Easter Album

This is my second round design team entry. It is a 9 x 9 accordian album from Close to My Heart. For this round we were sent supplies that had to be worked into the project. These consisted of felt shapes, cardstock, grungeboard, ribbon, and brads. For the front cover, I cut the title Easter Memories from the Pooh Font cartridge and the bunny from Doodlecharms. The next page on the inside cover I used some of the felt pieces provided and some Easter diecuts. The bunny is a sizzix die and is cut out of the
grungeboard we were given to use. I added a pompom for the tail. The buny and basket are from Stretch Your Imagination. The chicks on the bottom are another sizzix die. All the patterened paper for the project is from My Minds Eye and the cardstock is core'dinations.

I used my nestabilities to mat the photos on the egg hunt page. The grass border is cut from Paper Doll Dress Up and the eggs are from Doodlecharms. The bunny is from Stretch Your Imagination.

This next page features one of my favorite pictures ever.
I used more of the grungeboard bunnies, some petaloo flowers and made a paper doll to look the picture of Ainsleigh. For the next two pages, I decided to play around with cropping pictures to get some better shots. There was some glitter paper in with the supplies we were required to use, so I used them on the eggs. I needed the rest of my eggs to be glittery too, so I fan them through the xyron upside down and glittered them.

Now for the back cover. Since the front of the album featured a bunny face, it's only natural that the back of the album would also be the back of the bunny. I used the rest of the ribbon provided and glued on a giant pompom for the bunny tail. This was a really fun project to make and it will be hard to send it away. I will have to recreate one for myself.
