Here come Peter Cottontail...

Okay so we have 6 months until Easter, or more specifically 6 months since this past Easter, but I have just finished the layouts from this year's holiday. I had to do double it seemed because my son spent Easter on the beach 1500 miles away with his grandparents so with the kids split up we had twice as many photos. I still had a blast scrapping them though. Not sure I took pictures of the boy's layouts, but I did them....I know it. LOL.

The first layout is for a sketch challenge in the a Yahoo group I belong to.  So no peeking if you are in that group...LOL. It was a fun sketch, but very hard to follow. I always struggle with circles and this one called for the title on the curve.

Page two for this layout included several items from a swap I was in long ago. I used the same Easter egg background paper. The little paper piecing bunnies and word bunny are absolutely adorable and I wish I could remember who made them or even what group's swap it was to be able to give them credit. If they are yours and you are reading this...feel free to comment, "HEY! Those are mine!!" =^)

Lastly, is a layout of my daughter making Easter sugar cookies. The bunny paper piecing was copied from ones that were in a swap folder on a Yahoo! Group I'm in. Just can't remember which one at the moment. I saw it several times and kept wishing I was in that swap group and then decided it shouldn't be too hard to reproduce...basic shapes and all. Well I was right, up until the chalking. I had to scrap it and redo the whole thing after the first failed attempt. The sheer ribbon on the left side of the journal box is tied through Easter egg shaped eyelets.
