Easter 07

Today is the birthday of Buddha. It is a public holiday here so I had time to complete 3 layouts and watch the last 4 episodes of Grey's Anatomy. Tonight I shall watch the latest episode of the Tudors. Interesting serial, that. Love the casting of Anne Boleyn. Naughty stuff kept the Tudors busy ... ROLF!

Three layouts for three different albums, all from our Easter lunch with friends this year.

First layout is done using Club Scrap Impressionist Art kit from Aug 2000. I also used 'Thickers' alpha stickers from American Arts, Making Memories rub-ons, Hero Arts alpha stamps & Paper Pizazz ribbon stickers. 'Pasqua' is Italian for Easter.

Second layout uses Sassafrass Lass Tickled Pink papers, a ribbon, some mini alpha stickers from Sticko Bookworks and a photo holder. Layout design copied from one in a CK magazine. The scalloped edge is done with the Basic Grey notch tool.

Third layout uses Basic Grey Skate Shoppe papers & Alphabets. Paper Pizazz ribbon stickers and Hero Arts Alpha stamps complete this straightforward layout. The ampersand is hand cut from this very nice thick velvet paper. Again, layout inspired by one in a CK magazine.

Will is shy and does not like getting his photo taken. I was lucky that he did not run off but he does look serious, does he not? Ricky on the other hand ... :-)


If snakes bother you, maybe you should not watch this one. But it is quite funny!

And I am sure most of you have been to Las Vegas and seen the fountains of the Bellaggio. It is something I must see every time I visit. I have recorded some snippets but none as good as this following video. It is a decent recording and the song is so lovely! Enjoy!!

Yay! Another layout with an older Club Scrap kit. It's beautiful! I joined CS in July 1999 and many of my kits haven't been used so, please, keep inspiring me! I also have the Sassafrass Lass & BG papers you used, so thanks for giving me great ideas for them. Your family is gorgeous, by the way.
