Cupcakes, easter baskets and a whole lotta scrappin'
Easter is one of my fave holidays....relaxed and laid back, time spent with family, the kid's excitement, not to mention the yummy food (seafood feast on Good Friday and traditional roast on Sunday)....all the good stuff without the stress that Christmas brings. Love love love it! We made these sweet little chicky cupcakes... ...had the mandatory Egg Hunt (check the funky squishy lime green baskets this year!)... ....and partook in the wonderfully fun and inspiring Easter cybercrop at Scrapwitch! One of the best ever. Why? It went for a whole week. Lots of spare time to fiddle around with each layout. I had my Mum and best friend Linda here to scrap with me. Seven cool challenges from seven different lovely forum members. LOTS of very nice layouts produced by everyone. I managed six. The only challenge I didn't complete was my own! Scrap An Item You Love: Scraplift a Karen McLauchlan layout: Make Your Own Pizza....every "topping" corresponded to a different page element: Race Horse Name as a Title - who would have thought there'd be so much scrapping inspiration in a form guide???: Digital/Hybrid Challenge....my first ever wholly digital page....sorry Amy, but give me the "real" thing any day!!!: E.A.S.T.E.R. Challenge....use elements beginning with the letters in the word EASTER: Then my challenge was to create a LO using a list of steps or instructions as the basis for journaling, with a title of "How To" or "So-and-so's Guide To". This had hilarious results! Must try it myself some day.... That was my Easter! Hope yours was just as wonderful!
