More Easter 2011

Here is easter at my mom and dad's.  Every easter morning, my brothers and our families gather at my parents's for an easter egg hunt.  My mom keeps these plastic baskets that have each grandchild's name on them. Last year the egg hunt was outside since the weather was so nice. 

This first LO was created from the May 15th Sketch at Stuck Sketches.  I did turn the sketch to make my photo fit the way I wanted it to.  I inked the edges of my paper since I thought it needed a little more color.

This second LO was created from ScrapFit Workout # 68  Missy's Misting Mania.  I had fun with some scrap paper that I had cut octogons out of.  I placed this on my paper and then sprayed it.  I then moved my octogon paper and misted my backgound paper again.  After my paper dried I  thought my paper needed a more color so I misted with some red in 3 different places.  I then placed my photos next to one of the lines of the mist.  I added a few scraps of paper, a title, some wooden butterflies, some popcorn ribbon, and jounralling.  The paper is a little wrapped so it would not lie flat.  The green you see around the edges is just my backgound blanket.

Yeah, that is what they are.  Last week I created a LO using hexagons and just now I see that Paper Issues has them everywhere.  I created it from Sketch 295 from Scrapbook Challenges
 Here is mine.

Holy Week 2011

Here is a LO that I created from the May sketch from Paper Variety.  It was a great way for me to use up some of my scraps! 
The photos are of some of my family.  My mom and my niece making tomb cookies.  The second photo is of my niece, Becca, reading from teh bible, about the tomb.  Looking on is my brother, the father of both of these girls.  I liked these photos because it shows how we all get together to color eggs and do things for easter.  Last year it was make these tomb cookies, where at each step there was a reading from the bible.

Doily flower on a LO

Here is a LO that I created form Sketch 294 from Scrapbook Challenges
I also used the workout #67 Decorate with a Doily and Step Class #4 Doily flower.  These are both from ScrapFit.
I had some fun with these photos from last easter. I used 4 photos on my double page LO. 
I was able to use the doily tutorial to make my large flower.  I used some scrap oaktag to make a base for the doily and then used another scrap to cover the doily edges and keep the flower together.  I then smeared tombo glue on the circle and added the glitter.

During National Scrapbook Day I managed to squeeze in some time to create a few LOs.  The first one was from the May 1st Stuck Sketches.  It is from easter 2011.
Thanks for looking.
