Hello blogging buddies and welcome!!Today is our first Whimsical Wednesday Challenge ! We will be having these challenges every week with each challenge staying open for two weeks!! This will give everyone LOTS of time to create and link up. You will love all the themes... they are so fun, and first up is a scrap booking challenge! They will be the first Wednesday of the month.
This weeks Challenge #1 theme is :
“ Make a Spring or Easter themed scrapbook LO, adding a critter or bug on it”
Here is my project...a cute and fun Easter layout.
I tried to keep this layout simple...yet every time I wanted to I thought it needed something else LOL! What do you think?
SO here is what I did..I made the cute bunny with the Create a Critter Cartridge ( I think this is my favorite cartridge). He is cut at 5" as well as all of his layers. I also cut the basket from the same cartridge. I did run the basket through my cuttlebug for some added texture.
I cut some eggs..actually ovals with George and Basic Shapes using some scraps I had when I made my patchwork bunny card. I added some glossy accents to the eggs for the shiny effects.
Both of my mats are cut from George and Basic Shapes at 4X6".
I made the cute banner and ran the paper through my cuttle bug again. The letters are from Cuttin' Up. I put eyelets in the corners of all pieces and strung the whole thing on some twine.
The sun is a circle again from George and Basic Shapes and cut and folded outward to make the sun. I just recently watched a tutorial on this and when I find the link I will post it here. (or if you remember please let me know so I can give the blogger the credit...because it was NOT my idea..I just borrowed it)
I added a journaling mat as well which is a stamp I recently picked up on my last Joanne's run :)
You can't really tell from the photo but the bunny is up on foam dots, the flower is up on foam dots and so is the banner. There is alot of dimension to this layout
I can't wait to fill this page with our Easter celebrations this year.
