These photos were taken on Saturday. We attended a local Easter Egg hunt for the boys sponsored by the Optimist Club of Mt. Pleasant. We all had a wonderful time. My sister took our picture just before we left for the day.
Here are some closeups....
I tried some different elements out on this layout. I rubbed three colours of Tim Holtz Distress Inks on plastic and then sprayed with a little water. I then pressed my Kraft paper cardstock (Recollections) onto the plastic to absorb the ink.....I think I used a little too much water, but I still like the results. To speed up the process I used by heat gun to dry the paper.
I stamped the chevron stamp with more Tim Holtz Distress Ink.
I also used a bunch of tangled up thread for the first time on this layout....I just love that effect.
The silver arrows are My Mind's Eye.
I used some leftover strips of Kaisercraft - Hello Sunshine Collection and a couple of Die Cuts from the same collection for embellishing.
Heidi Swapp titles in two different styles for my title.
I also dabbed some Tattered Angel Chalkboard Glimmer Mist on the background in two colours - Canary & Mantis. The two tags that are shown are packaging...one from a shirt my husband bought and the Basketville is from one of the basket we used for Easter baskets for our grandsons.
The camera badge is from American crafts....and the filmstrip washi and cloud is from my stash.
I used the sketch #117 from Let's Capture Our Memories as inspiration.
I was also inspired by the following challenges.....
The April Retro Recipe challenge at Kraft + Plus.
And the challenge #179 at Use Your Stuff to use paper strips.
And Beyond Grey Challenges #67 - Spring Green with Spring elements.
And Lessology challenge #46 - Typeface....and the challenge is to use different fonts on your layout. I have 7 different ones on my layout.
And the Linky Party at Paper Issues.
Thanks for stopping by....
