'Easter with Family'....a Layout

Monday, May 23, 2011

Good Monday morning everyone. I hope your weekend went well...time goes fast I know. 

Today will be my last May Guest Designer post for Frank.  Again, thanks Frank for asking me to do this. It has been fun and I've met some new fabulous people.

This two-page spread, I'm sharing, features pictures of my family when we gathered for Easter dinner. It took me awhile to come up with paper that incorporated the red clothes worn by my son and his wife. Everyone else was in pastels.  The patterned paper has flowers with a medium red and pinks in it works for my eye. I want to share that the colors on these layouts are more vibrant than appear here... very hard to take good pictures on gray cloudy days.

The font on these layouts is from the Cricut cartridge Gypsy Font.

That small 'nest' for the three eggs is a piece of twine I had laying around. The eggs are cut using the Cricut cartridge Easter 2010.

The ribbon was purchased at Jo Ann's and is on a roll.

The little pink flowers were the 'leftovers' from the pink egg in the nest. When I lifted the egg the little flowers were left on the cutting mat. I like using the 'freebees'.

The scalloped circle and green piece are cut using the Cricut cartridge Easter 2010, the word "family" is cut from the cartridge Lacy Labels.

Thank you for reading and looking at these layouts. I had fun doing them and sharing them with you. Also thank you for checking out my blog. Please visit anytime. Take care.
