For my project today, I created an Easter layout.

I am a gypsy girl and naturally I grabbed my G and started looking for Easter and flowers!

I started out with my title Easter Blessings from CCR Exclusive Easter Blessings and sized the layers to 2 inches.

I cut out the chick from Easter 2010 sized to 1.35 inches

I loaded my cardstock on my mat and cut out the pieces.  

I cut some grass (that sounds funny) from Easter 2010 sized to 2.76 inches.

I cut out some flowers from Easter 2010 sized to 1.71 inches.

I cut the tulips from A Child's Year sized to 1.55 inches.

I copied the flowers onto the bottom of my mat to cut them out in green for the leaf layers.

I cut out flowers in yellow, pink and orange.  The grass and leaves are in green.

The blue I originally cut did not look as good as I hoped, so I re-cut Easter Blessing out of pink.

I inked all of the grass and leaves.  I added the chick in front along with some stickles.  The flowers also needed some sparkle, so I added stickles.

I will add a 4x4 photo of my boys from Easter in the center of the yellow mat.

I really like this paper from DCWV Collage Art stack as a background.

I hope you are having a wonderful spring.  Tulips are my favorite spring flower, what are yours?

Your next stop in this hop is the lovely TERESA.
