Anyway, since I already did an Easter card, I wanted to do an Easter page. I still haven't scrapped last year's Easter photos. Actually - now that I've said that, I realize I haven't scrapped ANY Easter photos. Hmmm...guess I'd better get a move on.
I was inspired by the stamp set Easter Blossoms which has the saying, "Sending Springtime Smiles". I didn't need the word "sending" but I liked the rest. I also knew I wanted to use the Chocolate Bunny stamp and the Greenhouse Gala DSP paper. Here's what I came up with:
I found the layout idea online and although I changed the elements around about 100 times (each), I stuck with the original layout. The page turned out completely different from what I had in mind originally, but that's what I like about digi scrapping. I can add and delete to my heart's content without wasting a thing. Although - I should set a time limit on myself. I have a tendency to spend too long on a page, which would explain why I'm so behind on my scrapping, haha!
I used the drop shadow technique to give some color to my branches and I must say - it's a pretty cool effect. It took a little time, but not nearly as much as I thought it would. I'll definitely be using this technique more often. :)
