Easter Egg Smackdown!

Sheesh, the glitter has hardly been brushed away, cupid is just retiring for another year, and there are probably a FEW chocolates still left but here I am jumping into Easter!!! 

March 2011 issue

I made this adorable layout for this week's fresh and happy SPCC color combo:


I've had this picture propped up in front of my crafty workspace for a while now just waiting for the perfect prompt.  It's just so funny!  Only my kids could take Easter Egg dyeing to the hood!! 


The style of my layout (the ribbon rainbow) is inspired by this layout done for this week's Sketchy Thursdays submission by our Guest Design Member Sandra.  I am so impressed with Sandra's style.  It's so gorgeous!!!  Wait til you see what she made for ST for next week!!! 


This type of layout is perfect for me because I own waaaaaaaaaaaaaay more ribbon and fibers than any sane person should.  And I keep adding to my collection!!!!  I can't help myself.  I do have to say, though, that I had a hard time coming up with a decent amount of bright yellow offerings. 


I LOVE the way the stitching came out on this.  I've had this "loopiness" happen before on the backstitch and have often tried to imitate it but can't seem to figure out what set of circumstances initiate it.  It can't be the type of thread because most of my thread is the same type.  But in any event, I ~heart~ the way this looks. 


I just found this alpha stamp set in my foam stamps stash.  No idea why it was in there and I'm bummed I've lost all that time I could've been using it.  It's (can you say it with me?) awesome!!!! 

Be sure to check out what the rest of the SPCC Divas made for your inspiration this week and play along with us!

Have a happy Monday!

OK, your kids are so adorable! How funny is that picture, and you totally nailed the title for this!

And I think you couldn't find those stamps due to the giant bowl of used stamps that you have. Were they in there? Or hiding behind it? LOL. I had to bring that up!

Hope you had a great weekend trip! talk to ya later, babe!
