Hoppy Easter

 Good monday morning to everyone. Nice to see you here. With easter just around the corner Cheery Lynn Designs  is doing a easter theme for their challenge this week. I decided to do a 12x12 easter title page layout.  This page was so enjoyable to do with the awesome dies I had to work with and of course with the cute little bunnies tucked into the layout. I found some beautiful easter paper, then using the plaid pattern for the background and the easter egg paper for the center of the page. I use the Chicken Wire die as a stencil to add some different pattern to two of the corners. I also used a piece of the Chicken Wire in the center but keeping it very light so it kind of blends in a bit. I fussy cut two eggs out of the scraps of paper and popped them up on top of the eggs on the paper.  I then used the Expandable Tiny Borders to decorate the eggs for added texture. I stamped , colored and popped my bunnies up and tucked them into their spot adding the  Grass Border to ground them. The Mesh Border was perfect along the bottom. Love that it is a 8 in long die. Used the Ribbon Eyelet Border with two sizes of ribbon threaded through it and added it on top of the Mesh Border. Made a flower with a couple of leaves from the BAF #3 and put the Mini Flourish One behind it at the bottom. The Ankara Lace Doily was perfect for the top corner, adding the tiger lily made from the newest BAF #3. With  a few leaves behind it along with the Fanciful Flourish it finished that top corner off nicely. The leaves were from the Rose Leaf Strip.  The center of both flowers were from BAF #3 Embellishments. I cut three different colors of the new Chasing Rainbows Doily and layered them along the right side. They layer so beautifully together. Last I made a Hoppy Easter tag. I used one of the Lace Corner Deco D on the back corner then folded it over so it shows on the front corner. Again using the Expandable Tiny Borders I added the tiny heart border around the edge of the tag. All these dies I used  work so well for scrapbooking  and do step your pages up a notch. Well that is it for this week.
