SCRAPS OF ELEGANCE MARCH KIT.... BUTTERFLY DREAMS #4 Guest Designer

This is a layout that I created as guest designer for the wonderful SCRAPS OF ELEGANCE KIT CLUB http://scrapsofelegancekits.blogspot.com/. The pastel colors in this kit would work well for Easter, Spring, baby or any other layout that requires a soft color palette.  I love this Bo Bunny paper in the kit this month! Also included in the kit are the precious butterflies made by my friend, Renea (Reneabouquets) at Scrapbook.com . Her blog,  http://myglittercoatedlife.blogspot.com/ , has a full gallery of lovely scrapbook layouts. Also in the March kit are ZVA blue crystal flourishes, Petaloo flowers and a seed packet of Forget-Me-Nots! This week, the seeds will be planted in my garden! Last, but not least, is the little blue bow tied around the bunny's neck. 
The Petaloo tissue trim, from my stash, seemed perfect, since it reminds me of Easter Grass. The fence is made with Grungeboard, then painted with Crackle Paint, both by Tim Holtz.
This little bunny was first die cut, then embossed, inked and splashed with a bit of color using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. 
What memories this precious photo brings back! This was taken Easter Sunday in 1992. We had been to church, out to eat, then we drove to Joe Pool Lake for picture taking. The bluebonnets were in bloom and Lee and Elizabeth were happy and playful. Liz was showing us one of the eggs that the Easter bunny left for her.
