Easter Show Layout

Just wanted to share a couple of layouts I did today on the Easter Show.  With so many photos I tend to do a double layout.   I always seem to do a main page and then a contrasting page with all the little passport photos on it.

I have used a mixture of October Afternoon papers from Flying a Kite to Thrift Shop.  Some of the papers used were One of a kind, Ice Cream, Lemonade PP-514, Sprinklers, Dandelions and Thrift Shop Journal Cards.  I have also used ric rac, ribbon and a handmade flower by Gilly.  I have also used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Turquoise Blue to spray Gilly's flower.

Easter Double Layout

Hi All,

Well sorry I have been missing in action for a while but with school holidays I like to focus on the children and do as much with them as I can.  We had our old neighbours visit us from the sunshine coast over the Easter period (they have 4 children) and all the children in our street loved catching up with them.  When we all built in our area 9 years ago we all had young children and we made it tradition to have an Easter Egg hunt on Easter Sunday.  From the very first one we have never looked back. 

I have completed a double layout, (yes it has grown from a single page to now fit all the children on) using Flutter by Making Memories.  I have  used two pink Bazzill cardstock for the backgroud.  Flutter Stripe and the Flutter Circle Die Cut,  I have also used Scrapware Easter Eggs painted and kindyglitz them. Thickers for the titles and Easter Jolees, also a Martha Stewart Punch for the trim at the bottom.
