Hoppy Easter, Happy New Year, HAPPY BLOG ANNIVERSARY to me!

In thanks to my profession, I had time over the Christmas break to catch up on some unfinished layouts from 2009. I had started this layout up north in November at the chalet with Bernie and Peggy. I chose a fresh new palette of citrus leaf, sorbet, taffy, and juniper cardstock as the colours of Spring . I was thinking of mounting the title on little ovals to look like Easter Eggs and had the letters ready to adhere, and the photos were mounted in place. I left a large 7 x 5 space on the left for my main photo. The corner rounder was put to good use and I was pleased with the groupings of baby birds, bunnies, flowers, and children in the photo groupings. We had a simply phenomenal spring last year on Driftwood, as far as nature and baby creatures was concerned. The bunnies were hopping in and out of my front garden for weeks.

I knew the big Easter bunny picture of John and Jacqueline was somewhere in my studio and would turn up with a good look. Last week, dad brought over a huge bags of stamps and papers that my good friend Julia in BC sent along to me via Toronto, and lo and behold, inside that bag of assorted used stamps was an Easter set with 25 different adorable patterned eggs. Instant title! I located the main pic and the layout came together. I was inspired to create the large ribboned egg with ricrac and brads. I cut a white daisy paper flower in half to adorn the ends of the egg.

This decade brings my third year in blogging . I started this blog exactly 2 years ago... and enjoy sharing my thoughts and projects in this way. Thanks for looking!


to all my readers, a very Healthy and Happy New Year!
