Easter 2009

I know Easter was a week ago now but we've been on our Jollies for a few days (Isle of Wight)and I've only just started to get back into the swing on things. Not for long though as I'm back to work on Tues....back to work in the sense of actually leaving the house to work as apose to sitting here in my office/craft room being teased by all my lovely stash. Anyway, it'll do me good and I'm hoping I can be more creative in the evenings rather than juggling proper work with the crafting.
In the limited time I've had to craft this week I've created this scrap page of my little boy from last weekend.
(click on image to enlarge)
Every years since Jake was 20 months we've had an Easter Egg Hunt at his Nanna's house. Of course there's loads of photos taken by me, and hubs videos the event. We watched the video along with the very first one on the Sunday evening - it seems impossible to think he was so tiny and cute, especially when he's a right little monster now! But I guess I wouldn't have it any other way. :)
The supplies for this page are purely Stampin' Up! If you haven't already guessed I love the Tea Party papers and the matching Playful Petals set and the colours were perfect for the Easter theme. The title was stamped in Schoolbook Serif and I used the 1 1/4" circle punch to make the letters pop from the page. I like to load my pages with lots of embellishments but after I'd cut out each of the flowers, added a few brads and buttons it really didn't need anything else. Hope you like and tfl, Jo :) Recipe: Playful Petals Stamp Set Schoolbook Serif Alpha Set Tea Party DSP Soft Subtles buttons and brads 1 1/4" circle punch Scallop Border Punch Inks:- So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue Soft Subtles Textured Cardstock (Certainly Celery)
