sorry didn't mean to shout, LOL I am really excited about this week's challenge over at Lasting Memories. This week's challenge is to create a layout about Easter. YEAH... you may wonder why I am that excited about this challenge over all the others? Well, it's because we had just taken Miss Bella to see her first Easter Bunny...didn't go so well (I will explain later in the post), but regardless we got pictures and I can scrap them not only for her album but for this challenge also.
So we took Miss Bella to the mall that day because it was my only day off and I wanted to see her interact with the Easter Bunny. Unfortunately that morning she also had a doctor's appointment and she got 5 shots ontop of it...ugh. She was in a pretty good mood, so we thought we'd risk taking her. Everything was fine until...yup, you guessed it, I sat her on the Easter Bunny's lap. This picture is the best of them... She wanted nothing to do with this large furry thing. I even tried sitting next to the Easter Bunny with her on my lap and no way, no how. Then her mother, who is definately afraid of costumed figures did her best and tried to console Miss Bella...no way, no how. All in all, the picture isn't that bad, but I think we traumatized her. Now when she looks at the pictures, she looks up at me and says: "OH" and looks away. I hope she gets over the fear of the Easter Bunny.
Scrapping Table Easter collection. I added my new peachykeen stamped face, now I wish I had some of the critter faces...hint, hint (family). I also added stickles to the bow. The eggs were also cut with SCAL at 2.5 inches. I had received an egg in a swap and she had layered it with a flowery pattern. I, of course, didn't have such a thing so I created it by just adding some flowers in the egg without welding and cut it out...it gave it a nice pattern affect.
I have seen people "speckle" their background paper, so I tried it also. Not sure if I really like how it came out, but what's done is done. I layed a paper doily that I had cut in half onto each side of the paper and hit it with my glimmer mist. The I took one half of the paperdoily and adhered it over the open area a bit offset. The other side I added my "journaling tag" that I cut using my TBBM...a real cricut cartridge cut. So, I hope you enjoyed my layout for this challenge and keep your fingers crossed that I make the Design Team. You have to enter all challenges this month to be considered for the Design Team. So far, so good...
Oh and by the way, I created this entire layout on my new Scrapin' Easel...and boy do I love it. I can change the look easily using the magnets that come with it as you can see by the picture below versus the finished layout above. Check here if you have never seen it or know what I am talking about. I love that I can scrap at an angle, makes it a lot easier for me because I stand when I scrap. LOVE IT!!!

Very nice layout. I'm glad you got a photo that wasn't too bad. Poor Bella. I love the eggs and the grass at the bottom of the page. They really pop off the page. Thanks for joining us at Lasting Memories.ReplyDelete
