Cadbury Hangover ....

Did your Easter weekend have you hopping all over the place? Ours did! We had windows installed on Friday so furniture and draperies were all over the place. Haircuts Saturday morning, then off to the church for Easter picnic and egg hunt, after that a birthday party. Up on Sunday bright and early for church (with matching outfits - everyone in yellow and black - and no pictures!?!?!), home to bake an apple gingerbread cobbler, then off to my mom's and back up the road to Victor's parents. I am exhausted!
I wanted to wish everyone a Hoppy Easter a bit late! I made this card using Apron Strings Bigger than a Breadbox kit. I combined the two lines in the kit - Bazzill's Vintage Marketplace and Lily Bee's Buttercup with the fun embellishments in the kit to create this card. The egg was a plain wooden piece that needed some "dyeing"! I rubbed a turquoise ink pad all over it and then dabbed it with a paper towel to remove some ink giving it an aged look. I backed it with scraps of Lily Bee and voila decorated egg!

One of the layouts I did with the Lily Bee Buttercup line in the Apron Strings Bigger than a Breadbox kit was this one for Priscilla's first day of school. The line isn't just for spring pictures!
I kept this one simple so as not to overwhelm the pics of my beautiful Priscilla. I would say sweet but she is a preteen and sweet happens occasionaly but beautiful is an all the time thing!
Check out the converse tennis shoes - a good way to make the uniform all your own!
