My Easter Style

My latest creation for the CSI Challenge....AKA  Case File No. 118. I always look forward to Fridays when the new challenge is revealed and delight in creating a layout according to the criteria set for us. Here is what we had to work with this week:
If you like to scrapbook you should join all the fun!

All five colors found in the scheme were used and I journaled about my style of decorating for Easter. Perhaps my years as a second grade teacher have affected me!
Evidence found here:
  • a little metal heart that I painted yellow to go with the color scheme
  • white background ....with a little black text thrown in
  • doodling / pen work
  • fabric
  • fringe (curled paper, in this case)pockets

For fun, I added a little Easter grass. It wouldn't be Easter without Easter Grass strewn all over the house, now would it? 

Techniques used for this layout include painting, inking, masking, cutting and doodling.

My journaling is recorded on both sides of the first tag, and reads, "Being retired, I have more time for things that I enjoy. Decorating for holidays such as Easter is one of my newfound pleasures. Cheerful, soft sculpture bunnies on the sofa and tea cart make me smile. An Easter tree with eggs and more bunnies stand on the coffee table. A 'Welcome Spring' sign outside our front door greets guests. All of these things are my Easter Style, and I wouldn't change it at all. Happy Easter 2014!"


  1. I love the "carrots"! Happy Easter!

  2. I admire your willingness to decorate for Easter, that sounds like fun. Great close ups of the page too. I especially like the resin rabbit perched on the top of the banner :D

  3. Wonderful Easter layout Patty! I really love the cute little bunny and the Easter grass! Perfect for this layout! Happy Easter to you and your family! Love you!
