It’s almost time for Peter Cottontail to hop down the bunny trail! One of my favorite Easter traditions, has always been hunting eggs after our Easter church services, and my kids love it today! Last year, we had two egg hunts, which they loved, and I managed to round them up for a photo before they took off to find their eggs.
The Chasing Dreams collection by Maggie Holmes is so versatile, and I thought the colors and patterns would work great for an Easter themed layout. I used the Keepsake paper for the background of my layout and then cut a variety of different sized flowers from several other papers in the collection. Then I arranged the flowers to fill in the background, and machine stitched each one, to create texture in the center of the flower.
I placed the photo at the bottom of the layout, and clustered the title and some embellishments around it. I like mixing different letters in my titles, so I used the Cloud Thickers and the Oasis stamp set to create the title for my layout. I just stamped the Oasis letters with Black ink and then cut each letter out. Once I had them in place, I machine stitched through the word “Good” to add a bit of interest.
Since I placed the photo at the bottom of the layout, I knew I wanted to create a visual triangle on the layout. I created two smaller clusters, one at the top of the layout and one on the right center of the layout. There are a couple of cute bunnies here and there in the Chasing Dreams collection, so I knew I wanted to add the bunny sticker to one of the clusters. You can’t have an Easter layout without a bunny!!
