BBTB - Easter Challenge

Hi all!

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:

I really loved the color scheme - mostly kraft and off white with greenery, glittery turquoise and hints of pink and yellow.


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:
