Easter Bunny

     These are the pictures from last Easter. I needed to get them in the book before taking new ones this year.

          I love this sketch. You have all month to try it out, post it to the Sketch N Scrap blog, and then be entered for a prize.

Sketch #148
     This page follows the sketch. I used Echo Park's "Easter" collection. The title is a new die cut from Stamps of Life. I purposely placed it above the word "bunny" on the word strip.

     The word strip is continued on to the second page as a connector between the 2 pages. I die cut the year "2017" with a Burniston die and added it below the word Easter.

     The bunny is "Lucky the Rabbit" - a die set from Burniston. I used some pink dotted swiss paper from the collection for the ears, nose and feet. The eggs on the layout are old dies from Echo park. I fussy cut mats for them.

     I need to stop making personal rules. I have a no sticker rule, but here I am using them. I used the tree, a flower, and a pink bunny on this layout. The shiny flowers are also from a sticker set. The grass (Burnistion die) grounds the rabbit and the tree.

This is a flap.

     I found this stamp - "The ears are the best part" at Hobby Lobby a week ago. It was on the clearance rack for 50 cents. It made me laugh, so I bought it. After stamping it I made a flap for it. I used a utility knife to slice a spot to pull the ears of a sticker bunny through. A fun place for one more pic was created. I placed 2 magnets - one behind the pic and one on the back of the bunny mat - to keep the flap closed.
