What says Easter more than a cute bunny (well except chocolate maybe).
Obviously, I must have liked the colour challenge last week as I have used the same colours again this week (they just happened to match the bunny my Sam is holding in the photos).
Here is a close-up of the punch art bunny. I have sponged all the separate pieces to give him a little depth.
The base of my layout is Tempting Turquoise cardstock topped with a sheet of paper from the Windsor Knot DSP set. I have cut a circle from Green Galore cardstock and stamped this with the Polka Dot background stamp.
I have used my Scallop border punch and Curly Lable punch on some cardstock strips and added some So Saffron ribbon for a bit of detail. The flowers come from the So Tweet chipboard set and have just been sponged with ink.

These colours just make me feel happy..so bright and fresh.
I also used the double slot punch to thread Tempting Turquoise ribbon along one edge of my layout.

I started with a base of Night of Navy and distressed a sheet of So Saffron patterned paper from the Windsor Knot set.
I used some felt flowers and a silver flower Designer Brad for another embellishment.
I used the So Swirly wheel on a strip of Brilliant Blue cardstock and clear embossed. It has a nice texture irl.
Thanks for stopping by.

If your mojo is missing I would definately suggest attempting a few challenges. I recently discovered another scrapbook challenge. This time it is at Stampin Addicts.
My chipboard letters for the title were sponged with black ink and I also stamped the "Wild about you" from the Wild About You stamp set in black ink. My photos were all edged with Stazon to help them pop off the background.
Thanks for stopping by.

These photos were taken of my bubba last Easter. The journalling reads:
This was Samuel’s first Easter and he was totally in awe of the shiny foil wrapped Easter Eggs. For the Easter break we camped at Lake Keepit and early Sunday morning the Easter Bunny left one of these eggs in Sam’s cot. Imagine my surprise when I woke up that morning and looked in his cot to see the chocolate egg still intact up one end of the cot and the foil wrapping rolled up in his fist. I have no idea how he managed to do it without breaking the egg (or the wrapping for that matter) but he was certainly pleased with his treasure.

Here is a close-up of the flowers and little chick from the A Good Egg Stamp Set.
I have cut flowers from my patterned paper and then used Build-a-brads with co-ordinating paper for the centres. I have also use the same paper for the little chick's shell.
The ribbon was from a freebie ribbon bundle that was available last year and co-ordinates perfectly.
For my title I have used Chipboard letters sponged with Riding Hood Red Ink.
I printed my journalling on Very Vanilla card and then sponged over the top with So Saffron ink.
