3rd. Even though we didn't work side by side in our department, it's different now without her here. I can't just pick up the phone and chit chat about what's new in the world of stamping and scrapbooking (yeah I know...while we were working!) We are both great multi-taskers who can chit chat and still complete our work all at the same time. I'm very happy for her to be retired and to have the time to do whatever she wants when she wants, but I'm still gonna miss her like crazy. A bunch of girls at work, we call ourselves "the lunch bunch" had a little get together for her the weekend before she left. I was asked to make a card for her send off. I decided instead of a card, I would make a type of journal book, that way everyone could write a little bit more than just their name on a card. She loved it, (thank God!) and said she is gonna put it on her shelf in her retirement place in Arizona! I was pleased with the way it turned out, it was easy to put together actually. I just got a little Bo Bunny book and then embellished it up. I did add a chip board cover cause the cover that was on it, was pretty flimsy

This is the cover. All I did here was create a chipboard cover and then put a nice rectangle on from the designer paper and embellish it with flowers from my BFF's flower drawer (thanks Vicki!)
This is the inside of the front cover. I wanted it to be a nice saying, but one that was about reflection as well as moving on to a new chapter in her life.

This shiny cover was actually the cover of the journal, but I didn't think it would hold up over time.

I used our punch to punch out Best Wishes and used some sticker letters to create Joan's name.

This page is simply embellished with some prima flowers.
This page I added the "thanks" sentiment along the top.
This page was embellished with the large flower sticker
This page I added the rub on at the top of the page and the primas with the glitter brad at the bottom.

This one is simply a rub-on

This was a rub-on a well.
This bee is a rub-on too. I love those glittery rub-ons. they look beautiful in real life.

Just the bracket sticker on this page.

OO this is my fav - with the Flower Soft on the flower!

Just a little flower sticker with a rhinestone in the middle.

Some letter stickers to spell "so long"

I liked that little owl, so I coloured him and cut him out and then popped him up on the vine of flowers.

I didn't do anything to this page at all - I thought it was already pretty enough!

Just a flower sticker on this one.

I stamped a little retirement sentiment on that tag.

I stamped the flowers and then punched out the circle ring and popped it up around it.

Just stamped the definition of "remarkable" and then punched it out with a square punch

Added the "Hugs to You" sentiment and some brownish rhinestones.

I punched out a leaf with my punch and added the Glitter Ritz to give it some pizazz!
Just a little circle sticker.

Stamped "good luck" across the bottom with some tiny rhinestones.

Stamped the sentiment "you deserve the best" then I cut out and popped up the word "you"

and this was the sticker that I put on the back cover of the journal. Then we passed it around and everyone had a chance to sign it and put some of their memories and thoughts in the book for Joan.

You did such an amazing job with this, I love it and I hope Joan brings it out to show me when she moves to my part of the world.
Love you,
yer old sister, Di
