Scrap Your Story - Hippity Hop!

Have you been playing along with the challenges at Scrap Your Story? This week's challenge is an EASY one! We challenge you to make a layout about anything SPRING! Spring colors, spring pictures, spring events, anything spring!

I decided to work on this challenge right after Easter, so I had a good amount of photos to work with! I decided to use this ADORABLE picture of my niece with all of her Easter goodies (most of which mom and dad will partake in). We let her dig through her big Easter basket and she found that huge chocolate bunny that she has her mouth on. I tried pulling it away from her.. well, she pulled harder! She held onto it so hard that when I would pull it from her... I would practically pull her bottom off the ground because she was pulling it so hard too! So cute.


First off, this layout is based on a wonderful sketch by my friend Missy Whidden. She has been offering up quite a few sketches lately and I have been loving using them! I stayed close to her sketch, as well as her layout inspiration. I used the March Scrapbook Circle kit and added a few of my own bits and pieces. How cute is that little Easter bunny?! 


I love all the new Thickers that they are coming out with. I wish I could have them all! To do the stitching I used a Bazill stitching template that I bought probably 3 years ago. I am proud of myself for using an old supply! 


This LO uses lots of Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm goodness as well as some Alison Kreft! TFL! Be sure to play along this week!

This is such a lovely layout. The background paper is stunning with the paint splats and I love all the layers. Perfect title for spring.
