Vintage Easter Scrapbook Layout

No, the Layout isn't vintage, but the pictures are. I completed this layout for a challenge listed in Bug Creations on Paper Therapy. Lisa, who coordinates the group, does a really nice job with her tutorials (I've mentioned her before). This challenge was to use your CB, ink an embossing folder and use the end result in a scrapbook layout. Check out her tutorial on how to do this. It is well done and the techniques is fun.

Paper
CTMH – Boom di Ada, Hollyhock, Garden Green, Olive, Buttercup, Colonial White
Stamps
From My Stash – unknown
Ink – Stamp Pads
CTMH – Hollyhock
Accessories
Cuttlebug Dies, Cuttlebug Inked Embossing Folder, Ribbon
Techniques
Inked Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Cuttlebug Dies, Prisma Markers, Nesties and Punches

I followed Lisa's tutorial, completed the embossing and then went to work on the rest of the page. The stamps were colored with my Prisma Markers and the letters and eggs were cut with Cuttlebug. These pictures have been "hanging around" for 45 years so I guess it was time that they received some respect. By the way, do you want to venture a guess about the identity of the cute little girl? :o) For Now, Happy Crafting!
