first Easter layout

Hello! How's everyone's weekend going?? Mine has been nice and relaxing in the indoors out of the 107+ heat! I have been working on the new CCG challenge this weekend, and finally got it done! It was a tough one for me, girl colors!! Well, just one girl color, but it makes the whole thing look girly, lol. Of course, I don't have any girls, so I worked it the best I could, lol. Here is my layout:

 This is a picture of my oldest and me on his very first Easter. 

I used sketch #51 over at Sketches in Thyme:

And here is the current challenge at ColorCombosGalore:

Here are some detailed pics for you!!
Don't you just love the pinwheel flowers?! Those were from Hobby Lobby. I took them of their wooden rods and hot glued them back together and added the buttons. I also made those cute little bees out of buttons! I used brads for the antenas, lol, I just love them!!

I thought these wooden letters worked perfect for the title.

I love how dimensional this is!

I LOVED how this turned out!! I used individual alpha stamps to make it staggered, and it just looks so good!!

For this layout I used:

  • Paper: The Paper Studio and some scrap paper
  • Cardstock: DCWV SafariKids cardstock and scrap cardstock
  • CraftSmart ink pad (fuschia)
  • Stampin Up ink pads (mint melody and basic black)
  • acrylic paint
  • PLAID wooden letters
  • EKSuccess Image Tree wooden rubber stamps(antique typewriter lower abc stamps)
  • Stickopotamus stickers
  • SpareParts embellisments
  • Cuttlebug
  • pinwheels
  • buttons
Thanks for stopping by!

Much love,
