It's Almost Easter!

...so I figured I needed to get last year's photos scrapped!  I used the new Cricut Seasonal Easter Cartridge for the all cuts on this layout (other than the bead border which is a Quickutz die).

I've had this Basic Grey Lemonade paper in my stash for months now (not too many occasions to use it with a house of boys). I love scrapping Easter photos because it allows me to pull out some pink and flowery paper!  Here is a close-up of the title.  I used Ice Stickles to add some sparkle.

Here is a close-up of the basket and bunny.  I added more Ice Stickles to the basket cut-outs.  The eggs were all cut from the Easter cartridge as well - I cut the zig-zag at 1" and adhered it to the middle of the egg.
I had an open area so I added a few butterflies from the CM Micro Maker punch and decorated them with my Copic Spica glitter markers so they weren't so flat.  I also added a small circle to the center of the bow and colored it with the glitter markers again for the same reason.  The grass was outlined with a Copic sketch marker, and I used a touch of fluid chalk on the outside of the other cuts.

Finally, here is my favorite cut from the cartridge - this beautiful Easter Cross.  I love the detail (but note this does not cut very well at small sizes).  I added the Ice Stickles here again to add some sparkle.  I couldn't quite capture all of the sparkle with my camera, but you get the idea!

I also did a layout for our egg dying from last year.  For this layout, I used my Quickutz Silhouette and cut the tile and eggs.  I'm on a stickles kick lately because I added them here too...hehe.  The papers are from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy line and I just love the little chicks in the egg print paper.

And here are some close-ups...[click to enlarge]
I used a True-type font called Boyz-R-Gross for the title and added a double layer of shadowing.  The eggs are digital design downloads from the Silhouette Gallery.
I still have one final LO to do for some other Easter pics so hopefully I will have that up soon!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
