bunny *licious*

Hi stampers!!!

Guess what????  To honor National Scrapbook Month - I have several layouts lined up to share with you.  I didn't get to participate in the Create with Connie and Mary challenge last week - and boy did I miss it.  This week is a color challenge - and instantly I knew what I was going to do.  Wanna see the colors?

What came to your mind?

oh really????  This is what came to mine- instantly.  :)

Let's start with the left hand side:

Before we go any further - I want to explain.  The post it notes on my pages were intentional - I am super weird about my daughter's face being online - but I don't want that to stop me from sharing my pages and ideas with you.  Sorry if this offends any of you if this is yoru first time stopping by - but that is why there are bright colored squares all over my daughter's face.   lol

The title is chipboard that has been covered with whisper shite craft ink and embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder.  The chipboard is retired - still Stampin' Up!, but retired.  I have a package of the current chipboard alphabet - but alas, I couldn't find it.  argh....but that is another story ;)

Take a closer look at the blingage on this page:

Did you notice the wild wasabi satin ribbon???  I know!  We don't have that!  I took a piece of white organdy ribbon and used my wild wasabi stampin write marker and colored it - easy peasy, lemon squeezy (right from the mouth of my 5 year old :)  )  And then I adhered the ribbon pieces to the page with subtles glimmer brads - {luv} these!!

Now, let's move onto the right hand page......

Don't you think the little tag is so sweet peeking out from behind the pictures?  The butterfly was punched with the butterfly punch out of pale plum card stock.  I stamped the flourish from Easter Blossoms.  I sure hope this set makes it into the cattie.......please, pretty please with a cherry on top.........  The eggs and sentiment are also from this set.  I sprinkled the eggs through wild wasabi grass  :)  The polka dot paper is from the subtles designer series paper pack.  What a great way to get designer sheets from an entire color collection.  I hope it doesn't disqualify me for using retired stamps - I made these layouts last week when they were current...but wanted to save them for National Scrapbook Month - not thinking that the stamps wouldn't be current :(

I would love to know what you think of this 2 page spread.  I was so inspired by the color choices....and I hope in some way I have inspired you.

Happy Stampin'
