It's Easter time over on the Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge blog! If I were really good I'd have some adorable little Easter projects for ya to give to Pezza and the grandbabies but nope! How I have less time now than I did when she was little is beyond me but I suppose I do volunteer for way too much. I also don't have a housekeeper the way I did back in the day :P
Anyway, instead I did a layout of Pezza with last year's Easter pics:
Oh how I do love completing a good 2 page spread!
I love the pics on this page because of the great action sequence I somehow managed to catch when she reached up for an egg that was too high - her poor sad little face!
I couldn't help but include all these pics - she tends to take herself way too seriously when I pull out the camera which makes it hard to get good natural facial expressions. For some reason on this morning she was relaxed and hamming it up.
I used several other challenges as inspiration for this page and one in particular really spoke to me - it was a picture challenge at Stampin' Royalty:
Of course I had to include a bunny cut - this one comes from Kate's ABCs - probably one of my MOST favorite Cricut Cartridges.
The glitter in the inspiration picture made me decide to pull out some glitter paper I have had for at LEAST 5 years and never used. I do love the way the paper looks and it cut well in the Cricut but the back is a very slick almost plastic feel and I am skeptical about it sticking to what it's glued on to for the long haul. I guess we'll see......
One of the things I love doing when I make a grid style design is to use card sketches for some of them. I used more glitter paper and even remembered to pull out my Cuttlebug and embossing folders! Yay!
I went over the embossing with a kraft colored chalk Dew Drop ink pad to enhance it. I would have liked a pink glitter paper here but no luck :)
I hope some of you will join us for our challenge at BBTB2!
I went through lots of challenge blogs this week looking for inspiration - I miss participating in all the challenges all over the interwebs. I remember when there were just a handful of them - now there are dozens and dozens! I was inspired by the following:
- Stampin Royalty - Inspiration picture
- Tuesday Morning Sketches (I remember when this challenge started - so happy for a chance to use one of their sketches.)
- Die Cuttin' Divas - sketch
- Shopping Our Stash - Tie one on - use ribbon, lace or twine
