04/13/13 - Punky/Tuesdays : "Easter 2011"

Hello!
How is everyone doing? I hope well!
 
Just wanted to stop by and share my latest layout.
This layout was inspired by 2 different blog challenges.
 
 
First inspiration came from the "Punky Scraps" gals!
I used their latest sketch and kept w/ the challenge guidelines of using lots of yellow and feather and/or Easter embellies.  Although it wasn't required, I was inspired to scrap some old Easter pics of my kids.
 
Here is their sketch:
 
 
And my interpretation :
 
 "Easter 2011"
 
Also "Punky Scraps" encourages the use of paint and ink on your creations so I made use one of my un-inked stamps; the flowers. I'm not much of a stamper but I really like the extra little "oompf" the stamp added to my layout!
 
Speaking of un-used items...
the Second blog inspiration was "Use It Tuesday".  The main theme of their blog is to use hoarded items. This week's challenge is specifically asking for the use of "sticky" things. So besides the un-inked stamp I used a few stickers and the title is made up of hoarded self-adhesive letters.
 
Both were great challenges to work with!
