|Story:||It seems my kids are never too old for an Easter Egg hunt. This year the weather cooperated and they hunted outside around the house for the plastic eggs. Inside the eggs, they found the customary Scrabble tiles which held the clue of the Easter baskets location. The Easter Bunny delights in stumping them with the clues. This year it was extra tricky, because the Easter Bunny had hidden the baskets at the oldest’s house, since he had moved out just months before. The Easter Bunny must have contacts at realtor.com!!|
Unfortunately, the phone photos snapped of them discovering the baskets did not turn out – so the change in location mid-hunt had a downside.
|Style:||This layout is pretty basic, with 2 sheets of the same paper for the base, and two strips of other collection papers used to make wide strips across the middle. You can see the strip patterns have been switched between the 2 pages. Flip-flopping with coordinating patterns -- Easy peasy!|
I also made a tag for the journaling with a brad that rests upon the indentation in the journal card.
|Stash:||My July 2015 Counterfeit kit, plus the small tag from my stash, the Scrabble tile letters from American Crafts and the Prima Canvas alphabet stickers.|
PostScript: It seems that none of my pictures this month of this kit are coming out very sharp. It could be the brown tones, the overall subdued color palette, the endlessly rainy weather (it is pouring down now at 6 a.m.) or the cloudy windows in the den. Or maybe it is just this camera. At any rate, I’m going to have to seriously work on a solution.
