Happy Easter - Huge post!

We have had a great weekend so far! Lots of Chocolate and fun!

The Easter Bunny left some footprint and some of his little cotton tail behind

Abbey is downstairs as I type this eating her eggs and enjoying herself and I just heard her say to Daniel "This is the best Easter I've had!" How cute! :)

OK she just came upstairs, I can see now why she's so happy, check out the chocolate on her face...

The weather is terrible here today. It's been raining all night and it's overcast. A real shame because we were going to take Abbey to the park and have some fun. Daniel and I are trying to decide what to do today, it's the beginning of the school holidays. We will check out what's on at the movies and maybe go out for dinner or lunch...not sure yet.

And on a scrapping note. After Abbey went to bed last night and I was waiting for Daniel to get home from work I went into a scrapping frenzy and got 5 layouts done. I am shocked at how many I actually did - I had a great time too, scrapping, old episodes of King of Queens and Friends playing in the background and chatting to some friends on msn, here are my creations.

OK - they were all challenges that had been set...

1. To use the quote: Dare to dream the dream and sing out loud.

2. To use White with coral and to journal on the photo

3.To use Lemon, pale pink, pale blue and cream

4.Number challenge to use 1 bird, 5 small flowers, 3 buttons, 6 rhinestones, 4 patterned papers and 2 different fonts in the title (there is a journaling tag attached the the ribbons at the left of the photo and the tag is hidden underneath the photo)

5. To use paint to make a pattern on plain cardstock, 3 buttons, 1 patterned paper torn or cut into 3 pieces, paint or stamp the title. (under the photo on the right you can see black ribbon - attached to the ribbon are our concert tickets and some journaling)
I love all of the layouts I have done but I think the last one is my favourite because it is something so different to what I would normally do.

I used my whole packet of wooden flourishes last night on these layouts and being a public holiday today I doubt there will be anywhere open for me to get some more but I need them, I am loving what they are bringing to my layouts!

I hope everyone out there is having an awesome Easter weekend
Until next time,
Shell xx
