Scrapping the Little Things



GOOD MORNING & welcome to another "Scrapping the little things"! I hope you ALL had a GREAT weekend! Well, today I was happy to do a few pages in my smashbook! If I haven't mentioned before, I absolutely LOVE my smashbook because there are simply "NO RULES"! You can make these pages as simple OR more detail AND you can basically smashbook ANYTHING! When I first got my smashbook, I really wanted to document the little things that mean the MOST to me. I know, you are probably saying, "Why is she showing old Easter 2010 pics?" Why, it's because I just LOVE that my boys also appreciate the "little things" in life, just like their Mommy & Daddy! We can do something as simple as cook an AWESOME meal & watch a movie & at the end of the night, they say "That was FUN Mommy"!
 I just HAD to smashbook these pictures because.....I just HAD to!;) This particular year "2010", Easter ALMOST didn't happen because the "Easter Bunny" was SOOOO SICK!:(  I remember I was in bed w/a fever & I had told the boys, "I heard the Easter Bunny was sick too!" & they said, "It's okay Mommy, the Easter Bunny has a BIG job & I am sure all the kids will forgive him if he doesn't visit any houses tonight!" OKAY, now how can you NOT come alive and do something, because that right there... was simply "priceless"! When the boys woke up Easter morning, they peeked in the backyard really slow & started yelling "Mommy, Daddy, the Easter Bunny DID come, poor guy, I hope he doesn't get more sick!"! Let's just say that I had 2 of the HAPPIEST boys on Easter morning! Just seeing those BEAUTIFUL smiles on their ADORABLE faces simple made my heart HAPPY!

Okay, onto my pages, for the title, I used my "Lower Case Fun Dies" (which I LOVE!). Of course, I had to use my new "Doily Dies" on BOTH pages along w/my Egg Dies from my "Hello Spring" stamp set! Both of the sentiments are from another easter/spring set called "Happy Hunting". The little banners I stamped the sentiments onto are from the "Vintage Label Dies". That green crinkly paper I actually had FOREVER in my stash & I finally used it! lol....

As you can see, I used more doilies and that cute tiny bunny coloring his Easter egg is also from "Happy  Hunting"! I used the number stamps from "Follow Your Dreams".

I tuck my cute little tag from "Just Tags" & stamped the little bunny from "Hello Spring" & drew lines on there myself for journaling. Then I just staple some green ribbon to it!  Isn't it the CUTEST journaling card ever? hehehe! I love it!

For today, my design team & I were all to use our new "Jar Dies" somewhere on our pages! I decided to stamp that bunny from "Happy Hunting" and add a piece of the doily to it to give it a different look & I LOVE how it turned out! I just glued the doily exactly where I wanted it, then cut off the excess. Again, the egg dies are from "Hello Spring" & the sentiment is from "Happy Hunting"! 

All the papers I used were ALL from my SCRAPS!!! YEP, I was VERY PROUD of myself that I was able to make so many different papers actually "LOOK LIKE" they went together!;)

Now onto my FABULOUS design team. Don't forget to visit their blogs & leave them some L-O-V-E!






I hope you were ALL inspired to scrap something today! Don't forget we also have a NEW "FUN" challenge going on HERE! I  hope to see lots of you playing along~!

Thank you for stopping by & have a GREAT day my sweet friends! xoxo
