The Hunt is On!

Well... I barely got this done on time, but I did get a LO done for this weeks Stuck On U Sketches!! Whew... nothing like waiting until the last minute!

So, over at Stuck On You Sketches, Liz Qualman designed a sketch specifically for this weeks challenge! How fun!! I decided to do a LO from last Easter of my youngest daughter doing the Easter egg hunt! I know... she looks so sweet and innocent... but believe me, you do not want to get between her and a new found Easter egg!! She WILL win!!

I know, I know... this page looks like it was attacked by Stickles... and it was!! LOL!! I decided I wasn't going to chalk or ink any of the edges so I had to use something else!! Actually this is so Lauren... the more sparkles the better!! The Easter eggs were made with printed paper that I embossed with my cuttlebug and then outlined the designs with stickles.... I love the way they turned out!! I just wish the colors showed up better in the photos... they are so much more vibrant in person!

I also did something fun with the title... I used Glossy Accents to cover the letters that I had detailed with a Souffle pen!! Aren't they so cool?!! This is my new favorite product to play with... you will also see it on my Frosted Designs LO that will be posted in the morning!!

Products used:
Paper: My Mind's Eye - Magnolia Stack
Cricut: Storybook, Easter, All Mixed Up, Happily Ever After
Stickles: Lime Green, Star Dust, Cotton Candy, Waterfall, Yellow, Orange Peel
Glossy Accents: Ranger
Misc. gems, flowers, button, and ribbon
Martha Stewart border punch

Thanks for taking the time to look at my LO... and thank you for all the kind words of encouragement all of you leave for me! Barb :)

Hey babe! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cute! I hope to try and look at this again on another computer because I am having issues viewing this as good as I want to. darn it.
So I have to say that I think my favorite part is how everything really looks like it is nestled into the grass...makes me so excited for Easter!
