Eggstra Sweet - 4CC Challenge #288- Guest Designer!

I've had a secret!....

I'm a Guest Designer 
for the whole month


I'm so honored and so excited to be designing alongside these four talented chicks: Tamie, Lori, Leanne, and Tina!  Lori and I are former teammates from The Pink Elephant and I'm so thrilled to be able to design with her again!

This week ---
Leanne is our host

and she has chosen the theme: 


It's just around the corner you know!  
(But seems like I just put away my Christmas tree)!

I love Easter, the religious meaning behind it of course.  My dad was a minister, so it was a busy time in our house as at church.  Yet I also love all the spring-time colors and the symbolism of rebirth and renewal. The flowers and trees wake up from their winter naps and bloom so vibrantly and smell so good!

And then there's the Easter bunny and Easter baskets filled with treats and fun!  I used to love having Easter Egg hunts at both my grandparents' homes after church.

Of course, you're not interested in my trip down memory lane, but it's a nice segway to my card, which involves, flowers and eggs and chicks ---

I wanted to make something springy, colorful and fun!  I chose papers from Doodle Bug's "Hello Spring" and used stamps from Taylored Espressions "Hello Spring".  I colored the image with Copics and Specturm Noir markers. The sentiment is Jelly Bean Time set from Paper Sweeties and the flower popped up is from Hippity Hoppity Easter Wishes by Paper Sweeties also.  The banner die is Reverse Confetti and the scallop border die is Taylored Expressions. I finished it off with a sparkly white enamel dot in the center of the flower.

So, go check out the 4 Crafty Chicks' projects, leave them some blog love and then share your own Easter project with us.  YOU might be the next Golden Egg Award winner!
